European airline Flybe has expanded its virtualised IT infrastructure with new data back-up and replication systems. The airline has implemented Veeam Software's Backup & Replication v5 to support its main public facing transactional website and other operations. Veeam's software is also being used to protect Flybe virtual machines housing internal applications such as email and digital maintenance manuals for the airline's aircraft.
James Richards, virtualisation and server specialist at Flybe, said: “Any disruption to our website represents a potential loss of revenue, and at the same time we cannot afford disruption to our internal infrastructure. "The move to virtualisation was already improving the efficiency of our underlying infrastructure, and with Veeam we now have greater confidence in the reliability of our virtual estate."
