Use Case : EonStor GSc Protects Precious R&D Data of a Chinese Pharmaceutical Giant

A Chinese pharmaceutical giant, with over RMB $100 Billion in market cap, has deployed EonStor GSc Hybrid Cloud Storage Appliance to back up their precious R&D data.

Why chose GSc? In pharmaceutical industry, clinical-trial data is paramount for drug development and must be backed up and protected against any potential mishaps. Therefore, a Hybrid Cloud Storage Solution that includes both local and remote backup is needed to guarantee 100% data protection.

After rigorous selection process, GSc were chosen to deploy both local and remote backup applications. For the local backup, Infortrend GSc was chosen for its high-IOPs performance to achieve low-latency real-time backup of the application data. For remote backup, GSc was chosen for its ability to integrate with the on premise DPM (Data Protection Manager) server using common protocols and serve as cloud cache to buffer these large backup files. These backup files can then securely transmit to the cloud service during off-peak hours.

The resulted solution had been working efficiently and steadily while R&D data is well preserved and protected. Subsequently, the pharmaceutical giant had replaced and upgraded all storages to Infortrend systems.
