CoreLogic rides property boom into the cloud, declares death to tape by 2018

Australia’s largest real estate data & analytics provider speeds innovation to serve customers
CoreLogic readies 40-year-old database for cloud to capture real estate wave
Commvault de-duplication cuts up to 92% of data from petabyte daily backup

BENGALURU – NEW DELHI, India / SINGAPORE – March 1, 2017 Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced it is supporting Australia’s biggest property data provider to become free from tape backups by 2018 while transforming its customer’s digital business model into the cloud.
Formerly RP Data, CoreLogic is the leading property and data analytics provider in Australia and New Zealand with 11,000 customers and 120,000 end users. Over the course of Australia’s property boom, CoreLogic urgently needed a transformation to effectively manage 600 data sources and a petabyte of data produced by customers each day, which threatened its 40-year-old data infrastructure.

“Data is our lifeblood. Without our data – and strategies to protect it – we fundamentally have no business and are unable to provide the accurate insights our customers expect,” says Adrian Jansz, Head of ICT for CoreLogic. “Since the property boom, our data has grown exponentially every year. As a result, we knew we had to come up with effective ways to back up data and re-use it – something that had become both critical and difficult.”

CoreLogic turned to Commvault to help in its business model transformation, cut innovation cycle times, and deliver actionable business insights to customers through new products and services. Leveraging Commvault Software, CoreLogic is on track to be free from tape backups globally by 2018, and will use its cloud services to cost-effectively speed the release of new products and innovations.

Partnering with Queensland-based Venn IT Solutions, the CoreLogic disaster recovery strategy will be provided as a service on Commvault’s data platform, releasing resources into higher-value areas of its customer’s business and accelerate the shift from rigid tape backups to more agile processes.
“We no longer require tape or offsite storage. It’s not just our servers and platforms, but also our desktops and laptops being backed-up to cloud,” says Jansz. “Our backup engineers are highly skilled, as a result we were fortunate to leverage and re-skill them to gained greater velocity through product releases and improved IT security. Our backup strategy is critical to our business, as it allows us to focus on other areas that provide more value for customers.”

By shifting to the cloud and digital business models, CoreLogic will cut its innovation cycle time to capitalise on opportunities in Australia’s expanding property market and provide customers with superior experiences.

“Commvault prides itself on helping organisations accelerate their business transformation while protecting their precious intellectual property,” says Dan Kieran, Vice President and Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Commvault.

“While there are a range of solutions in the market to help manage and back up data, our software provides a converged solution that takes customers all the way from data protection to accessing backed up data at a granular level, to peer inside of it and activate its value even while it’s at rest. This delivers huge productivity gains, and makes customers more agile and better able to anticipate hyper-fast market conditions.”
