Mahesh Vaidya, ISIT AE CEO and Chairman of SNIA’s Middle East chapter remarked with obvious pride, “Our established competitors found it hard to beat the winning combination of ISIT’s unique approach to storage and Iron Mountain’s comprehensive solution. The deed comprised the purchase and deployment of Connected Backup for PC from Iron Mountain to address backup risks, improve data protection, eliminate recovery problems and prudently manage costs – by means of a scalable, easy-to-use backup solution.”
Founded in 1917, John Crane garnered a world reputation by designing and manufacturing seals and associated products mainly for the oil & gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp & paper and mining sectors. The establishment with an impressive turnover of $744m presently operates 20 manufacturing sites with more than 6,000 employees, located in 50 countries. Significantly John Crane ME- Africa alone covers 10 countries and employs over 130 personnel.
According to Samad Khokhar John Crane’s Network manger, “Our choice of ISIT was largely based on its storage focused customer centric, inventive solution of Connected Backup for PC that convinced us because of the balanced combination of technical flexibility and business value.”
Today Samad Khokhar is very impressed with the process and procedure “We received excellent cooperation, support and service from ISIT with their simple and effective solution from Iron Mountain which eventually proved very valuable for us.” Having gained from the storage experience John Crane’s future IT plans now include implementation of an automated data encryption and destruction to prevent loss of sensitive data in case of stolen laptops and file/data tracking system for compliance purpose.
For ISIT the next challenge is about focusing on ‘Greener Storage’ to reduce the consumption of energy, space and cooling in the data centre thereby improving resource and asset utilization within the IT industry.
