With $600 million dollars of insurance policies in force, North Coast Life needed to ensure their data was well protected in case of hardware failure or a disaster. Their backup software was coming up for renewal; not entirely happy with the service or the cost, the information systems director, Jeff Shaver, decided to conduct research on alternative software solution available on the market.
After evaluating three competing products, Shaver decided on Paragon’s Drive Backup Server software. Paragon was selected for its ease-of-use, reliability, dependability, customer service and price point. One month of the purchase and implementation, North Coast experienced the loss of one of its main web servers running RAID 5, which lost a drive and refused to allow a new drive to be introduced into the RAID. Within 25 minutes the web server running Windows 2003 Server was back up and running.
According to Shaver, “Now I can sleep at night since I have already used Drive Backup under the worst possible scenario, and Paragon came through with flying colors.”
