Aegon

Who

Aegon is one of the world’s leading providers of life insurance, pensions and asset management. Our Dutch roots date back 175 years. Today, we have operations in over 20 countries, including the USA where we’re known as Transamerica. Aegon operates in over 20 countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Before

At Aegon Poland, reliability is very important to us. Both in the business context and when choosing the right software.

That is why we built a few of our virtual environments based on Red Hat’s open source solutions. To be honest, there were (and still are not) many companies on the market that create dedicated solutions for RHV. vProtect had a significant advantage at the start because it was a so-called “Certified Third-party Online Backup Solution” for RHV.

In addition, he offered a number of features that really met our needs. At the moment in our data center, vProtect is responsible for supporting several virtual hosts.

After

vProtect offers all the necessary functionalities that allow us to efficiently secure our virtual environments. And for our company, we use Enterprise-class backup destinations.

The high level of technical support (fast, professional, customer-oriented) and the location in Poland are also significant.

The intuitive GUI interface, extensive CLI, clear documentation are another valuable functionality that improves platform management. What’s more, there’s always an option to suggest custom features to the vProtect development roadmap.

It is worth emphasizing that this Polish solution supports many open and commercial hypervisors, without the need to buy additional licenses. Therefore, the user can freely change the virtual environment using the same backup solution.

If a company is looking for a reliable and easy-to-use solution to protect virtual environments based on Red Hat Virtualization, Storware vProtect is definitely a platform worth recommending.
