La Perla Safeguards Global Supply Chain With CA ARCserve Backup

CA Technologies solution enables La Perla, a leading international manufacturer of luxury lingerie, to quickly and effectively back up data

Morges, Switzerland – – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) announced that La Perla, a leading international manufacturer of luxury lingerie headquartered in Italy, uses CA ARCserve® Backup to protect up to three terabytes of critical data across the majority of its 50 servers located around the world.

With CA ARCserve® Backup, La Perla benefits from continuous access to critical data. This safeguards the manufacturing process, whilst preventing disruption to the supply chain. These are core to centralized services essential for the day-to-day running of the business—from email to critical data and business intelligence based on sales figures at points of sale and intranet portals used by retailers and major suppliers. 

“We’ve always been very cautious about data protection,” explains Mauro Ruscelli, IT infrastructure and safety manager at La Perla. “Backup is the last defense in case of disaster and, as such, it must be absolutely reliable.”

The CA Technologies solution proved to meet La Perla’s needs in terms of scalability and capacity to leverage the native functionalities of software tools like DAOS (Domino Attachment and Object Service) of Lotus Domino as well the backup functions of VMware.

“This is the key to fast backup,” Ruscelli explains. “If we had to back up virtual machines in a traditional way, the process would require days, but since CA ARCserve® Backup uses native functions in VMware we can get a snapshot of our machines in just a few seconds, and without any impact on service continuity. If needed, this snapshot is immediately available for data recovery, and the slow part of the process—recording data to the tape—can be performed offline without hurry.”
