Electrical Testers is a privately-owned company formed back in 1991. Back then, the team set itself the goal of helping businesses comply with the recently introduced Electricity at Work Regulations: 1989 by offering electrical testing and fire safety compliance services that stripped out the guesswork and technical jargon. Today, the team can be found in Northamptonshire – a base from which they manage their network of highly-qualified engineers throughout the UK.

Challenge

Electrical Testers were running many virtual and physical servers on-site and were relying on their previous provider (Veeam) to back up the virtual servers to a local Network Attached Storage (NAS) device.

In turn, they were writing these backup files to a tape for off-site redundancy, meaning that the responsibility was on someone every day to make sure that the tapes were changed and taken off-site.

Solution

We discussed with Electrical Testers in great length, the benefits of a local and cloud based backup solution, negating the need for Veeam, tapes and a tape drive.

After a full sizing assessment was completed, it was decided a Datto Siris device was the best fit for Electrical Testers. It enables them to take full image backups of their servers from as little as every 5 minutes and replicate these servers out into the cloud daily for full DR. Their Datto Siris device also scans for ransomware and provides screenshot verification for completed backups.
