In an age of escalating events that threaten mission-critical business data, ContinuitySA’s fully managed services assist clients in understanding their risk profile and developing an appropriate risk-mitigation strategy to enhance business resilience, including Information and Communications Technology (ICT) resilience, enterprise risk management, work area recovery, and BCM advisory.
“We offer fully-managed solutions to our clients for protection of their environments. Using ExaGrid is pivotal in our offerings of backup-as-a-service and disaster-recovery-as-a-service,” said Bradley Janse van Rensburg, CTO of ContinuitySA. "We evaluated a number of virtualized backup solutions but weren't able to find one that offered the level of price-performance that would meet our clients' requirements until we looked at ExaGrid and were impressed with its performance and data deduplication. The system scales quite efficiently, and there are encrypted versions of its appliances at attractive price points. We converted from other technology to ExaGrid, and we’re happy we did.”
A growing number of ContinuitySA’s clients have switched to ExaGrid, most of whom are running Veeam as their backup application. “Over 90% of the workloads that we protect are virtual, so our main strategy is to use Veeam to back up to ExaGrid,” said Janse van Rensburg. “The ExaGrid-Veeam solution provides long-term retention for our clients through the deduplication capabilities of both products. Reliability and consistency of the solution are critical to us to ensure that we can quickly recover a client’s data if they experience an outage.”
ContinuitySA and its clients are pleased with the many improvements to their backup environment since adding ExaGrid, including:
- ExaGrid-Veeam data deduplication reduced storage consumption across the board.
- One client’s backup window was reduced from two days to one hour, and restoring a server took four hours instead of four days when using its previous backup solution.
- Despite a few ransomware attacks, backups remain uncompromised.
“There have been several ransomware attacks on client data, but our backups have been safe and uncrackable. We are always able to restore our clients’ data and save them from complete data loss or the need to pay ransomware funds. We have had zero data loss while using ExaGrid,” said Janse van Rensburg.
