GEV deploys ETERNUS CS200C Powered by Commvault, gaining a fully integrated data protection appliance

"The Fujitsu solution was the one we believed would present the least implementation problems because it is highly integrated and comes from a single source. Our expectations were confirmed."

Tobias Berens, Head of IT, Grundeigentümer-Versicherung VVaG

The customer

Grundeigentümer-Versicherung (GEV), Versicherungsverein auf Gegenseitigkeit (VVaG), was founded in Hamburg in 1891 and offers property-related insurance cover. As a mutual insurance company (“Versicherungsverein auf Gegenseitigkeit”, or VVaG), it does not simply have customers, but – according to its charter – members whose elected representatives sit on the general assembly, the company’s highest supervisory body. The corporate policy of a mutual insurance company also differs from other legal forms: unlike a German public company (“AG”), which must pay out dividends to its shareholders depending on the annual result, GEV’s earnings are used solely to ensure long-term price stability and to boost its economic potential. Grundeigentümer-Versicherung VVaG combines hanseatic tradition with modern innovative prowess. Its customers benefit from more than 120 years of expertise and experience, reflected in the quality of its products and services. Its insurance concepts revolve around life, residence and construction. The company is headquartered in Hamburg.

The challenge

Implement a system to store and recover data.

The solution

  • Lower training outlay
  • Less overtime among IT staff
  • Less space required in the data center
  • Homogenization of company IT, one contact for the most important infrastructure
  • Solution can be expanded, offering flexibility
