"When it took our old backup product almost 24 hours to restore the server, we knew it was time for a change. With the help of our consultant Paul Sciacca at CloneMasters, we found a great product that met all our needs for local and virtual backup and quick restores to and from the cloud," said Brent Adams, VP, Finance & Technology, Pacific Mechanical Supply. "We are so confident of the results we've seen thus far that we back up our critical systems (Exchange, SQL and File Server) to Amazon S3 via PHD's CloudHook to ensure adequate protection in the event of an unplanned disaster."

Results cataloged by PacMech since using PHD Virtual Backup:

  • § $15,000/year cost savings by replacing old backup product with PHD Virtual Backup
  • § Restore of full VMs in just one hour
  • § Less than 5 minute file restore
  • § Complete install of product within 40 minutes (configuration and all backup jobs created)
  • § Backup of 15.2 TB of data using 1.2 TB of actual space showing an average of 25:1 dedupe ratio

With PHD's new CloudHook, customers can avoid buying and managing costly cloud gateway appliances and cumbersome tape or other storage media for offsite backups.  The PHD Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA) now gives you an easy-to-configure option in the cloud that removes all of that complexity. The best part is that you can recover just as easily from the cloud as you can from your local backups. Getting set up is quick and easy -- one click in the PHD console backs up data to the customer's choice of popular third party cloud providers, such as Amazon, Google, Rackspace or another private/public cloud provider storage. All provide the flexibility to scale as data storage needs increase.
