Bridgewater Savings Bank Moves to EVault Cloud-Connected Backup and Recovery …
EMERYVILLE, Calif., Apr 11, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company /quotes/zigman/118457/quotes/nls/stx STX -3.29% , today announced that Bridgewater Savings Bank has replaced its costly and inefficient legacy backup system with the EVault® Plug-n-Protect appliance, EVault Offsite Replication Service and EVault System Restore software for a Cloud-Connected solution to backup and recovery. The Massachusetts-based community bank chose the information protection experts at EVault to guard its critical applications and customer data. The recent EVault solution provides cost-effective, comprehensive backup and recovery that permits the bank to leverage both on-premise and offsite data protection, and more easily follow federal and state regulations.
Prior to partnering with EVault, Bridgewater Savings Bank’s IT team needed to sort through numerous reports each morning to validate that its backups were successfully completed overnight. Additionally they needed to download data restores over the web at approximately 1 GB an hour, or team members needed to drive hours around the state to retrieve data from their vendor. In both cases, the bank had trouble meeting its Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs). Additionally, since the bank’s backup data was stored offsite in an information center at the Eastern seaboard it was susceptible to hurricanes and volatile weather.
“Data recovery took too long using our old backup system. The former vendor also lacked sufficient coverage of their overall compliance controls. EVault’s auditing report was more comprehensive than the former vendor’s report, in addition to others we considered,” said Chris St. Aubin, Bridgewater’s IT officer. “This is a critical issue for any IT organization in a banking environment. With EVault Cloud-Connected backup, our reports are consolidated in one email that we will easily review and log out on for compliance and management oversight. We perform full server DR restores on our VMware test bed in far less time than shall we before. EVault saved us millions of greenbacks over the long run in our data backups.”
The EVault system has given the bank a simple-to-use, affordable solution that permits compliance and rapid recovery, backed by the EVault cloud. Backups are saved locally at the EVault Plug-n-Protect appliance and replicated to the EVault cloud via the EVault Offsite Replication Service, greatly reducing recovery and testing times while protecting data offsite from the chance of hurricanes and inclement weather. St. Aubin and his staff may be able to restore the bank’s Windows servers to different hardware using bare metal restores, speeding the recovery process even further.
“We understand the stern regulatory compliance and accessibility challenges that banks like Bridgewater face,” said Terry Cunningham, president and general manager at EVault. “They needed a trusted partner that can help them more efficiently manage their IT needs. Through EVault’s Cloud-Connected backup and recovery offerings, the bank’s data is protected both on-premise, for quick onsite access, and offsite within the EVault cloud, providing peace of mind that customers’ data is safe, secure, and compliant.”
