The challenge

Trimono used two different backup solutions for its seven systems. It achieved offsite disaster recovery for only one, though, in a process that involved physical transport of USB drives. RPO was one week, and RTO was multiple hours.

The solution

The company expanded its deployment of Veritas Backup Exec to encompass the mixed virtual and physical environment, and established automated and secure offsite backups to Amazon cloud storage using the Backup Exec cloud connector.

The outcome

Trimono worked with Veritas and Amazon Web Services to improve the efficiency of backup and recovery, and to accelerate data restores in the event of a disaster.
