De Goudse has selected HubStor to simplify data management and leverage Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure
De Goudse, a leading Dutch provider of a wide range of financial products and life, health, travel, expatriate, and disability insurance, recently selected HubStor to transform its data storage and protection with Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure. De Goudse was founded in 1924 and is based in Gouda, the Netherlands.

De Goudse is leveraging the cloud to help simplify IT operations and streamline data management.

De Goudse’s IT team began testing HubStor earlier in 2018. After several months of evaluating their use cases on the platform, the evaluation team at De Goudse has chosen HubStor for their cloud data management needs.

“Data is central to our business, as is placing a high degree of importance on finding the best solution that aligns with our IT objectives for the cloud, and our data protection requirements such as data residency, data ownership, and security,” said Gerrit den Hoed, the Infrastructure Architect at De Goudse. “The HubStor platform simplifies our adoption of Microsoft Azure for protection of our unstructured data, while adding a data management and security layer to the cloud which functions conveniently as Software-as-a-Service.”

With the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), De Goudse also optimized their data management capabilities to meet new data privacy requirements with the use of HubStor. All data is identifiable, and analysis and search tools will help the privileged users at De Goudse to isolate relevant datasets, place them on hold, produce them, or delete them in a defensible manner.

Using HubStor, De Goudse is realizing the following benefits:
  • A reduced storage footprint by 50 percent with inline deduplication and compression. 
  • Simplified data discovery and analysis with content indexing, PII detection, and discovery cases. 
  • Enhanced data protection with erasure coding, geo-redundant storage, inline data integrity checking, and end-to-end encryption. 
  • Optimized data mobility with the ability to use Windows as the presentation layer anywhere for managed datasets in Azure Blob Storage accounts managed by HubStor.
