We are thrilled with our latest upgrade, as well as the support we received.

Unitrends, the leading provider in integrated and scalable backup solutions, today announced that Rappahannock General Hospital terminated its use of Backup Exec and ARCserve in favor of Unitrends backup appliances for an instant improvement in backup, archiving and disaster recovery usability, reliability and performance.

Prior to deploying Unitrends’ solution, Virginia’s Rappahannock General Hospital had two tape-based backup software products, Backup Exec and ARCserve, which were necessary to protect their single information technology infrastructure. “The two backup software products were very confusing to use and were not helping me do my job in securing data,” David Glosser, IS Engineer, Rappahannock General Hospital, said.

The backup software products were failing to protect RGH’s mission-critical information technology infrastructure, which were responsible for protecting a growing amount of critical data from foundation and engineering software to physician practices and hospital information systems.

Rather than continuing to invest staff labor to resolve recurring issues with the tape solutions, RGH opted out of their Backup Exec and ARCserve licenses and replaced these backup software products with the Unitrends Recovery series backup appliances. Once implemented, Unitrends showed an immediate positive impact, dramatically lowering total cost of ownership and considerably increasing its return on investment.

Unitrends solution requires just one source for data protection to create an easy-to-manage backup and recovery process, and is the simple solution for quick, easy and reliable data protection that does not interfere with network or system performance.

“Unitrends gave us all the tools to manage and feel secure about our data backup needs,” Glosser said. “We are thrilled with our latest upgrade, as well as the support we received.”

“Healthcare is an important part of our business at Unitrends, and one in which we’ve been growing as more buyers realize the advantages of our backup solutions versus the operational and capital expenditure required for stand-alone backup software,” Mike Coney, Chief Executive Officer, Unitrends, said. “Hospitals in particular just don’t have the time or staff to invest in integrating, managing, and monitoring disparate backup software point products.”
