Datacentrix has supplied South African water supply organisation, Rand Water, with a backup solution, enabling the organisation to resolve challenges on how to cope with an increasing amount of data while maintaining efficient backup operations.
Datacentrix implemented a Quantum Pathlight VX disk backup and Scalar i2000 library solutions to improve backup performance at Rand Water, allowing the company to take advantage of benefits such as capacity-on-demand and critical system redundancies.
The sole bulk supplier to Gauteng since 1903, Rand Water has been a key player in shaping the development of South Africa's economic powerhouse province – where approximately 50 percent of the country's industrial production takes place and the largest two cities – Johannesburg and Pretoria – are situated.
On average almost 3 000 million litres of water are pumped every day to consumers throughout Gauteng and as far afield as Rustenburg and Carltonville in the North West Province, Bethal in Mpumalanga and Heilbron in the Free State.
Says Wiseman Ngcobo, Datacentrix account manager: “Datacentrix was appointed to implement this project due to its price competitiveness, successful existing customer sites and strong technology partner relationships.”
