State Governor’s Office Ensures Reliable Backup in Case of Disaster

Paragon Backup Software for Disaster RecoveryBy Tom Fedro

After Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf State region of the U.S. in 2005, IT departments in states based in the southern part of the U.S. became particularly sensitive to the potential loss of their critical data.

When the director of technical services started his new position in the govenor’s, one of the first tasks was to replace the old tape backup system with a more reliable, and cost-effective, image-based backup solution. After a lengthy and comprehensive evaluation process Paragon Software’s Hard Disk Manager (HDM) Server was selected to ensure that their files were safe in case disaster strikes.

Not long after the selection was made the office had its first test of the new backup system. Their RAID controller and the backplane on one of their servers failed, thankfully Paragon’s HDM solution rose to the challenge and not only ensured there was no data lost, but also had the office back up and running in record time. To read the case study in its entirety along with others, search by product or by market.
