Ford, Bacon, and Davis Entrusts Axcient for IT Resilience
Dean Butler is a veteran IT professional with more than 25 years of experience. Having owned his own IT service business before joining Ford, Bacon & Davis as Director of Information Technology, Butler has experienced firsthand how natural disasters like Katrina can literally destroy businesses. He knew his current company needed a true business recovery and continuity solution.
Enter Axcient. Its powerfully simple IT resilience solution, Fusion, has helped improve Ford, Bacon, & Davis’s IT resiliency through continuous, reliable data and application protection. And Butler can now sleep at night.
The company relied on CommVault’s Simpana product for local backup of data, which lacked a true disaster recovery capability. Without being able to quickly recover data, nor pull it from offsite, the firm left itself exposed to risk.
After a thorough search of different solutions, Butler found Axcient and put it to the test. Deployment ended up being painless and quick.
“The key benefit for us is faster data recovery,” explains Butler. “We now have a true disaster recovery solution, and our data resides in the Axcient cloud. This is exactly what I was looking for — a secure, holistic, cloud-based solution that protects our main office, remote offices, and basically our entire IT environment.”
