Case Study: Backup and Disaster Recovery Implementation
Miles Technologies works with an event services company to implement a secure backup and disaster recovery system.
An Event Services Company
The client is an award-winning event design and décor company that relies on technology for sales, accounting, and operations. With varying technologies implemented to service the organization’s overall needs, a centralized on-premise file/print server infrastructure is used for end user security through Microsoft’s Active Directory.
Making Backups More Secure
The client’s local backup system, while image based, required a manual process to ensure backup data would be cycled and maintained offsite in the event of a disaster. This resulted in an immense level of responsibility placed on an internal employee to ensure that external hard drives were swapped and taken off site during scheduled intervals.
Simplifying the Backup Process
The main requirement for the client was to remove the burden of creating backups by automating the entire process.
Analyzing the Current Process
Our goal was to remove the client’s inefficient manual backup process and replace it with an automated and secure system. To do so, the client would need a new system that would automate local and offsite backup replication with end-to-end encryption.
Miles Technologies offers a powerful backup and disaster recovery service called the Miles Backup Disaster Recovery Plan (MiBuDR). Through this plan, we would provide the client with an advanced local backup storage server and 24/7 IT support.
Implementing the Miles Backup Disaster Recovery Plan
We preconfigured the MiBuDR Backup Appliance remotely in order to speed up the onsite installation later on.
We physically installed the new backup server at the customer’s location during off hours to avoid any interruption to their primary business processes.
Once the system was in place, we uninstalled any conflicting backup software and installed the MiBuDR backup software on the server.
After completing the implementation, backups were scheduled to run every hour during business hours. We then provided additional backup verification and testing to ensure the system was functioning properly.
Secure Backup and IT Support
With the implementation of MiBuDR coupled with our experienced IT support team, the client now has best-in-class backup and disaster recovery services.
The client no longer has to dedicate time towards backups. Miles now handles all of the client’s backup and data recovery needs.
The Miles responsive IT support team is available at all times to assist the client with issues and emergencies.
The new system provides additional layers of security for data protection such as local and end-to-end encryption.
The client was able to optimize their recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) as part of their backup strategy. They also gained back additional productivity from the employee who was previously responsible for the organization’s offsite backups.
