EVO Merchant Services Uses NetApp Syncsort Integrated Backup to Reduce Backup and Recovery Complexity


Largest Privately-Held Credit Card Processor Sought Easy-to-Use, Cost-Effective Data Protection Solution to Reduce Backup Windows and Speed Recovery

LAS VEGAS

News Facts

-- Syncsort, a global leader in data integration acceleration and data
protection software solutions, today announced that EVO Merchant
Services, the largest privately-held credit card processor, is using the
NetApp® Syncsort Integrated Backup (NSB) solution to dramatically
reduce backup times and eliminate complexity from the backup process via
a unified management console to address their growing data volumes.

-- EVO Merchant Services processes nearly $26 billion and close to 385
million transactions annually, while actively servicing 285,000 merchant
customer businesses.

-- The company required a next-generation data protection solution that
could provide storage and backup for their growing data in two primary
data centers without taxing the existing network. Additionally, the
solution needed to be able to significantly reduce backup windows in
order to meet service level agreements.

-- EVO Merchant Services chose NSB for the solution's ability to provide a
simplified view of backups, support for physical and virtual
environments, proven track record, rapid recovery and 'near zero' impact
backups.

-- In particular, the 'near zero' impact daily backups using NetApp
SnapVault® enable EVO Merchant Services to back up tier-one servers
every hour without impact. This provides the company with a simple and
efficient way to increase the frequency of full and incremental backups.

-- Other NSB features that played prominently into EVO Merchant Services'
selection of NSB include its advanced recovery features, unified
management console, multiple daily backups, as well as host and target
data reduction.

-- The company is using NSB to protect its mixed environment of more than
250 physical and virtual servers.

Supporting Quotes

-- "As EVO Merchant Services' merchant base continues to grow, managing two
disparate backup systems was becoming cumbersome," said Earl Gordon, VP,
Network Operations, EVO Merchant Services. "As we looked to find a
modern data protection solution, we were quickly impressed with how
comprehensive and fully integrated the NSB solution was, and its
powerful capabilities for enabling us to reduce the impact and time
associated with managing backup and recovery."

-- "With NSB, customers benefit from a modern data protection solution that
can help them achieve faster backup and recovery, supports both physical
and virtual environments, and dramatically reduces complexity and impact
on servers," said Flavio Santoni, Chief Executive Officer, Syncsort.
"Through our unique approach, customers can protect their data in the
face of rapidly growing data volumes while gaining efficiency and
keeping costs under control."
