TAP Portugal modernizes backup and archiving processes with ETERNUS CS8000 Data Protection Appliance

"Fujitsu has enabled us to modernize and consolidate our backup and archiving processes making them simple, reliable and fast, enhancing our business processes as well as helping us reduce costs"

Victor Vieira, Storage Systems Manager, TAP

The customer

TAP, Portugal’s leading airline, has been flying since 1945 and has been a member of Star Alliance since 2005. Its Lisbon hub is a key European gateway at the crossroads of Africa, and North and South America. In 2015 it was elected as the world’s leading airline for Africa and South America by World Travel Awards. Currently the airline has connections to 81 destinations in 34 countries. It operates an average of 2,500 flights a week and has a fleet of 78 modern aircraft: 61 Airbuses, and another 17 aircraft in the colors of TAP Express.

The challenge

TAP’s aging storage environment could no longer cope with the volume of data required and backing up critical data had become an incredibly time-consuming task. It needed a more modern approach to data storage.

The solution

Following an RFP, the company decided that Fujitsu offered the best combination of price, performance, capacity, scalability and flexibility and deployed both the FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS8000 Data Protection Appliance and ETERNUS LT260 Tape Library System.

The benefit

  • Slashed backup times, enabling archiving at three times the previous speed
  • Little manual intervention or internal resources required, freeing up the team to focus on other areas
  • Reduced costs and consolidated storage libraries
  • System is easy to scale and so reliable that there has yet to be any downtime
