Avmax Backups Gain Stability with ExaGrid-Veeam Solution
Avmax is all about simplifying their customer’s aviation needs with trusted results. They take this same approach within their IT department. Avmax’s IT team had been using a legacy backup application, Quest Rapid Recovery, and backing up its data to servers and disk, which resulted in a long backup window and also capacity issues as data grew. Avmax needed a next-generation backup storage solution that was reliable, easy to manage, and scalable. They also wanted to secure a disaster recovery plan and protection against ransomware.
After looking at a couple other solutions on the market, including Dell EMC Data Domain, the IT team at Avmax chose a ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage due to its integration with Veeam.
“Building up our disaster recovery plan was critical. Transport Canada has requirements regarding our retention policy – weekly backups, twelve monthly backups, and then an annual that we keep for seven years,” said Mitchell Haberl, system administrator at Avmax. “Stability is the biggest win for us. Switching from something that was borderline unusable to ExaGrid is a massively positive change for our team.”
The ExaGrid system is easy to install and use and works seamlessly with the industry’s leading backup applications so that an organization can retain its investment in its existing backup applications and processes.
