Vinchin consolidates large-size data center security for Guodian Technology & Environmental Group
Dedicated in a variety of new energy businesses including solar energy, wind power equipment manufacturing, biomass power generation, etc., a large amount of data generated per day is saved in different service systems in the data center of Guodian Technology & Environmental Group, which becomes a huge barrier for them to deploy data protection with traditional agent-based backup solutions.

Vinchin brought an automated agentless backup solution with flexible scheduling strategies to facilitate the whole backup deployment and utilization process and reduce the manual backup job management workload for Guodian Technology & Environmental Group.
We deeply understand the importance of high-level informatization as one of the decisive factors to make a future-proof company, and that’s why we’ve been searching for a powerful data protection solution to help us facilitate our data center infrastructure. As soon as we tested Vinchin Backup & Recovery, we had made a consensus that this is the right choice for our large virtual environment, since its high performance on automated backup with much flexibility works to simplify the whole situation. We can now work free-minded to provide better new-energy services to our customers.
Mr. Zhang, IT Administrator
Guodian Technology & Environmental Group Co., Ltd.
Guodian Technology & Environmental Group Co., Ltd. was established in 2004 as a high-tech enterprise belongs to China Guodian Corporation, which wins a reputation for being one of the world's top 500 new energy companies for eight consecutive years and ranking 82nd in 2019. Bearing company responsibility in mind, the group now has also developed to become China's largest energy-saving service provider for coal-fired power plants as well as a leading system service provider and equipment manufacturer in renewable resources industry. With several national-level scientific research platforms and post-doctoral/academician expert scientific research workstations involved, the group has been contributing to the research fields of environmental protection, energy-saving, new energy and informalization, and hold a large number of independent intellectual property rights technology including many of which keep ahead global wide.
Dedicated in a variety of new energy businesses including solar energy, wind power equipment manufacturing, biomass power generation, etc., a large amount of data generated per day is saved in different service systems in the data center of Guodian Technology & Environmental Group. “These service systems running in a large-scale virtualized environment are difficult for us to deploy centralized data protection management. Since traditional backup solutions all require an agent installed inside each VM, this method will not only take up a large amount of storage space, but also weaken the performance of service systems.” Said Mr. Zhang.
In view of the actual situation of Guodian Technology & Environmental Group Co., Ltd., Vinchin Backup & Recovery provides an agentless backup solution for them to simply achieve backup in large virtualization environment. Requiring no agent inside each VM, the software works to solve the their most considered issues about high management cost and weak software compatibility of traditional backup solutions. “When using Vinchin for backups, there is no need to install additional software inside every virtual machine in the data center anymore, and it helps to reduce our daily operation and maintenance costs by dozens or even hundreds of times, our backup scheduling work can’t never be more simple, Vinchin is just like a breath of a fresh air for our IT operation.” Said Mr. Zhang.
And for the various service systems running in the production environment, Vinchin Backup & Recovery brings flexible backup scheduling performance to fit different business data saving needs for different systems. “Vinchin enables us to access full, incremental and differential backup methods freely combined with flexible on-demand scheduling options including once-off and roll backup mode, which raises the value of each backup deployment on different VM effectively. Based on 100% automated backup process, we can still be informed of every little detail of errors once a backup job fails in time through its email notification, eliminating our manual workload to monitor the whole backup environment during night.” Said Mr. Zhang.
“After testing several traditional backup solutions, I’m glad we’ve eventually found Vinchin as the most reliable data protection partner. Without much extra manual maintenance and monitoring workload needed, backups can process completely in an automatic way, while the centralized web console enables us to realize easy management, giving us ease of mind to better carry forward our regular services. With the help of Vinchin, we no longer have to worry about data security issues for every little piece of data is under its guaranteed protection.” Said Mr. Zhang.
