Palladio Leasing, a successful leasing firm with multiple branches in Northern Italy, was experiencing ongoing difficulties when backing up to tape from their iSeries. Along with the manual process involved with tape, their twice daily backups often left them unable to get to their critical data when needed.
After searching for a solution that would enable them to access their files at all times, they selected LaserVault Backup (LVB). A TCP/IP connected backup solution, LVB uses commands similar to existing tape backup commands making it an easy solution to replace tape.
Alessandro Radin, IT Director for Palladio, states:
“We use LaserVault Backup with our EMC2 deduplication system. Now we can quickly get copies of all of our important iSeries data whenever we need to, even while the daily full backup is being done to tape.”
Palladio now has quick and easy access to their data. According to Alessandro:
“LaserVault Backup is a good product and the technical support has been excellent when needed. We are very pleased with this solution and highly recommend it.”
