The Information Technology department of Office of the Provost at University of Southern California (USC) used tapes as a backup medium, which they found to be unreliable and time-consuming. It was taking them hours and sometimes a full day to restore the backups. Also, they were looking for an integrated solution that would help with backup, recovery and high availability.
Following a careful investigation and research, USC deployed Sonasoft for Exchange for data protection, high availability and disaster recovery. Sonasoft not only offered reliable data backup and recovery but also enabled them to set up a failover server, giving total protection and high availability for the Exchange server.
