PFD Food Services picks Commvault to ensure cloud protection

Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT) said that Australian food distributor PFD Food Services is using Commvault to ensure the protection and high availability of its strategic data assets in its journey to the cloud.

To support business growth and respond to the changing demands of the industry, PFD sought to modernise its data management strategy and information infrastructure, ensuring speed and flexibility.

The modernisation of the food distributor´s data management strategy has coincided with the establishment of a second data centre, acting as a source for essential back-ups, decreasing the risk significantly. The data centre also operates as a corporate hot site, providing rapid up-to-the-minute failover if required.

Commvault´s exclusive single-platform architecture gives companies unprecedented control over data growth, costs and risk. Its corporate headquarters are located in Tinton Falls, New Jersey in the United States.

PFD Food Services has a rich and varied history, tracing its origins back to 1864 when the business sold fresh fish in Melbourne, Australia. It operates today as a fresh and frozen food distributor with USD1.5 billion turnover, 2,200 staff and over 65 sites across Australia.
