Bill Slaughter IT Architect, Tupperware Brands Corporation

While the word “Tupperware” might naturally bring to mind one of the company's popular air and liquid tight plastic food containers, Tupperware Brands Corporation has evolved significantly since it's early start in the post-World War II boom. Today, the Orlando- based company boasts an independent sales force of 2.3 million who now offer products from multiple consumer categories, including kitchen preparation, storage and serving as well as beauty and personal care. Recently recognized by Fortune and Forbes magazines as one of the world's most admired companies and one of America's best big companies, Tupperware remains true to its early roots of consumer value, innovation, reuse and sustainability.

Overseeing the backup needs of Tupperware's growing data center environment, IT Architect Bill Slaughter had evolved the company's Orlando data center to incorporate two Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) servers. The servers are responsible for backing up over 130 Microsoft Windows and Linux servers.

Mr. Slaughter also opted to round out his tiered backup architecture with a large tape library equipped with 16 LTO 2 tape drives. The tape library stores all backup data, plus deep archival storage. It also houses less- compressible weekly server OS image backups and monthly system backups compressed into ISO format. Backup tapes from the library were also routinely transported via Iron Mountain to Tupperware's Orlando data center.
