4Com Evaluates Major Vendors and Chooses Bacula Enterprise Edition
4Com, the innovative technology company, has deployed Bacula Enterprise Edition as its preferred backup and data recovery solution. “Our finance department needed to know not only what today’s data backup costs would be, but future costs too. So the main decision to go with Bacula was simply because, in addition to its huge range of features, it imposed no architectural or financial limitation on how much data we could back up. And because we can´t predict, how much our data volume will grow in the future, it really made sense to leverage Bacula and simply eradicate any concerns about future data volume levels”, said Marc Alexander Hinz, Team Leader of IT at 4Com.
“We run over 400 Servers” said Marc. “Spanning over nine data centers, we have, before deduplication, more than 200TB space for Bacula backup. Now with Bacula Enterprise Edition we do one full backup per month, with incrementals every day. In some cases, we store thousands of files in one single folder. We also have quite a variety of different data-types to back up, from environments such as MySQL, MSSQL, Windows-Servers, Linux-Servers and Exchange. Bacula has the depth of features to be able to handle all our data types with ease. It also enables us to meet our specific backup strategy”, said Marc.
