Leading Outdoor Clothing Company 66°NORTH Overhauls its Data Backup Strategy

London, UK, 13th June 2012 — /BackupReview.info/ — 66°NORTH, one of Iceland’s oldest manufacturing companies and an expert in the production of outdoor clothing, has chosen Securstore, a leading Asigra partner, to protect its mission critical data. Established in 1926 and with a 200-strong workforce spread across 15 sites in Iceland, 66°NORTH needed a flexible, reliable cloud backup solution that could solve its data challenges. Securstore’s solution allows the company to protect its entire data footprint, including SQL databases, Exchange Mail servers and standard file servers.

Árni Egilsson, IT Manager at 66°NORTH, said: “We no longer have to hope our data is backed up, we know it is. Previously we used a tape system, but the work involved was laborious, time consuming and sometimes unreliable. When our tape library failed, we decided to move to the cloud. Securstore came highly recommended from other IT professionals and the service we have received has been excellent.”

Securstore Cloud Backup supports all IT configurations and 66°NORTH’s specific infrastructure includes VMware ESX servers running several dozen virtual servers, a SAN storage system, and more than 100 standard desktop machines across 15 sites. Due to Securstore Cloud Backup’s support for remote devices, 66°NORTH also plans to protect data residing on smartphones and laptops in the future.

66°NORTH also boasts full regulatory compliance due to Securstore’s stringent data security measures and auditing. With Securstore holding ISO 27001 accreditation and protecting data through 256 AES Encryption with FIPS 140-2 certification, 66°NORTH knows its data is protected remotely by professionals it can trust.

Árni Egilsson continued: “Our focus is on quality and we share this common vision with Securstore. We quickly realised Securstore had the solution for us – advanced technology based on award winning software from Asigra, a focus on quality and trust, systems that are easy to use and implement, and market leading support. At every point of the implementation process Securstore has been attentive and helpful.”

66°NORTH has always focused on improving its data sets and with Securstore’s unique two tier backup model and advanced deduplication techniques helping intelligently to compress the company’s data, data volumes have been significantly reduced. This in turn has decreased the load on local IT infrastructure and provided 66°NORTH further cost savings by ensuring duplicate data is not being backed up.
