Improving backup, resilience and cost-effectiveness
Backups took too long, impacting production performance
Improved resilience was required to support a global brand
Cost-effective approach to managing data growth
Coventry-based AP Racing is the leading manufacturer of performance brake and clutch systems for road and race cars. The company’s success has been underlined by the fact that every Formula One Championship since 1967 has been won using the company’s equipment.
The company was experiencing problems with their backup IT infrastructure. As a multinational brand with a small IT function, it was important for AP Racing to find a partner that could help them reduce backup windows, improve connectivity and be able to cost-effectively cope with increasing data growth.
