Networx Australia Chooses RAIDIX ERA Software to Enhance Its Back Up Repository Performance


The NVMe-specialized software for SDS now has proved to be effective for building a high-speed back up solution.

Being internet security experts, Networx Australia provides a wealth of experience and expertise in designing, configuring and implementing the major brands of Internet Security, Firewalls, VPNs, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Detection and Anti-Virus solutions for the SMB and enterprise markets.

Doing business with a great number of customers, Networx Australia faces the challenge of storing and protecting large volumes of business-critical data. To ensure the customers’ data safety and protection, Networx Australia has implemented Veeam Repository backup environment based on top notch NVMe drives powered by RAIDIX ERA software.

Designed as a software RAID utility for delivering the fullest possible potential of NVMe drives, RAIDIX ERA was able to came in handy as a powerful tool that helped to maximize the 16-NVMe drives backup environment’s effectiveness and to increase its speed.

Business Effects of RAIDIX ERA implementation

RAIDIX ERA helped to enhance the backup process, thus bringing the system’s efficiency up to the level that Networx Australia expected. Reducing the total cost of ownership in the long run by decreasing the need for adding more drives and hardware controllers in the infrastructure is seen as an important benefit as well. Also, RAIDIX ERA is a good companion on the path to more sustainable data storage, as it eliminates performance waste and keeps the system vendor-agnostic, which leaves the door for implementing the most energy-efficient hardware truly open.

Sergei Platonov, RAIDIX Strategy Director, comments:

«Today’s critical infrastructures have high requirements for backup performance. In order to keep up with the necessary RTO and RPO, data storage experts opt more and more for all-flash solutions. The NVMe drives enable businesses to solve two tasks at once: they decrease the time needed for creating a backup copy and boost the density of data storage. The ERA technology was developed with a special regard to the NVMe technology, that’s why customers can really maximize the effects of utilization of this expensive hardware».
