Reston, VA, United States, 2010/07/06 - AppAssure's Replay 4 software for Windows Server backup and disaster recovery helps Hamilton Port Authority keep their data secure ensuring disk-based continuous application protection for all servers.
AppAssure Software, Inc., a provider of innovative Windows Server backup and disaster recovery software, today announced that the Hamilton Port Authority (HPA) – one of the busiest of all the ports of Canada’s great lakes – relies on AppAssure’s Replay 4 backup and disaster recovery software to manage the logistics of shipping roughly 12 million metric tons of cargo over 700 vessels each year.
IT Administrators, Ross Englefield and Peter Hammerl are using AppAssure’s Replay 4 as the backup and disaster recovery solution for all of their servers in order to achieve an off-site replication and archive of all their server-based data and applications. Englefield and Hammerl support around 60 employees, many servers, and a network of 3 locations within the port, and everything is automated. They had to make sure that the complicated data management, traffic management and infrastructure met their post-911 security needs: that the data was secure and offsite.
As the HPA’s IT Administrators state, AppAssure came in at best price with all the features that they needed: backup and recovery, disaster recovery, and high availability. In addition, Englefield and Hammerl have relied on AppAssure’s support team for a smooth transition for their application recovery needs.
“We have around 60 employees, many servers, and a network of 3 locations within the port. Everything is automated: data management, traffic management and our infrastructure is made more complicated due to security needs post 9-11. So we have to make sure all the cameras and controls are all working correctly and make sure everything is running smoothly,” says Englefied. “AppAssure’s sales team is really good. They were a responsive team and eager to work together. It was nice to see that they were pretty laid back and not so pushy.”
“Replay is working great," Hammerl adds. "I’ve tested restoring files and databases, and everything has gone smoothly. The application is pretty granular so we can choose what to backup, at what time intervals, etc. We can get exactly what we want when we want it.”
“Support has been awesome! They are brilliant. You phone them up and they get back to you really quickly. They get things fixed.”
Replay 4 provides organizations worldwide with sophisticated backup and disaster recovery capabilities, including:
- Eliminates the backup window;
- Creates point-in-time images continuously;
- Reduces server down-time allowing users to access applications (including e-mail) during a live recovery;
