Lacrosse and Hockey Equipment Apparel and Promotional Company Relies on Unitrends for Rapid Recovery and Disaster Protection Solutions.

When the game starts, the players need to have their gear and uniforms, period

Unitrends, the leader in affordable, heterogeneous, vertically integrated, disk-based all-in-one data protection appliances, today announced that Warrigxdor Sports, consisting of Warrior Lacrosse and Warrior Hockey, which produces a full line of lacrosse and hockey equipment and apparel, assures data recovery and backup with Unitrends.

Founded in the mid-1990’s, Warrior Sports is widely recognized for its creative marketing and innovative promotion of lacrosse and hockey team sports. The Warren, Mich., business has a goal to promote the positive influence of lacrosse and hockey team sports on young players, helping them to develop healthy lifestyles and winning attitudes.

Warrior Sports was increasingly dependent on its ERP application and related SQL databases to manage day-to-day business operations. In the fast-moving world of sports equipment and apparel, there is no room for error or delays that would result from IT outages or disasters. With the move away from paper-based work processes, something as simple as a corrupted Microsoft Office file or deleted Excel spreadsheet could be the cause of needless missed deadlines or lost productivity.

Warrior Sports could not afford to slow its pace or deliver less than champion performance to its sports team customers, leading to the selection of the Unitrends backup appliance which was implemented initially in 2005 with a hardware refresh in 2009.

“When the game starts, the players need to have their gear and uniforms, period,” said Murugappan Periyakaruppan, Senior System Administrator, Warrior Sports. “Warrior Sports is now enjoying the simplicity of Unitrends’ all-in-one disk-to-disk backup solution, with a DPU 2000 appliance delivering the full suite of features. With Unitrends, Warrior Sports continues its winning streak, equipping and motivating generations of young lacrosse and hockey players to achieve their goals.”

“Unitrends is pleased to provide Warrior Sports with the data protection they need for their day-to-day data protection,” said Maria Ellison, senior vice president, support, Unitrends. “Over the years, Warrior Sports has recovered individual files numerous times, especially Excel spreadsheets. With Unitrends’Rapid Recovery Console it’s literally a matter of seconds, with just a few mouse clicks compared to the hours and potentially days to recover from tape backup. We are proud to provide solutions vital to the needs of Warrior Sports and their athletes.”
