Case Study: Pyramid8 Finds Cloud-Based Backup Solution Comes Through after Building Collapse

Posted by Samantha Chiu

Pyramid8, a recruitment consultancy had historically relied on tape-based backup to protect data across the entire organization.Pyramid8 As the company experienced rapid expansion, the manual process of keeping up with the expanding storage requirements became difficult to manage. With increasing headaches involved in managing this data influx rose, it became clear that manual tape backup—with no offsite solution and no plan for data recovery—was becoming too risky, inefficient, and cost-prohibitive. These factors led Pyramid8 to seek a more reliable and economical backup and recovery system—one that the firm could call upon for speedy data restoration in the face of a major disaster. Pyramid8 had no difficulty in selecting Clovertec’s solution powered by Asigra as they were impressed immediately and did not feel the need to further investigate competitive options.

By offering dramatically faster and more reliable backups and recoveries, the new solution from Clovertec powered by Asigra offered significant advantages:

  • Cloud-based offsite backup for disaster recovery
  • Device agnostic support for a wide range of computing devices including laptops
  • Simple, centralized backup that eliminates the need for multiple-point solutions
  • Highly scalable design that expands as the company’s needs require
  • Ability to reduce the cost of backup using Asigra’s policy-based Backup Lifecycle Management (BLM) function which stores less critical data on archival storage platforms
  • NIST FIPS 140-2 certified security with AES-256 encryption in-flight and at-rest

“Like many data-intensive companies in a continuous growth phase, Pyramid8 had understandable concerns about needing an offsite solution for backup, as well as a reliable solution for data recovery. Finding the right solution and company to partner with was key to resolving those issues”, says Andrew Willsher, Director of Finance and Operations at Pyramid8. He also mentions with excitement “Clovertec is a trusted IT Provider who has become an extension of our team, easing our minds about our data security.”
