“When it comes to disaster recovery, Unitrends is the center of our universe.”

Unitrends, the leading provider in integrated and scalable backup, archive, and disaster recovery solutions, today announced that Blue Ridge School District has replaced Backup Exec with Unitrends enterprise-level backup, archive, and recovery solution.

Within the last year, Blue Ridge School District converted its backup solution to Unitrends after Backup Exec caused major setbacks for the schools’ IT infrastructure. Blue Ridge’s IT staff stated that Backup Exec was causing too many crashes without the capability to protect systems with an affordable and reliable bare metal backup and that, in general, recovery was a hit or miss prospect.

“When we were using Backup Exec’s tape solution, the network was so slow that I would come to work in the morning to see that the active directory servers were still being backed up from the previous day,” Mike Stewart, Assistant Director of Information Systems, Blue Ridge School District, said. “I’ve never seen that with Unitrends; they outperform Backup Exec 100-to-1.”

“We’re always excited when we can go into our customer’s environments and improve their overall system and data protection,” said Mark Campbell, Chief Operating Officer, Unitrends. “We’re pleased that our new backup, archiving, and disaster recovery appliance family is being so well received,” added Campbell.

The school district uses Unitrends’ all-in-one solution to protect its entire IT infrastructure, consisting of its cafeteria point of sale, student information and transportation systems, along with health records, Exchange servers, web filter, and administrator, teacher and student network storage.

“The backups are so fast, and there has not been one thing I’ve wanted our system to do since we purchased it that it can’t,” Stewart remarked. “When it comes to disaster recovery, Unitrends is the center of our universe.”
