Desert Schools FCU Adds i365's EVault Backup System
PHOENIX – Desert Schools FCU has contracted with i365 for the company’s EVault Plug-n-Protect backup and recovery appliances via solution provider 3RP.
The $3 billion credit union serves three of Arizona’s largest counties and has 392 servers running VMware, Windows and IBM operating systems, as well as a variety of other financial applications working concurrently. Prior to adopting EVault, the credit union was reliant on tape backup and third party encryption technologies to cover nearly 12TB of confidential financial data.
The company said the credit union’s prior tape solution ultimately failed to meet recovery time objectives, leaving critical data at risk and Desert Schools potentially unprepared for compliance audits. 3RP recommended i365’s EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance as a way for Desert Schools to manage and replicate data both locally and securely via the EVault Cloud while also meeting Desert Schools’ RTO. When compared against similar market offerings, 3RP’s Solutions Architect, Scott Mellegaard, said EVault offered a more comprehensive model that matched Desert Schools’ backup needs.
i365 is a subsidiary of Seagate Co. based in Santa Clara, Calif.
