Veeam and Infinity Consulting Technology combine to back-up Worldwide Holdings in Malaysia

Property developer cut recovery time by 90 per cent

Veeam Software has partnered with Infinity Consulting Technology in Malaysia to bring data back-up and availability capability to property developer, Worldwide Holdings.

In addition to property development, the firm also has business interests in environmental management services, investment holdings and medical device manufacturing.

“Veeam backs up data twice, on premises and in the cloud,” said Ediwarman Mohamad Taher, IT manager of Worldwide Holdings. “Data is not only constantly available, which is what matters to users, but also secure, which is what matters to us.

“This Availability of data keeps our businesses running smoothly. We have dramatically reduced recovery time by cutting restoration tasks from eight hours to just 60-minutes. Being able to get rid of so much manual repetition means the team can focus more on business outcomes."

In fact, recovery time has now been slashed by 90 per cent, providing the same service that used to take eight hours or more to less than an hour.

To date, the developer has been manually backing up its ERP system, including account, finance, sales, and HR software.

The firm also relies heavily on data availability for its distributed operations that are spread across seven sites. This as well as the manual back-up can be slow and time-consuming and a drain on the 250 staff who work for the organisation.

By working with Infinity Consulting Technology in Malaysia, the organisation was able to leverage a data management solution from Veeam Software, ensuring that its data is always available and recoverable, while saving on the manpower required for manual backup processes.

The vendor’s cloud connect platform also ensured that the organisation’s data was backed up twice a day, on premise and in the cloud, and is available, securely, anytime and in any place.

Furthermore, the organisation is now compliant with business continuity management standards, including meeting recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) requirements. There has also been significant cost savings and financial benefits through this upgrade.

“At Veeam, we pride ourselves in delivering effective, easy-to-use backup solutions that save our customers both time and money,” said Effendy Ibrahim, vice president for South East Asia and Korea at Veeam.
