Avnet Recognized By CIO Magazine As A CIO 100 Award Winner

Global technology distributor Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT) today announced that it was named to the 2014 CIO 100, which is developed by IDG’s CIO magazine. The 27th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT). CIO selected Avnet as one of the recipients for this award based on the company’s continued development of its data storage management system, which significantly reduced backup and recovery times and improved business continuity capabilities for its main North American data center.

“Avnet manages more than 1.5 petabytes of business-critical data, and our IT team recognized that an innovative approach was needed to ensure the highest levels of business continuity,” said Steve Phillips, senior vice president and CIO, Avnet, Inc. “By leveraging new technologies to enhance our award-winning data storage management system, our team was able to effectively incorporate enhanced business continuity capabilities that will continue to meet our data storage needs for years to come. I applaud our IT team for their commitment to this project over the past two years, and their efforts in helping Avnet to mitigate risks.”

The amount of data Avnet stores in its data center more than quadrupled in the past four years. To manage this growth, Avnet implemented an extensive storage infrastructure to house its business-critical data while revolutionizing its data backup environment and processes. The new system marked the first time that Avnet implemented data deduplication across its entire server environment. Additionally, Avnet was among the first companies to leverage EMC’s Data Domain Boost in an Oracle environment, which accelerated backups while minimizing network impact. The two-year initiative substantially improved Avnet’s risk management, business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities by accelerating the data backup and recovery process, enhancing the virtual tape backup environment, and improving the productivity of Avnet’s IT team.
