Stora Enso Modernizes Data Management at the Edge with Rubrik
17 October 2017
Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management Company, announced today that Stora Enso has deployed Rubrik’s market-leading data management platform at their paper mill in Langerbrugge, Ghent to protect their virtual and physical workloads. Stora Enso, headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions, and paper on global markets. The Langerbrugge mill produces 540,000 tons of recycled newsprint and magazine paper annually. As a forerunner in sustainability, the mill also operates two biomass-fueled CHP’s (Combined Heat and Power plants) that produce more than 70% of the electricity required by the mill.
The deployment includes Rubrik Edge, a software-only appliance, to protect the mill’s seven remote office environments across the UK, France, and Belgium. With Rubrik, Stora Enso Langerbrugge delivers automated backup, instant recovery, search, and platform analytics across all environments.
Prior to Rubrik, the company struggled with poor backup performance, complex management, and lengthy restores. In Rubrik, Stora Enso Langerbrugge found a centralized, policy-driven solution for its entire environment. Since the deployment, the company has achieved the following benefits:
6x improvement in backup performance
Significantly reduced RPO (1 week vs 1 day)
Accelerated test/dev for physical SQL
“Stora Enso Langerbrugge supports three production units and five sales offices. It is imperative that we have visibility into all our data and speed of recovery to ensure our operational continuity across all our environments,” said Benny T’Jaeckx, IT System Engineer at Stora Enso. “Rubrik Edge eliminates complex data management across multiple sites, delivering scalable growth and one-click restores at remote sites.”
“Our previous solution was prone to backup failures and irregular notifications. Rubrik offers proactive monitoring and compliance reporting, saving my team headaches and time. Additionally, we’re planning on moving to public cloud, and we know that Rubrik can help us easily get there.”
“We are excited to partner with Stora Enso, a leading paper manufacturer that serves customers worldwide,” said Bipul Sinha, Co-founder and CEO, Rubrik. “By deploying our Cloud Data Management platform, the company is leveraging a single software fabric to bring management simplicity to all its workloads, no matter where the data resides.”
