"We needed a backup solution that would perform reliably in the cloud and effectively address VMware backup. After looking at several other solutions, only Avamar delivered the performance, versatility and efficiency we required. With backup as a service, clients are often concerned that a backup job will choke out their network bandwidth. Avamar gives us a great competitive advantage, enabling fast daily full backups across existing LAN/WAN links. Our clients really respond to that. With Avamar, we have exceptional visibility into our backups so we know we're delivering great service levels to our clients. We now have just one admin assigned to backups, yet we're processing nearly five times as many backup jobs."
- Ed McLain, Director of Data Center Operations, TekLinks
