Managing data protection at Whorton Insurance Services in Austin, Texas was consuming most of the company’s operations manager’s nights and weekends. To ease the burden and avoid adding IT staff resources, Whorton purchased an integrated data protection appliance from Dell and Symantec. Results include 83 percent less staff time spent managing backups, 99 percent backup success, and a 24-fold improvement in local recovery point objective. Payback is in 10 months.
