SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan 31, 2011 –(BUSINESS WIRE)– i365, Inc., A Seagate Company (NASDAQ: STX | PowerRating), today announced that Aldrich Bonnefin & Moore (AB&M), an Orange County-based law firm specializing in legal, security, and compliance issues for banks, credit unions, savings associations and money service businesses, has adopted EVault(R) Remote Disaster Recovery Service (RDR) for cloud-based protection of the firm’s vital systems and data. More information about the EVault RDR Cloud-based managed DR service can be found at booth 2114 at the LegalTech trade show, starting today, at the Hilton New York Hotel, New York, NY.
AB&M currently maintains 125GB of sensitive, central data via five Microsoft(R) Windows(R) servers, which the law firm had been protecting with EVault SaaS, an online backup and recovery solution from i365. While pleased with existing EVault SaaS capabilities, Susie Edberg, AB&M’s IT Manager, knew the firm would be vulnerable in the event a site-wide disaster impacted its servers. By complementing the immediate protection of EVault SaaS onsite restores with remote location and instant availability in the wake of a disaster, EVault Remote Disaster Recovery Service ensures that AB&M will be back online within a defined 24 or 48-hour recovery time objective (RTO).
“i365′s EVault Remote Disaster Recovery Service was an obvious progression from our long-time use of an online backup solution, EVault SaaS,” said Edberg. “By combining the two solutions from i365, our cost remained low and within our modest IT budget. Considering the costs of our systems being down for 24 to 48 hours, implementing EVault RDR was a logical choice.”
Disaster recovery and business continuity continue to be key IT considerations for businesses of all sizes. From an independent Forrester Research, Inc., report titled, “Business Continuity And Disaster Recovery Are Top IT Priorities For 2010 And 2011,” published September 2, 2010, “According to Forrester’s recent survey of 2,803 IT decision-makers, improving their business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) capabilities is the No. 1 priority for SMBs and the second highest priority for enterprises for the next 12 months.”
AB&M’s 24-hour RTO was tested when a complex-wide power outage struck immediately after EVault Remote Disaster Recovery Service was implemented. Without power, AB&M’s employees were unable to access important systems and client data. After declaring a disaster to i365 on a Friday afternoon, AB&M relied on rapid remote access to state-of-the-art EVault data centers to access an online copy of its critical data and applications. The dedicated EVault support staff had AB&M’s virtual systems up and running within 10 hours–ready for business opening the following Monday.
“Aldrich Bonnefin & Moore is representative of the growing small and medium business use case for Cloud-based DR services,” said George Hoenig, vice president, product operations, at i365. “By easily folding its new EVault RDR services into its existing EVault SaaS service, AB&M avoided having to build its own redundant, offsite data infrastructure while ensuring that a 24-hour accessible team of experts is constantly on-call and ready to bring AB&M back online. Companies like AB&M recognize the exceptional benefits of relying on a single, comprehensive data protection platform for what continues to be a crucial facet in any business’s IT strategy.”
