Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based storage systems, today announced that the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has selected the Nexsan Assureon® to improve its object storage archive, assure regulatory compliance and seamlessly support its disaster recovery strategy. Using Assureon from Nexsan, UTA has dramatically reduced its backup window from five days to one while improving the overall performance, integrity and availability of its data, video archives, and CAD drawing archives.

UTA operates a public transportation system throughout the Wasatch Front of Utah. Transportation includes fixed route buses, express buses, ski buses, three light rail lines (TRAX), and a commuter rail line (FrontRunner) that travels from Salt Lake City to Peasant View, north of Ogden. Its main operations are based in Salt Lake City.

As with most public transportation agencies, a large volume of the data UTA must protect comes from video surveillance of the stations and vehicles it operates. Literally mountains of surveillance video can be captured every day. This combined with heavy operational usage of unstructured data was creating volumes of data that UTA needed to efficiently and effectively archive to meet compliance and regulatory requirements.

Initially, UTA utilized the Assureon secure archive to protect its archived E:, scanned documents and departmental/user files produced by UTA’s ~2,000 employees. Assureon provides efficient and secure protection of unstructured data compared to the traditional backup of the same files over and over that UTA performed prior to Assureon. Now UTA protects files from day one within Assureon where they are efficiently stored for simplified recovery and assured protection. In addition, Assureon periodically audits data for file integrity and availability throughout the life of the stored data.

UTA turned to its trusted solution provider, Ramsys Computer for a solution. “UTA’s data growth was having a tremendous impact on their backup window,” said Kirby Park, President, Ramsys Computer. “It was taking them five days to perform a full backup. They needed to find a solution that could dramatically reduce the backup window without requiring heavy time investments or complex management. That’s when we recommended Nexsan Assureon. It would provide the ability to separate the backup and archive streams for the enhanced performance and optimization needed to support remote replication while scaling to multiple petabytes to meet storage requirements.”

Ramsys Computer used a replicated Nexsan Assureon system to build a tiered storage solution. The replicated Assureon system was deployed at two separate sites within nine miles of each other and connected with a fiber optic IP network for disaster recovery. UTA also deployed multiple Nexsan SASBeast® storage systems with a combination of SAS and SATA drives

“I was impressed by the Nexsan Assureon solution delivered by Ramsys,” said John Jones, Desktop and Systems Supervisor, UTA. “We found significant value in the features and were even more surprised by the price. It was a fraction of that charged by other system vendors. With Assureon we reduced our backup window and significantly improved our overall storage efficiency. It has proven to be a very capable storage archive, both simple and reliable. You just set it and forget it.”

Part of the Nexsan Flexible Storage Platform™ of products, Assureon is a secure online archive that is ideal for storage optimization, regulatory and corporate compliance, and long-term archiving. For storage optimization, Assureon offloads primary storage to free up space for active data and thereby reduces the size, time and costs of monthly full backups by completely eliminating the unstructured datasets from the backup stream. For UTA, the existing backup environment was sufficient once Assureon moved the unstructured data sets from the backup stream to the archive stream. For regulatory and corporate compliance, Assureon complies with governmental regulatory requirements including HIPPA, SOX and SEC-17 and simplifies the enforcement of company data retention, privacy and protection policies. Ultimately, Assureon delivers reliability, efficiency, and ease of management UTA needs for its archiving processes.

“Organizations that rely on Assureon often see immediate results in terms of storage optimization and performance,” said Victoria Grey, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Nexsan. “But often of even greater value is the solution’s long term scalability, support for compliance regulations and absolute data integrity. Assureon delivers multiple value propositions for end-to-end data protection by providing archiving, disaster recovery and replication in a single solution that seamlessly integrate into UTA’s existing environment.”
