EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company, (NASDAQ:STX), today announced that Thomas, Kayden, Hostemeyer & Risley, LLP (Thomas | Kayden), the largest intellectual property law firm in Atlanta, has replaced its tape-based backup system with EVault backup and recovery solutions, including the EVault® Cloud Disaster Recovery Service. Thomas | Kayden selected EVault for its hybrid offerings including onsite technology for quick, local backups and restores plus offsite technology for remote disaster recovery. EVault services provide Thomas | Kayden with high-quality, 24/7 support, guaranteed disaster recovery, and greater protection of its clients’ valuable data.
Thomas | Kayden’s legacy tape-based systems had difficulties protecting client archives and keeping up with the firm’s increasing digital data storage needs. Additionally, restores were slow, especially in the event of a disaster, leaving Thomas | Kayden’s nine virtual and physical servers vulnerable.
“Choosing EVault was a no-brainer,” said Jack Huddleston, Thomas | Kayden’s director of operations. “I looked at EVault’s security and at how quickly we could recover our data. What impressed us most was the company’s depth of technical knowledge. EVault is the complete package: the right mix of an outstanding product and an outstanding support team able to provide outstanding service.”
The switch to EVault cloud-connected™ backup and recovery services provided Thomas | Kayden’s IT staff with immediate peace of mind. Today, local and offsite backups and restores take place automatically and ensure transparent protection of important client data.“Our recent DR test with EVault was a huge success,” Huddleston said. “In the operations world, if something happens to client data, our organization is now able to continue to provide services to our clients. That’s very important to us. Losing our data could bankrupt our firm.” “Law firms with client data are particularly sensitive to the effects of data loss resulting from a disaster,” said Terry Cunningham, president and general manager of EVault. “Thomas | Kayden needs to know they are prepared for any situation, and that their backup and recovery system is scalable and can accommodate growing archives of client information. By switching to EVault, the company’s IT staff can rest assured that their data is fully protected and can be restored quickly and easily.”
