BakBone Protects O'Reilly

SAN DIEGO -- BakBone Software (BKBO.PK), the leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, protects terabytes of data distributed across O’Reilly Media’s three different geographical sites. BakBone’s NetVault®: Backup provides centralized backup for the company’s Linux, Windows, Mac OS and Solaris data. O’Reilly selected NetVault: Backup for a cost-effective and simple-to-use solution that can handle large volumes of heterogeneous data while reducing administration time and protecting all data backup sites from one central location.

With approximately 100 servers, O’Reilly needed a new solution that not only fit their budget but also reduced the time it took to manage backups. “Compared to our prior solution, BakBone is much faster,” said Chris Stone, O’Reilly’s senior systems administrator. “I used to ask employees to send in a request for what they needed to be restored. With NetVault: Backup, employees can just come up to my desk and I restore their data within seconds. This is a huge improvement over our previous solution, where searching for and restoring data was much slower.”
