We were hooked from the beginning

Unitrends, the leading provider of backup solutions for small-and medium-sized businesses, today announced that Coastal Carolina University has selected its backup appliances to protect the University’s entire information technology infrastructure.

Coastal Carolina uses Unitrends to protect the school’s entire network of vital operational and student information. Bob Full, Coastal Carolina’s IT manager, said he was sold on Unitrends immediately after the first demonstration.

“We were hooked from the beginning,” Full said. “When we viewed the Unitrends demo, we were most impressed with the tape backup converting to disk drive, as well as the transfer speeds and restoration.”

Coastal Carolina University, located in Myrtle Beach, has more than 8,300 students and 300 faculty members. Unitrends’ wide customer base of school districts and colleges nationwide proves reliable to schools desperately requiring protection of student information, grades, employee records, web data and financial transactions.

“Unitrends understands the need for every school to have a low hassle and low cost backup solution that protects not only data but their entire information technology infrastructure,” said Mark Campbell, Chief Operating Officer, Unitrends. “Unitrends provides Coastal Carolina with something they never had with a tape solution–reliable backup, archiving, and rapid recovery.”

Prior to using Unitrends, Coastal had to use multiple tape backup systems that weren’t compatible from one operating system to another. Unitrends provides the school with a single backup solution for a myriad of operating systems including Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), IBM pSeries/AIX, and Linux Slackware.
