Greenply reduced costs thanks to SAP HANA, Cisco UCS C240 and Commvault

Greenply Industries, an interior infrastructure company in India, has deployed SAP HANA, Cisco UCS C240 servers and Commvault data protection and information management solution to modernize data center infrastructure and reduce costs.

Greenply Industries, which has a turnover of Rs 1560 crore, has 46 branches across India and has presence in over 300 cities across 21 states.

The implementation of Commvault software ensured Greenply to ensure a robust data management capability which had superior integration with SAP HANA and Cisco UCS.

The interior infrastructure company has reduced storage related costs by 40 percent, slashed data at its source by almost 50 percent due to de-duplication and reduced time to manage data by 70 percent, as compared with their previous CA backup solution.

“One of the key reasons we chose Commvault software was it was one of the few solutions certified for SAP HANA. It also integrates seamlessly into our Cisco environment, which together provides us with the perfect combination to ensure a scalable data storage and management solution,” said Vineet Bansal, chief information officer at Greenply.

Greenply utilized Commvault to manage backups of business critical database servers, VMware Hypervisors and file systems, including a disaster recovery strategy supported by Commvault’s Intellisnap and replication capabilities.
Data is replicated from the primary data centre in Noida to their DR site in Bengaluru, which is a safer location from natural disasters than other parts of India.

Commvault software runs on top of Greenply’s selected server technologies including SAP HANA, Nexus switches and Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS C240 servers), NetApp storage, SUSE, Sybase DB, Microsoft SQL Server and VMware Hypervisor.

Commvault’s solution is managing a compressed 12TB of database and file system backup and recovery data by enabling centralized management of information, and ensuring business continuity.

“Commvault’s partnerships with vendors like Cisco and SAP ensure our customers are well equipped to build technology infrastructure that mitigates the risk of data loss and powers their business for the future,” said Ramesh Mamgain, area vice president of Sales – India and SAARC at Commvault.
