Challenges

Taking backup tapes to an offsite disaster recovery location was time-consuming and a daily annoyance for Roosevelt Paper Company, a large paper distributor located in New Jersey. They wanted a way to backup their AS/400 to their DR site without having to physically transport tapes.

Solution

Concerned about finding a solution that would work with their AS/400 and NETAPP SAN, they chose LaserVault Backup. Explains Tim Horan, Director of Information Technology at Roosevelt:

“Getting data to our DR site without having to transport tapes is critical.  LaserVault works with our AS/400 and lets us eliminate the DR tapes, so it was a great solution for us to find.”

Summary

By using LaserVault Backup, the company no longer has to deal with transporting tapes to their offsite location, while they continue to use some tape onsite. Because LVB saves data in tape image format they can use both tape and LaserVault to meet their backup needs.  Tim states:

“I would recommend LaserVault Backup for any company that is using tape and is looking to improve their backup and DR process by using a combination of tape and disk to disk.”
