Hiroshima Prefectural Government

Protects 400TB of integrated storage with Cloud Volumes ONTAP for Microsoft Azure – Cloud-Connected All-Flash Array

The Hiroshima Prefectural Government integrated a 300TB-scale file server and 100TB-scale storage for virtual infrastructure, using the NetApp AFF all-flash array. The system automatically runs backup six times a day for the protection and recovery of data – critical to operational continuity.

The decision to use the public cloud as a backup center was a major turning point in the Hiroshima Prefectural Government's BCP strategy. We believe that Cloud Volumes ONTAP is currently the most rational choice for data protection and resiliency in the event of a catastrophe.
