Ford, Bacon & Davis Turns to Axcient to Mitigate Risk, Ensure Business Continuity
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 business recovery cloud 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. Axcient also helped Butler migrate his physical servers to a virtual environment, speeding data recovery processes.
“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.”
