Customer Challenges and Solution:
To address the organization’s rapid growth, Teach For America partnered with EMC to create an integrated backup and recovery solution that leveraged a range of EMC products, ensuring that backup windows and RTOs were met, automation would reduce staff time expended for backup and disaster recovery, and that the solution could scale to meet future demands of the organization.
