BLR’s IT Department Optimizes Performance and Recovery

Business & Legal Resources® (BLR), the parent company of the IT Daily Advisor, manages an enormous volume of data in order to provide its customers with the latest in legal compliance and training solutions. BLR’s recent IT implementations have ensured 24/7 availability of its products and services to customers—and have cut recovery time by 99.8%.

In an article appearing in the Autumn 2015 issue of OnWindows, BLR’s director of information technology, John Burks, describes how BLR’s new IT infrastructure’s backup vendor was not yet able to support its technology. “We were ahead of the backup vendor’s technology, which didn’t work—at all,” says Burks. “We felt like we were living on the bleeding edge.”

However, after implementing a new solution (Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE), BLR products are constantly available, and the IT team can meet service-level agreements (SLAs) “regardless of a 400% increase in data.” Burks says, “We don’t worry about outages with Veeam because we can recover virtual machines running our websites without customers ever knowing.”
