ProAct helps WM-Data Scania build a new platform for data backup

ProAct helps WM-Data Scania build a new platform for data backup Integrates and consolidates all the company's backup solutions WM-Data Scania AB, a company jointly owned by WM-Data and Scania, has decided to replace its entire platform for backing up and restoring data throughout the company's different environments. To supply the new platform, WM-Data Scania has chosen ProAct Datasystem AB, a specialist and integrator in the field of infrastructure for securing mission- critical information. "ProAct is highly competent both technologically and in the area of project management. This, combined with their holistic view of the customer's situation and future, has led to a solution that we feel will enable us to continue developing," says Krister Blomgren, head of technology for WM-Data Scania AB. WM-Data Scania works within a heterogeneous environment that includes mainframe systems, Unix servers, OpenVMS servers and Windows NT systems. In connection with a review of company operations, WM-Data Scania decided to replace their present data-backup systems with a new, homogeneous solution based on a proposal from ProAct Datasystem. The new solution will form a part of WM-Data Scania's future SAN solution. ProAct will be in charge of project management, installation and supply of the hardware and software. In addition, ProAct will continue to be responsible for service and support. "Users are placing ever greater demands on data backup - especially in terms of capacity and flexibility. As a result, the tools in use today are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex. ProAct has the solid experience and competence that is needed to build intelligent, efficient and extremely secure solutions," say Göran Lund, acting CEO of ProAct IT Group. The most important factors in the choice of ProAct were that the solution had to be comprehensive and meet all requirements for low overall costs, a high level of operational security, manageability, simple operation and realistic implementation plans.
