Investment Giant PICA Saves $60,000 a Year and Gains 5X Faster Backups With Silver Peak Software

Prudential Investment Company Australia (PICA) has improved security, achieved backups that are five times faster, and is saving $5,000 a month on bandwidth costs it no longer requires. All achieved by implementing Silver Peak WAN optimisation software. With more than 500 staff at 25 locations from Port Douglas to Melbourne, PICA generates substantial amounts of critical data. When Technical Services Manager Neal Krempin joined PICA, he found that hourly backups between the company’s data centre site in Ultimo, Sydney, and the disaster recovery (DR) site in Port Melbourne often failed to complete on time, exposing the company to the risk of serious data loss.
