America’s Leading Transportation Logistics Provider Expects 127%
Return on Investment, Shrinks IT Costs and Development Times for
Flagship Database with Actifio Copy Data Storage
Since deploying Actifio, TTX has eliminated 3 separate backup and replication technologies and saved on storage capacity for copy data, ETL offload, and recovery site storage. Overall, TTX expects 127% return on investment by the end of year three based on the elimination of backup disk requirements, and maintenance of legacy solutions.
The cornerstone of TTX’s technology infrastructure is an application that tracks the movement of freight rail cars across the country. Prior to working with Actifio, TTX underwent a five to six year technology transformation project to migrate this flagship application database from mainframe to open systems. This critical task consisted of moving 100 terabytes of data, 30 to 40 percent of which were copies maintained by snapshot and replication tools. During the course of the migration, the project became even more complex by requiring that nine copies of its production data be created due to the parallel development that occurred.
