Breaking news from ihotdesk, the home of IT outsourcing in London:
European branches of Californian surf brand O'Neill are making use of deduplication storage systems in an attempt to streamline its backup and restore processes.

European branches of Californian surf brand O'Neill are making use of deduplication storage systems in an attempt to streamline its backup and restore processes.

The move comes in response to expansion plans by the company's new Dutch owners and to address the need to speed up and improve the reliability of data restore features and disaster recovery strategy, reports IT Pro.

According to the technology news provider, Peter Maljaars, O'Neill's Europe global IT service and infrastructure manager, said: "It became clear to us that our tape systems were rapidly running out of gas.

"We wanted to re-invent our data protection systems and take a more global approach."

He added that the company can now store and backup more information with less hardware and easily check whether data is available for quick restores.

The news follows reports in Consultant Week that the IT outsourcing industry this year saw a year-over-year increase of nearly 20 per cent in annualised contract value compared with 2007.

Figures released by TPI indicated that the industry is gathering positive momentum in 2008.
