Business Challenges: Company decides to look at moving backup offsite

For many years, American Polywater had relied on Dell SonicWALL CDP (continuous data protection) appliances to provide local data backup between the main site and a secondary location, which housed its production department.The two sites were just a few miles apart, and having a CDP in each location provided redundancy for the organization.However, after moving offices, the company brought both sites

Understandably, it was anxious that a disaster or catastrophe could wipe out the main site and the backup at the same time. Jerry Hanson, network operations manager at American Polywater explained: “If something catastrophic happened, we’d have been up a creek without a paddle.”

The company decided to look at moving backup offsite. It began searching for a reliable disaster recovery solution to protect its internal servers, which control key parts of the business, including the Goldmine contact management and Made to Manage ERP packages that run on American Polywater’s SQL Server databases.
