"It was then that we realized we were also reducing the carbon footprint of many organizations throughout the world by reducing e-waste and giving this hardware a second chance.”

The latest BDR innovation from ARRC allows businesses to back up important business data to separate offsite, secure data storage facilities as well as use servers the company may already own. Recycling existing hardware can save businesses thousands of dollars while still securing their data and saves the environment from additional electronic waste.
ARRC’s BDR Solution ensures the maximum uptime and continuity of end users' business-critical infrastructures through real-time onsite data protection and fortified offsite backups. And, it works on hardware from providers such as Dell, HP, Lenovo and others, so businesses benefit by utilizing hardware they may already own. ARRC also monitors the successful back up of each BDR installed at a business location through a specially designed “portal” also invented by the company. This confirms the business data is being backed up successfully each day, sometimes every 15 minutes.
The original purpose of the BDR was to provide existing hardware a second life to reduce the costs for businesses implementing a backup solution. The side effect was also an immediate reduction in electronic waste and a better impact on the environment. The solution has since been embraced by ARRC’s sister company, CharTec, a national technology training and product company. The BDR solution is now deployed and accessible worldwide into countries such as Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
“We developed the BDR solution based on our own experiences as a technology provider,” said Alex Rogers, ARRC’s CEO. “We recognized how painful associated costs such as hardware, licensing, and support while performing back up requirements for our own clients, especially in this economic time. So, we built our own appliance that saves businesses the cost of replacing hardware and purchasing new licensing. It was then that we realized we were also reducing the carbon footprint of many organizations throughout the world by reducing e-waste and giving this hardware a second chance.”
ARRC estimates it has saved thousands of servers from hitting the dumpsters and landfills in 2012 alone, as well as improving business continuity and backing up important business data.
