Goodwill South Florida Protects its Data from Hurricane Threats with a Reliable Cloud Backup Service

How do you protect your data from the threat of Hurricanes and catastrophic weather threats? In the case of Goodwill SouthGoodwill Florida, after many years backing up their data using a tape-based solution, they learned the hard way that they would have to find a better, more secure solution. After much consultation and recommendations from colleagues, Goodwill Industries selected cloud backup and recovery services powered by Asigra from Yotta280. Now in its second year of use, the new backup infrastructure has proven to have many advantages over tape including local and remote data recovery capabilities, fast restores and more reliable operation.

You can learn in full detail about the Goodwill cloud backup implementation by reading our case study : Goodwill South Florida Defends Data Against the Future Threat of Hurricanes with Cloud-Based Data Recovery

Some of the key learning include:

  • How a serious malfunction in Goodwill’s tape backup solution caused tape media to pour across their datacenter floors
  • Why Goodwill chose Yotta280, and cloud backup services
  • How the Yotta280 solution protects over 9TB of data for over 30 Goodwill locations and over 300 connected devices

“The Yotta280 solution, powered by Asigra, allowed us to depart from the troublesome aspects of tape based data recovery. We no longer have to deal with offsite tape storage and management, especially during hurricane season. One of our ongoing concerns with tape was that if a storm were to hit, every building in the area would be affected, including the offsite storage vault holding our tapes. Because our data is now replicated over the WAN at data centers inside and outside of the state, we no longer have those concerns.”
