Griffin-Spalding County Schools
After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, Griffin-Spalding County IT Director Rod Smith realized that his School System’s network was easily susceptible to permanent damage if the data center was to crash. He realized that if the district did not invest in a reliable backup and disaster recovery solution, the schools would be at high risk for never fully recovering their data infrastructure. He needed an all-in-one backup solution that could protect the current 37 servers and 1.2TB of data in addition to a solution that could support the growing data center.
“We didn’t have the funds to do the same level of backup as a large enterprise corporation,” Smith said. But we had heard some positive things about bare metal recovery of entire servers, and we realized that Unitrends was a possible fit.”
