The Lee County Tax Collector’s Office was using a backup and recovery solution for its existing VMware deployment. Given the sensitive nature of the data stored, ensuring its security and availability are critically important elements for the organization.
While it maintains its backups on a four-month cycle, the Tax Collector’s Office needed a more effective way of managing the space required to do so. It has approximately 50 virtual servers and replicates backups and virtual machines (VMs) to an offsite disaster recovery location.
“From what we saw, the HYCU and Nutanix approach would deliver the greatest benefits in terms of our particular requirements. It was a powerful solution that delivered most of the functionality of VMware, but with the added benefit of no ongoing costs,” said Ron Joray, ITS Assistant Manager, Lee County Tax Collector Office.
