"When I took over the IT role, one of my top priorities was to find a new backup system for company data. A home remodeling company of about 50 people near Madison, WI." When Itson came on board at Waunakee Remodeling, the company was backing up to disk, but it didn't always work and was a frustrating manual process. He began looking for a new solution, and had a list of requirements. The new solution had to be affordable, easily back up the company's ever-changing inventory data, and work seamlessly with both Exchange and Microsoft SQL servers.
Looking for a Solution
When Itson started his search, he wasn't aware of any affordable cloud backup vendors that offered protection for databases as well. He wanted to use one vendor for the company's data backup, but wasn't sure if it would be possible. He decided to start looking into a number of vendors, one being Carbonite.
"I had seen Carbonite ads and was aware of the brand, so it was one of the first vendors I looked at," says Itson. "I was happily surprised to hear that Carbonite now offers database backup!"
Itson started a free 30-day trial backing up his company's computers, and was impressed with Carbonite Business' features.
