St. Louis Blues Disaster Recovery Case Study
When Larry Womack joined the St. Louis Blues National Hockey League team as IT manager at the beginning of 2013, he began to look for an alternative solution for backing up 12 servers and upwards of 9 terabytes of data. His goal was to find an enterprise grade solution that was appropriate for the needs of a prominent organization like the St. Louis Blues. The following Disaster Recovery Case Study explains how Axcient prevented a major disaster for the Blues.
Womack quickly explored his options and selected Axcient’s onsite back-up solution because of its attractive price point and the ease with which the organization’s data could be backed up. It didn’t take long for that decision to pay off, when a couple of weeks later the team’s file server, which held irreplaceable historical photos and data, as well as organizational and financial information, crashed. Within an hour, the Axcient solution enabled Womack to fully restore the Blues’ data with employees barely taking notice of what could have been a disastrous event.
