ExaGrid Case Study - Maharam Meets Data Retention Goals, Speeds Backup Times

Maharam’s IT staff had been backing up the firm’s data to disk but struggled with retention and restore issues. The company was only able to keep five daily backups, one weekly and one monthly backup on disk, so if a file needed to be restored that was over a week old, the staff had to retrieve the data from tape. And because the tapes were stored offsite, restoring data was often a labor-intensive, expensive proposition.
