Atempo Protects Terabytes of Euro Satellite Data
Time Navigator Product Installed at EUSC in Madrid

Tthe European Union Satellite Center (EUSC) has chosen Atempo's Time Navigator as its data protection solution for terabytes of global  satellite, aerial images, and collateral data. Located in the outskirts of Madrid, Spain, the EUSC is responsible for strengthening the European Union's ability to gather geographical information used to help prevent conflicts, contribute to peacekeeping and deliver aid in cases of natural or human-caused disasters. Atempo is based in Palo Alto, CA and Paris.

As a function of the agency's mandate, the EUSC on a daily basis collects and uses an immense volume of mission-critical geographical data. Therefore, it is critical that the agency has a data protection solution capable of protecting and restoring data consisting of satellite and plane images and other reference materials. The EUSC chose Time Navigator to replace its existing Solstice based solution that was no longer up to the agency's stringent demands. The EUSC backs up an average of four terabytes of data every quarter. A full backup is conducted every two weeks and several incremental backups of 5 mn are executed daily. Most of data backed up are Tif, Jpeg, FrameMaker and StarOffice files.

"In 1993, a Spot satellite image was representing 50 megabytes, today it is approximately 700 megs to 1 gigabyte or more in size. Because we collect and analyze a tremendous number of images, it is essential that we have a high- performance data protection software solution that can also flawlessly operate in an heterogeneous and scalable environment," said Juan Giner, Head of Technical Division of the EUSC. "We have chosen Time Navigator because of its solid reputation as a high performance backup and restore technology, ease of use and best-of-class support."

The EUSC was recently involved in supporting the European response to the Tsunami disaster in Southeast Asia. When the EU wanted to airlift supplies to the afflicted region they relied on the EUSC's information for logistical support to decide where best to drop supplies and erect support camps. The EUSC 's repository of low, medium and high resolution satellite imagery was critical in providing fast and accurate information that enabled the EU's effective emergency response.
