Quadratec achieves 1,000 mark with France Telecom Thursday 31 May 2001 PDF Print France Telecom makes Quadratec the backup of choice London, 21 May, 2001 - Quadratec announced today that it has reached the landmark figure of 1,000 servers with France Telecom. In the past five years France Telecom has become a leading client of Quadratec and Time Navigator, its enterprise-class backup and recovery solution. "Through using Time Navigator, we have attained superior reliability, higher than was ever achieved before," explained Frédéric Brisepierre, a former main contractor for the national centralised backup solution. "Performance has been increased tenfold for backups and fivefold for data restoration." Time Navigator has been implemented by several group entities, and in all, about forty applications run in nearly thirty facilities. One of the largest recently completed has been within the Information Technology Supervision and Operation Units to backup sales and marketing application data. "'The project dates back to 1997", explained Alain Levrard, head of Operations and Services (DESSI) together with Frederic Brisepierre. "Our initial remit was to equip the fifty regional units to improve backup reliability - a goal which we have now achieved." France Telecom selected Time Navigator for its rich functionality, particularly the ''Time Navigation" concept, i.e. an innovative and user-friendly method developed by Quadratec for restoring consistent data sets. However, other key factors in clinching the decision included Quadratec's commitment and strategic positioning, product expertise and control of related technologies. "Quadratec had the advantage of having a single business line and had the responsiveness and flexibility we required," stated Brisepierre. Two types of applications are implemented at France Telecom: one for internal processes (support, production management, internal management) and the other for the sales and marketing information system data. The technical solution selected is built around the Bull Escala T servers, Storagetek 9710 libraries and DLT 7000 drives. Twenty-eight configurations were set-up for the initial project serving the Bull, IBM, H.P. and Sun machines. Since then a dozen additional configurations have been added. In all, they represent a backup volume of 120 Tb per month.
