The challenge

Their legacy data protection solution was both slow and costly. Incremental backups to tape for physical servers and the Microsoft Hyper-V environment took 10 hours per night to complete. Recovery of a single file took hours.

The solution

United Way of Pierce County worked with global nonprofit TechSoup to deploy Veritas Backup Exec™ to protect approximately 700 GB of organizational data, through primary backups to disk and secondary backups to tape.

The outcome

Now, data protection for the nonprofit is both affordable and much more efficient.
