The University was rapidly approaching capacity constraints on the backup and recovery infrastructure. A flexible solution was urgently required to serve the University’s growing requirements while they planned for a broader technology refresh.
iQ3 had demonstrated great success delivering cloud backup to a range of organisations across Asia Pacific. The University evaluated 13 Vendors – feedback was that IQ3 was the only vendor that could deliver the flexible commercial model that met the customer’s requirements.
iQ3’s Cloud Backup service was deployed and operational within one week. Deduplication technology was used to efficiently move data across the inter-university network (AARNet). Success rates were above 99% and the Service was able to deliver critical restores of data. iQ3 continues to be engaged to assist in the ongoing evolution of data protection at UTS.
