With data growing 15-20% annually, the Indonesia Ministry of Education (MOE) found that its NAS system could not meet the Ministry’s backup and restore demands. After considering alternatives, the MOE augmented its storage infrastructure with Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage. The new highly scalable and cost-effective solution has enabled the Ministry to easily manage its data growth while also providing a foundation to meet additional storage needs beyond backup and restore.
Over the past five years, the Ministry of Education has seen its data volumes increase 15-20% annually. To protect this data, the Ministry was relying on a NAS system but found that the system could not easily or cost effectively scale to keep up with this data growth.
“We were concerned that we wouldn’t be able to back up all our data or that the backups would take so long that they would disrupt operations,” says Dr. Muhammad Hasan, Head of Data Center and Information Technology at the MOE.
The Ministry decided to augment its NAS system with an object storage solution and established key criteria for choosing the right solution.
“It had to work well with our existing Veeam backup and restore software, be limitlessly scalable and have write speeds that would meet our backup window,” says Dr. Hasan.“We also wanted a single, easy-to-use management interface that could operate across multiple locations.”
After considering several object storage solutions, the MOE deployed 840 TB of Cloudian’s HyperStore platform. Currently data is backed up from Veeam to the NAS system and then to Cloudian, but the Ministry plans to eliminate the NAS tier once Veeam’s direct-to-object storage feature is available.
Since deploying HyperStore, the Ministry’s backup process has been much faster and easier to manage.
“We no longer have to worry whether we can accommodate our data growth,” says Dr. Hasan. “Having seen the benefits HyperStore provides, we’re also looking at the possibility of using it with other applications for storage of unstructured data and emails.”
