SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 29, 2016) - Zetta, a leading provider of high-performance business continuity solutions, today announced that the Salvation Army Western U.S. Region has selected Zetta to provide cloud-first, end-to-end backup and recovery to protect its data-heavy IT operations. The Salvation Army selected Zetta because it delivers unmatched backup and recovery speeds, and is, therefore, able to meet the nonprofit's stringent performance and reliability requirements.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. The Salvation Army's Western U.S. Region covers 10 Western states and Guam. The region maintains a Phoenix data center, which supports the organization's 6,500 employee and volunteer users, 600 work sites and business-critical operations, including point-of-sale machines for its 1,500 thrift stores, financial applications, user file and email data.
Prior to Zetta, The Salvation Army was using a solution from a large, legacy backup software vendor to protect its data. However, recovery processes were slow and complex and maintenance costs were rising, leading the division to consider other options.
The Salvation Army chose to make the move to Zetta and its cloud-first solution, which is ideally suited to meet the needs of companies with large data sets and geographically distributed operations. Zetta is able to meet the Salvation Army's stringent performance requirements for backup and recovery operations with error-free restores that can be initiated from anywhere.
"Zetta gives us the confidence we need in the reliability and performance of our data protection environment. With a simple click of a button we can restore needed files without heavy labor or resource involvement, compared to our previous solution which could take one week or more, draining staff time," said Tim Schaal, CIO, Salvation Army Western Region. "The Zetta cloud-first solution is a truly affordable, yet robust, option for our large IT environment. It's eliminated hardware, maintenance and expensive annual support contracts. It's truly been a cost-saving choice."
The Salvation Army was also pleased with how easy and fast the Zetta solution was to set up, reporting that they installed the solution on 100 servers and were backing up within just minutes.
"At Zetta, we've architected an enterprise-grade business continuity solution that's not only easy to use and fast to deploy but also exceptionally high performing and error free," said Mike Grossman, CEO, Zetta. "That's why more than 2,000 enterprise customers and partners have selected Zetta's Business Continuity suite to protect their environments. It's the cost-efficient choice for distributed enterprises with large data sets and stringent performance requirements like The Salvation Army."
