Family-owned since 1979, Emplas have become one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of energy efficient and low maintenance windows & doors. Emplas have been a valued customer of Dufeu IT since 2010. One of our recent projects for Emplas Window Systems Ltd was to help to take their backup effectiveness to a new level. Backups are a crucial part of any business, so making sure that these are working the best they can for you, and your business is so important.
What We Did
A dedicated BDR server has been setup onsite, to limit the risk of the customers backup server being breached and to ensure recovery is possible in the least amount of time with minimum loss of critical data. Along with this, all onsite backups have been migrated from the customers current NAS devices to a new BDR with no downtime, and hourly offsite backups being taken which adds to the ever-increasing need for secure solutions. All new actions have given the customer the ability to restore from their backups much quicker, no matter if this is a single file/folder restore, or a full server!
A live demo was also completed with the customer to illustrate how to use all new features, and how to restore and boot any of their critical servers, to ensure that if the customer is ever in this situation, they have full knowledge and confidence in knowing they can backup within minutes. Stuart Chadwick, Head of IT at Emplas Windows advised that the ‘overhaul of our backup and recovery regime provided a transformation in speed and effectiveness, ensuring we can now deliver clear RTO and RPOs to meet the needs of a successful business experiencing ongoing growth.’ He also adds that a great positive from this project was ‘Dufeu’s ability to deliver flexible and tailored solutions, by knowing and understanding the customer’s business.’
In conclusion, all in all a project perfectly carried out by our Professional Services team, resulting in a very happy customer and stress-free, easy to use backups!
