PI Industries Preserves Critical Agrochemical Data by Deploying NetApp Disaster Recovery and Storage Solutions

Improved business efficiency and reduced storage space by 32 percent

NetAppNetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) today announced that PI Industries, ranked amongst the top five Indian agrochemical manufacturers, marketers and exporters, has deployed NetApp to help preserve its critical data. PI Industries, a leading Agri Input and Custom Synthesis & Manufacturing company, chose NetApp’s industry leading storage solution to protect its storage investment and scale with its growing business needs.

PI Industries has more than five decades of experience in working with farmers, and marketing and distributors companies across India. In addition, PI Industries currently operates three formulation, two manufacturing facilities and five multi-product plants under its three business units across Gujarat (Panoli and Jambusar) and Jammu. To help manage its multiple storage solutions, PI Industries needed an affordable, easy-to-deploy, scalable storage and data recovery solution to help manage its disaster recovery solutions at PI’s remote site in Gujarat.

PI Industries faced the challenge of a siloed environment, running different applications on multiple platforms with limited efficiency and no optimization, which created management issues and higher operational costs. With NetApp’s unified technology, PI Industries consolidated its multiple applications (SAP, Oracle, VDI and files) on a single storage platform to reduce complexity and leverage storage efficiency capabilities such as deduplication, data compression, thin provisioning, snapshots and RAID-DP to save storage capacity, thus lower costs. Additionally, PI Industries has cut operational costs by 20 percent by integrating with virtualized environments using NetApp’s storage efficiency capabilities.

With the NetApp’s FAS storage systems, PI Industries consolidated a unified architecture that enables the flexibly and efficiently to manage and control the company’s data through a single storage and data management platform. The robust technology offered by NetApp is specifically designed for small to medium-sized businesses.

With NetApp, PI Industries created a disaster recovery site keeping its business process solutions (on SAP/Oracle for Manufacturing) always-on by leveraging NetApp SnapMirror, SnapManager for SAP and Flexclone to create a reliable disaster recovery architecture that ensures maximum availability for its applications. PI Industries has put its disaster recovery site to use by hosting test & development, and quality assurance from the site without impacting disaster recovery operations. By leveraging NetApp’s capabilities, PI Industries has achieved faster response time up to 20 percent.

“PI Industries chose to work with an industry leader like NetApp because of the business benefits we saw the company could bring to us at our inflection point of rapid growth,” said Mr. Vineet Kumar Chawla (Head IT) from PI Industries. “The advantages of using NetApp’s disaster recovery and storage solutions were obvious. We now have a storage and data management solution that delivers outstanding cost efficiency and extends value to our customers through high performance and lower response time.”
