Leading Australian Hosting Provider Delivers Superior Data Protection on Nutanix with HYCU

Intuit Technologies is a leading Australian ICT service provider. With five offices throughout Australia, they offer a wide range of services to a diverse array of industries.

They were using a traditional three-tier architecture maintaining separate compute, storage and network. This required technicians to spend a large amount of time maintaining data center hardware and software.

Solution

After evaluating other solutions in the marketplace, Intuit Technologies concluded that they wanted a solution that didn’t require a complex installation and deployment. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud was able to provide a hyperconverged platform that consolidated storage, server, virtualization and networking resources in an easy to manage construct.

According to Ben Sharp, Infrastructure Manager and Solutions Architect, Intuit Technologies, “We wanted to free our technicians so that instead of spending so much time maintaining data center hardware and software, they could focus on delivering an excellent customer experience.”

Following a smooth implementation of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud, Intuit Technologies turned their attention to backup and recovery; leveraging Nutanix’s own hypervisor, AHV.

HYCU is the only purpose-built backup and recovery software for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud. Not only does it preserve Nutanix’s simplicity with native integration and a hypervisor-agnostic architecture that includes AHV, you can learn it in less than four minutes, deploy in less than three, recover in two and backup in one.

Delivers Ideal Backup and Recovery

“With HYCU, it was love at first sight. Its simplicity, elegance and power make it the ideal backup and recovery solution for Nutanix,” Sharp added.

Superior RPO/RTO

The combination of HYCU, Nutanix Enterprise Cloud and AHV enables Intuit Technologies to offer Recovery Point Objective (RPO) / Recovery Time Objective (RTO) in minutes, model that’s scalable and easy to deliver. According to Sharp, “Backup windows have decreased significantly with HYCU compared to our previous backup software and recovery times on failed VMs are significantly faster.”

Peace of Mind

“HYCU gives our customers peace of mind that their data and servers are protected, and makes it easy for us to meet SLAs,” Sharp concluded.
