China Mobile (CMCC: China Mobile Communications Corporation), one of the World Fortune 500 companies, was established in 2000 in China, is a Chinese state-owned telecommunication corporation that provides mobile voice and multimedia services through its nationwide mobile telecommunications network across mainland China. China Mobile is the largest mobile telecommunications corporation by market capitalization and also the world’s largest mobile phone operator by total number of subscribers, with over 902 million subscribers as of June 2018.
China Mobile (Nanjing) VMware infrastructure includes over 500 VMs. The VMs run core applications including CRM system, OA system, web servers, file servers, databases, and some other critical businesses. All the VM data size is no less than 500TB. As the majority of China Mobile’s business is serving their clients, retrieving/inputting clients’ data from/to their VM database and CRM system is their daily operations. If critical data were to become unavailable for any reason, China Mobile would risk receiving massive customer complaints while also damaging their reputation. Therefore, it is crucially important to offer a VM backup and recovery.
“Before knowing about Vinchin, we were still using the legacy backup solution, which not only takes us too much time to backup and recover VMs, but also not easy to manage, especially when our business is increased rapidly, we have to expand our business system by increasing both physical server and virtual servers. We need a scalable backup solution and we found Vinchin.” Says Dan Liu, IT manager of China Mobile (Nanjing).
Multiple backup nodes deployment help to expand business system easily. “Since China Mobile has multiple locations in Nanjing and business data is increasing rapidly, we deployed independent backup node in each location. Thus to realize scalability of business system as well as offsite backup and recovery via a central managed Web Console.” Says Yuhang Q, Vinchin Support Director. “Multiple backup nodes deployment can split the overall computing and storage resources in backup server to realize a horizontal expansion of the resources. Also doing backup concurrently from multiple backup nodes can increase the network transmission bandwidth exponentially and make backup much faster.”
