Dynamic Mutual Funds is one of Canada's leading mutual fund companies with over 350,000 investors across Canada. Dynamic offers an integrated family of funds that cover every market sector and are broad-based and diversified enough to meet the needs of investors nationwide.
As a national organization with several branch offices, Dynamic needed a data backup and recovery strategy that not only safeguarded its data securely off-site but allowed it to restore this data immediately despite the distances involved.
Unfortunately, using conventional tape backup systems and shipping the tapes to an off-site location made fast data restoration a challenge.
Storage Guardian was recommended to Dynamic Mutual Funds by its reseller, Ainsworth Inc. With Storage Guardian, data is backed up nightly to a secure off-site location via a high speed telecommunications link. All backups are performed on a completely automated basis, and Storage Guardian monitors these data backups to ensure that no problems occurred.
By backing up and storing data online, Storage Guardian eliminates the need to ship tapes to and from each branch office. Says Tracy Harron, National Sales Manager for Ainsworth, "Dynamic is a very data-centric organization and we did not want them to be in a situation where it took longer than necessary to restore data. It was clear that Storage Guardian was the answer to our client's needs."
Storage Guardian is proud to help resellers such as Ainsworth satisfy the technical needs of its large corporate customers. Says Kevin Hynes, VP Information Systems at Dynamic: "We can always count on the skilled resources at Ainsworth to support our projects in a very timely and responsive manner."Back to case studies
