Data recovery time reduced from days to hours

One of the UK’s Top 30 independent Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, Hazlewoods, has signed a five-year deal with backup and disaster recovery specialist, Cristie Data, to protect its corporate and client data.

As a result of substantial growth in Hazlewoods client base over the past few years, the Gloucestershire firm required a more robust and scalable solution that would reduce the risk of data loss.

Cristie Data is delivering a cloud-based backup solution, based on Arcserve UDP, with a dedicated disaster recovery environment housed in a secure ISO 27001 accredited data centre owned by its parent company iomart. Multiple backups can now be completed during the working day, with minimal impact to production servers or networks, and the recovery time for data has been reduced from five days to under four hours.

Mark Brackley, IT Manager, Hazlewoods said: “With the business growing rapidly, we needed to replace our previous DR and Backup solution with one that met both current and predicted future requirements. Cristie Data understood our business but also brought fresh ideas. I’m pleased to say the implementation has gone well and testing has proved we selected the right provider and solution.”

The Cristie Data solution includes proactive monitoring, reporting and support and two DR tests a year. Hazlewoods pays a monthly service fee to Cristie Data who manage the cloud solution 24/7.

Ryan Smith, Director of Sales, Cristie Data, added: “Our consultative approach to fully understanding what data protection means for a business and the wider drivers for change, enabled us to design the right solution that will scale to protect Hazlewoods business critical data now and in the future. Cristie Data is providing ongoing support and management to Hazlewoods, with regular DR testing that will allow fastest time to recovery in the event of a disaster.”
