"FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS200c systems allowed us to centralize control of backup processes, meaning we could cancel out the risk of data loss and also make efficiency gains"
Marco Salvadeo, CIO and Planning & Control Manager, Novamont S.p.A.
The Novamont group is a leader in the development and production of biodegradable and compostable bioplastics and biochemicals, blending chemistry, the environment and agriculture. Its head office is in Novara in North Western Italy and the group’s original production site is in Terni in the center of Italy. Both locations are also home to research laboratories, as is the recently acquired site in Piana di Monte Verna, in Campania. The group operates through its subsidiaries in Porto Torres (Sardinia), Bottrighe (Veneto) and Patrica (Lazio) and also has two commercial offices elsewhere in Europe (in Germany and France), and a commercial/production site in the United States. The group has over 500 employees, with consolidated sales revenues of nearly €180 million.
A significant number of the seven companies that make up the Novamont group (such as Matrica or Mater Biotech) were added in recent years through acquisitions or equity investments. Efforts to streamline included backup processes for data held on file servers and applications managed by virtual machines.
Novamont selected the FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS200c Powered by Commvault due to its features as a backup appliance, including speed of implementation, pre-installed backup software and the ability to centralize operations at headquarters in Novara. Machines of different capacities were installed at individual offices, taking advantage of the scalability of the system.
