Backup Exec Replacement

This Sixth form college in South London & CD-DataHouse Limited had spoken regularly over a nine month period.

Symantec/Veritas Backup Exec had been in place for a number of years. Annual maintenance was becoming expensive and backup was slow.

CD-DataHouse Limited implemented a new VMware friendly backup solution that reduced backup windows to less than 1 Hour and increased the colleges confidence level in restoring from backups.

The overall cost of the new system (SW, HW and Install) with 3 Years support was less than Backup Execs maintenance costs.

I have the peace of mind of knowing the infrastructure and its data is constantly backed up and protected. This has saved the IT department a huge amount of time to focus on other tasks rather than troubleshooting backup errors. As a bonus it has provided us with free space for the growing data generated by more than 1700+ people relying on the IT system. Colleges not only have to protect their data but be able to quickly restore it in the event of data loss or corruption, which is exactly what this solution does.
