ExaGrid Provider of Choice for RFI Communications Security Systems16 June 2012 18:13:00
RFI Communications & Security Systems has opted for ExaGrid in its quest to increase its data retention periods and reduce its backup windows.
The new solution reduced backup times from 24 to just eight hours and allowed the comms and security specialist to retain its backup data for up to six months as opposed to just 30 days - achieved across the company's four regional offices due to a new deduplication ratio of 63:1.
The previous data domain-based backup solution required physical upgrades and new disk shelves which impacted effective scalability.
"Unlike the Data Domain system, ExaGrid's solution gives us the ability to easily scale out the system up as our data grows. We liked the fact that the ExaGrid holds our most current data in a complete form for faster recovery", said Frank Jennings, Network Administrator at RFI.
