Special Olympics Upgrades to Cloud Backup

Posted by Zaid Rasid in Cloud Backup

Charitable organisation Special Olympics in Ireland recently selected Another 9’s cloud backup service powered by Asigra to A9 Logo replace its tape backup system. Having experienced data retention, recoverability and data security challenges that resulted in a lack of compliance with the Irish Data Protection Requirements, the Special Olympics decided to upgrade to Another 9’s service.

The organisation was a long-time user of a legacy tape-based backup solution to protect the data at its Irish branch, headquarted in Dublin. In 2012, the group began to question the ability of tape to effectively meet its backup and recovery needs. After considering multiple cloud-based data recovery technology, the organization decided to upgrade from its legacy solution to public cloud deployment using Another 9’s cloud backup service powered by Asigra.

Special Olympics Upgrades to Cloud-Based Solution for Advantages in Data Retention and Recovery over Tape Backup

“We were unhappy with slow, tape-based recovery, which was falling short on several fronts,” said Niall Callahan, IT Manager, Special Olympics (Irish branch). “As a public charity-based organisation, we need our data to remain both securely stored and accessible over extended periods of time to meet compliance mandates. The only option that made sense was upgrading to public cloud backup which improved our local and remote recovery capabilities to meet operational objectives.”
