Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. was paying $150,000 per year to outsource data protection. When the company decided to bring backups in-house, it needed a solution that would keep its data secure, while requiring minimal IT staff time. The company selected a backup appliance from ExaGrid Systems and a Symantec data protection solution. It achieved payback within three months. Now monitoring backup logs takes the IT director only 30 seconds a day, and he is 100 percent confident that his data is protected.
