U.S. Engineering Company Protects Public Safety with Veeam Backup and QSAN Storage Solution

The Challenge

As an engineering firm, the staff frequently uses sophisticated applications such as Bentley MicroStation, Bentley OpenRoads Designer, Miovision camera-based traffic data collection, and Autodesk Civil 3D. These programs are crucial for designing transportation infrastructure and other civil structures, and they generate a vast amount of data that needs to be retained for an extended period of time.

A 12-year data retention policy is important to the firm as it allows the company to access valuable data, comply with industry regulations and standards, and protect itself against potential legal disputes. Due to the retention policy for such long period of time for numerous files, the firm requires storage that is extremely reliable and can withstand the test of time.

The Solution

From the experience that they have had with the 2 units of XS1216S of the XCubeSAN series, the engineering company is very satisfied with the stable performance during the past 5 years.

When the new generation of the XCubeSAN was launched in 2022, they decided to purchase 1 x XS3316D to reduce future expansion cost for their current data center. The XS3316D onboard with 4 x 10GbE SFP+ LAN port not only can save additional expenses for extra connection, but also improves the transmission efficiency. 

The server on which runs the Veeam Backup and Recovery software connects to a Cisco Meraki switch, and then connects to the 3 XCubeSAN cabinets. The firm operates backups twice a day for important workload backup for an average of several hundred gigabytes per day.

The Benefits

The XCubeSAN 3300 series is a proven 99.999% high availability SAN storage system with fully redundancy in modular design. The dual-active architecture and automatic failover / failback mechanism, coupled with cache-to-flash technology, enable the system to withstand critical situations. This series provides enterprise-level performance, scalability, and operational simplicity, with affordable price. Continuing from the previous generation, the XCubeSAN series arrays are the systems of choice for many due to their outstanding performance and reliability.
