Fairfield City Council Case Study

A costly, complex challenge

Located in one of the most culturally diverse regions in Australia, Fairfield City Council relies on huge quantities of data to service a fast-growing community. From financial analytics to CCTV footage, the Council’s data is growing by approximately one terabyte every quarter. Backing up countless data sources manually was not only costly, messy and prone to error – it was becoming almost impossible to achieve within a two-day window every weekend.

Streamlined solution

Meridian IT teamed up with Fairfield City Council to implement IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. This customisable solution ensures the Council can backup and restore physical and virtual systems, on-premises and from the cloud. Robust and cost-effective, Meridian IT has consolidated the Council’s existing platforms and storage devices onto a single, easy-to-use data protection platform.

Fairfield City Council now has a complete backup solution that can keep up with the sheer volume of data it creates as it grows. Automated backups are now performed in minutes rather than days, fuelling productivity. Fairfield City Council is now backing up entire systems that it didn’t protect previously – and yet its backup infrastructure costs are dramatically lower. It now has the peace of mind that comes from having multiple copies of essential backups, supported by near-instant data recovery.

Bringing Fairfield City Council into the digital age with a resilient data solution

Fairfield City Council turned to Meridian IT to deliver a state-of-the- art backup management solution to manage the sheer volume of data it produces.

Located south-west of the Sydney CBD, Fairfield City Council provides essential services to over 215,000 residents, who live in one of the most culturally vibrant areas in Australia. From running libraries, childcare and leisure centres to maintaining sports facilities and hosting events, the Council’s services are incredibly varied – and constantly expanding.
