New York-based Maxim Group was forced to come up with a new data backup strategy following a series of disasters that date back to the summer of 2007.

In a span of less than a year, the investment banking, securities and investment management firm had a hard drive fail, resulting in a quarter-hour loss of its Exchange server; a nearby steam pipe burst forcing an evacuation; and the air conditioner in the data center failed, sending the temperature into that room to 128 degrees. This was all topped off with the building flooding on Easter Sunday

“These events really opened our eyes,” said John Michaels, chief technology officer at Maxim Group, which has branch offices in Long Island N.Y., Manhattan, N.Y. and Red Bank, N.J. “Fortunately, the Exchange server was on a mirrored drive, and we dodged bullets in the other cases.”

Oftentimes, the disaster recovery (DR) or business continuity (BC) plan for a remote location revolves around how to access, restore or co-locate data. Fortunately, a new crop of robust backup and accelerator options is making that task easier than ever, freeing workers at remote locations from having to change backup tapes and allowing central IT workers to remain in control of the backup process by leveraging their existing infrastructure to implement a cost-effective formal disk-based backup.
