Jason Casey, CEOMuch of the crucial data concerning our personal and professional lives exist as fragments of gigabytes inside the hardware of a computer. Unfortunately, one cannot delink the reality that information is prone to loss or damage due to natural calamities, crashed storage devices, sudden fire, or cyber thefts. Hardware drives can fail without warning, heightening the critical need for pre and post recovery backup solutions. The emphasis is on speedy recovery solutions that are cloud based, virtual and easily available. Myrtle Beach-based Priorpoint addresses these challenges and specializes in cloud backup, private or semi-private cloud hosting and virtualization services along with proper documentation, and periodic liability testing while ensuring privacy and adherence to security standards. “In our experience, treating backup and recovery as a managed service, provides a much more reliable and positive experience for our customers,” notes Jason A. Casey, CEO, Priorpoint.
Casey’s two decades of experience in the IT space has helped him leverage his rich knowledge and explore avenues in disaster recovery solutions, storage architecture, and network design. Since Priorpoint’s inception, the firm has been a pioneer in the cloud back up and disaster recovery market offering a wide range of services. “We build relationships with our clients that allow us to function as an extension of their team in our core competency: service,” exclaims Casey.
Priorpoint’s cloud back up services for virtual servers can recover entire servers in as little as two minutes. “Priorpoint is able to deliver an incredibly short Recovery Time Objective (RTO) at a very cost effective price point,” adds Casey. The service also enables the recovery of individual files or entire directories from the same backup set. The firm also facilitates recovery of application specific data such as MS Exchange Mailboxes, databases and individual mailbox items, MS SharePoint, Oracle databases and can encompass local and cloud copies. Further, Priorpoints’ Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), helps organizations restore their critical VMWare or MS Hyper-V virtual servers, along with key business processes and applications, directly to its highly secure cloud infrastructure.
Treating backup and recovery as a managed service provides a more reliable and positive experience for our customers
Priorpoint has rendered its services to a multitude of companies and in a recent instance, a national construction company approached Priorpoint seeking to incorporate a managed backup and recovery service into their IT environment. The company was seeking a solution that could help recover significant amount of information quickly, especially during major failures or a catastrophic disaster. The company’s foremost challenge was to ensure that their IT systems were not affected by loss of data or extended downtime, which in-turn could negatively impact their customers and business goals. After a thorough assessment, Priorpoint installed a virtual recovery unit (VRU) on site to facilitate rapid server recovery both onsite and in the cloud. “To maximize protection and reduce recovery time, we provisioned a solution with near “instant” recovery capability onsite as well as in our cloud. The benefits of this design were immediately recognized when a corrupted snapshot rendered their most critical server unusable. We quickly identified the problem and recovered the server directly on the VRU restoring full operations in less than twenty minutes.” says Casey.
Moving forward, the firm is ardent about continuing to improve their virtual and cloud based disaster recovery services. “We constantly seek to enhance or add feature sets that improve the reliability and scope of data recovery,” concludes Casey.
