Redstor’s cloud backup and disaster recovery services have provided the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) with a reliable backup system to ensure its mission-critical data is kept safe
JOHANNESBURG, SA – 10 March 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — The Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) has been using the Redstor Backup Pro solution as the means to protect its important data spanning several servers. Now in its fourth year of implementation, the testing and reporting functionality of Redstor has empowered the QCTO to maintain its focus on operations while its backup and storage needs are taken care of.
About the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO)
The QCTO is one of three Quality Councils responsible for a part of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Collectively, the Quality Councils and the South African Qualifications Authority work for the good of both learners and employers. Additionally, it provides guidance to service providers who must be accredited by the QCTO to offer occupational qualifications.
“We were very worried what would happen in the event of a data loss or failure,” says Tafadzwa Ramhewa, director of IT at the QCTO.
Its service provider suggested implementing Attix5 Backup Pro (which was subsequently acquired in 2015 by Redstor) as a viable backup and storage solution to meet its business requirements.
The council implemented Redstor on eight servers. This, in turn, would see backups run locally to a network device that would be mirrored offsite using Redstor.
With Redstor, the QCTO has been able to automate its backups so there is less of an administrative burden to making sure it runs properly.
“Managing backups manually is just too time-intensive for the council. Thanks to Redstor, we have a streamlined solution in place that allows us to focus on our core business while our backup and storage needs are taken care of.”
Additionally, Redstor also provides the QCTO with quality reporting into the backup processes and highlights any potential problems.
“At a glance, we can refer to the e-mailed reports without needing to run the application. This gives us a good view of the progress of our backups and the state of our files. Redstor has also provided us with great support in terms of implementation, training, and any other questions we might have around the processes,” Tafadzwa concludes.
This experience, shaped by its community creates its world-class SW underpinning Redstor’s Cloud Data Management and Security Platform. Redstor’s platform addresses Backup, DR and Archiving and its journey towards security, access and insight, all managed and controlled from one place.
It has a face behind our cloud…. it prides itself on the fact that it is a company built, managed and optimised by people, for people and it gives its customers control over their most valuable asset…their data wherever, whenever, forever.
