Data retrieved by Seagate Recovery Services
Domestic appliance manufacturer Morphy Richards had 138 PCs drowned in flash flooding in June, 2007. Within two hours its 21-acre site was under six feet of water. The company needed to get the data back from the PCs. Most of it had been backed up but some had not. (There’s a lesson here but we won’t go into it.)
Morphy Richards staff couldn’t just use one of the company’s own hair dryers. Such drying leaves a sticky residue on platters which causes head crashes. So it asked its local reseller, Q-tron, for help. It put Morphy Richards in touch with Seagate Recovery Services (SRS). As soon as the flood waters receded Morphy Richards staff recovered the affected hard drives and handed them over to SRS.
Chooses Spectra Logic tape library
Weill Cornell Medical College stores more than 30TB of data from files, server configurations and databases. Weill conducts nightly backups of more than 600 GB of data.
The college’s previous backup system was having performance issues, so they decided to research updated libraries to simplify and improve their backup process. Weill Cornell Medical College also wanted to add encryption functionality to help safeguard sensitive patient data and comply with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations.
After tape backup failed Asigra’s online backup delivered the goods
Accountancy firm A. Desaur & Co. of Hampton, Middlesex, England, has not been lucky. In April last year a server failure and resulting backup problem resulted in 20 percent of its data becoming lost. An accountancy firm has huge amounts of detailed historical information about its clients. Such a loss was devastating.
The firm, with IT supplied by Qualitas-IT, changed to an Asigra online backup product. In October last year a Windows update to a serbver went wrong and the server crashed. Oops! It nearly lost its data again. Fortunately the Asigra product did its stuff and the data was recoverable.
