A VAR Upgrades From Selling Tape Backup To True BDRSource: Axcient
Prior to Axcient, InPursuit Solutions had relied on a local tape and disk backup recovery system. The problem was that the process was tedious and had mixed results. Tapes were often damaged and the disks were prone to breaking which left their clients' data and business at risk.

Sean McLean, IT Director at InPursuit Solutions, understood the various types of solutions available to small businesses and knew that an Internet or "Cloud" based solution was not the answer. McLean discovered that though backups to the Cloud didn't cause too many issues, the problem was the length of time needed for even rudimentary fle recovery. He wanted a turnkey on-site data backup and replication management appliance that also included automatic and transparent off-site cloud-based storage and services. "With Axcient, we can backup all of our data locally at gigabyte speed and supplement that with Axcient's off-site service for disaster recovery purposes at our leisure," McLean said.
