After implementing Sonasoft’s SonaSafe solution as the backup and disaster recovery tool, Ubisoft was able to accomplish the following:

  • Implement a real Disaster Recovery solution; if the production server or even the data center is down, customer can bring the system back online in a timely manner.
  • Data warehouse (DW) gets refreshed every hour, hence, providing more accurate and up to date reports for the business stakeholders.
  • Due to more current and accurate reports in DW, users launch fewer queries in the production system, therefore, less contentions on the production database and application.
  • A daily refresh (or Clone) of the production environment is available in US, to troubleshoot users requests or resolve bugs.

“We were looking for an affordable solution to protect our databases. We tested many products and selected Sonasoft’ SonaSafe solution because (i) Replication is done on a data level and it verifies/validates data before applying on the target database; (ii) Sonasoft’s solution provides both data protection and disaster recovery at one fourth of the cost; (iii) Sonasoft provides excellent customer service”said Amir Shafi, Sr. Manager, Business Applications, Ubisoft.
