That all changed when the university switched to Dell EMC IDPA. The appliance allowed them to automate protection of their VMs, giving their staff one central web interface for data protection management while also achieving 84:1 deduplication.

“We’re more sure that our backups work because we can test them more frequently,” said Britt Anderson, a supervisor with System Administration at Christian Brothers University. “The backup times are significantly faster than our previous backup solution.” He also added that the consolidation is saving the university money because they were able to eliminate several vendors.

“Once you turn the appliance on, if you know what you’re doing, you can click some buttons and the VMs auto-deploy themselves and auto-provision themselves,” Britt said.

Learn how the organization is saving 8 to 10 hours each week and a considerable amount of money with IDPA in this Dell EMC video.
