integrates into our virtual
environments and lets us
quickly bring back a VM from a
point in time has been pretty
much flawless. We are now
confident that the backup data
that we’re retaining is valid
and that the event of a disaster
or application failure, we’re
able to quickly recover both at
any level.”
“Know All Edge Professional
Services was of great
assistance in testing all our use
cases and also some DR
operations. Also, their ongoing
support has probably been one
of the best we have dealt with.
The process has always been
fast and straightforward, from
logging calls to getting
solutions.”
