Backup Systems ever-growing portfolio of satisfied clients includes Edinburgh Leisure – Edinburgh’s biggest leisure provider with over 30 venues and more than 4.8 million customer visits per year. Hear what Stuart Fairbairn; the ICT Manager for Edinburgh Leisure had to say surrounding the success of working with Backup Systems:

Why Edinburgh Leisure originally engaged with Backup Systems:

“We were looking for a cost effective, reliable backup solution. As Backup Systems offered a fully managed service we chose to pursue this option as it freed crucial time across the business to focus on other business critical IT responsibilities.”

The solution – what Backup Systems deployed to address the issue:

“A primary backup server was installed into our main data centre. This included file, SQL and Exchange server backups all of which could be restored on a Daily, Weekly and monthly basis if required. A further server was then installed at a secondary location to ensure we held an off-site backup. We receive email alerts each day regarding what has been backed up and if there have been any issues. A further development has been to include full Virtual Server backups at no additional cost.”

Strategy & execution – how the solution was rolled out:

“The process was extremely simple and straightforward to roll out. We identified the servers we wanted backed up and the work to install the server and configure it was carried out by the Backup team.”

The results & outcomes:

“The end result has been exactly what was asked for. Simple to setup and maintain, any requests for changes are completed quickly and efficiently. Sometimes we even hear about issues before we notice them which is great customer service. Additionally every time we have had to restore either a file or a virtual server the process has been seamless and restored successfully.”
