For teams that create audiovisual content, having local files means time. While the contents are not yet finalized, the files are kept on local servers. For audiovisual content that is still in production and certain organizational needs of the company, the use of Sharepoint Online was not adequate. These specific workloads would need to be maintained on file servers with backups. Backup services were originally maintained by Arcserve software at both company branches.
The software had its license expired, servers hosting the software were no longer guaranteed, had no more physical space on their hard drives to store new backups, and sometimes file recoveries failed.
Venha Pra Nuvem has implemented Azure Sync Services on all file servers, creating a copy of all files for Azure Files. Azure Recovery Service Vault has been deployed to manage snapshots. For files that are no longer used in the operation, but need to be maintained by some aspect, Azure Archive Storage was used. With this set of solutions it was possible to:
- Discontinue use of the Arcserve by the customer.
- Solve the lack of backup integrity
- Troubleshoot physical space using cloud storage.
- More integrate the branches allowing the visibility of the files of each other.
- Reduce the number of servers by 2.
