As the Gas Authority grows, it has been creating larger and larger amounts of data. Jason Espinales-Osorio, Sr. Sys Admin, explained how they had been using tape backups for all of their data. Tape backup has been around for many years and in fact, is one of the oldest default backup plans. It became evident that tape backup has limited amounts of space and Jason and his team would continually have to purchase additional tapes as their data grows, therefore becoming cost prohibitive.
Jason started looking at several cloud backup vendors, but quickly realized that iland is a leader in disaster recovery (DRaaS) and backup as a service (BaaS).
