1. Automated backup to cloud storage
With BluVault, this institution has now simplified the backup and restore process for all departments. The IT team doesn’t need to depend on end-users for backups. They now use powerful backup policies from the Parablu console to tailor how backups should behave for different users and departments. They have gained confidence in the knowledge that their data is safely backed up in their OneDrive for Business accounts and is available for restores anytime. Even with ever-shortening backup windows, and ever-increasing data volumes, the institution now feels prepared for the future.
2. A single solution that eliminated several points of failure
With manual backups, the institution was relying completely on users, and portable storage tools like flash drives which were prone to theft, loss, physical damage, and corruption. With automated endpoint data backups, accompanied by advanced data security and protection features, they have now eliminated multiple points of failures that could put data availability and integrity at risk.
3. Lower implementation costs and higher flexibility
With the implementation of a modern data backup and recovery solution that offered centralized monitoring and administration features, this institute has drastically reduced their data management and protection costs. Not only did BluVault require ZERO investment in storage infrastructure, it also enabled smart delta-incremental backups, compression and at-source deduplication that further reduced costs related to network and storage capacity requirements.
4. Protection from external and internal threats
Apart from automated and comprehensive data backups, they now also have a mechanism in place that assures them of data immutability and protection from insider attacks and ransomware. With BluVault’s ability to do point-in-time restores, the institute can simply “roll back the clock” from before a ransomware attack and get their data back as it was.
5. World-class product support
Apart from the solution itself, this institution, like all other Parablu customers has the access to a world-class tech support team. The Parablu support team walked with them through the journey all the way from a product trial, through deployment, training, and is still available even for the smallest question the IT team may have.
