INDEPENDENCE, Ohio – September 19, 2013 — / — United Computer Group, Inc. (UCG), an information technology services firm, has been selected to provide appliance to cloud backup for SMWD’s IBM iSeries Server.

SMWD is the second largest retail water agency in Orange County, California and serves more than 155,000 residents and businesses in Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Maragarita, Coto de Caza, Las Flores, Ladera Ranch and Talega.

As an integral part of the water supply chain in Southern California, SMWD provides customers with quality water and wastewater service – maximizing human, environmental, and financial resources – to help guide South Orange County’s water and wastewater services to the next century.

SWMD management was looking for options to replace tape backups and after reviewing several options, moved forward with a local appliance and cloud backup provided by UCG’s VAULT400. Daily backups are retained locally for seven days, and replicated for several weeks, months and years to UCG’s VAULT400 cloud. In addition, SMWD selected a remote hardware DR option. In the event of a disaster, UCG provides a turn-key remote IBM iSeries DR. SMWD simply inputs their encryption key to obtain third party license keys. UCG executes the 50-page DR in < 24 hours and provides remote VPN access. The data is encrypted at all times at the UCG SAS70 compliant data center in Ohio.
