Business Challenge

With an IT staff serving more than 160 franchise owners in over 90 major U.S. and Canadian cities, The Maids generates a vast store of vital operational data. Keeping that data both secure and backed up away from their primary datacenter became a daunting challenge, as tape backups often failed and data was only replicated and retained once a week. Building a dedicated offsite backup solution was both a costly and time-consuming endeavor, The Maids looked to the Cloud for a faster, easier and more cost-effective means of securing their data backups. Jelecos Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) powered by Veeam was there with the answer.
