07/13/2010

Lincoln County Healthcare has chosen AppAssure’s award-winning Replay 4 backup and disaster recovery software to protect its information systems taking risk and finding budget for IT in tough economic times.

Online PR News – 13-July-2010 – – Reston, VA – AppAssure Software, Inc., a provider of innovative Windows Server backup and disaster recovery software, today announced that Maine’s Lincoln County Healthcare relies on AppAssure’s flagship backup and disaster recovery software product, Replay 4, to protect its information systems taking risk and finding budget for IT in tough economic times.

Lincoln County Healthcare (LCH) is a small health system on the rugged coast of Maine with two small hospitals and retirement communities, employing more than 1,200 full and part-time people.

“If you’re an IT person and you’re not getting successful backup, you’re not doing your job,” says Brooks Betts, Vice President of Information Services at LCH. As is the case with many hospitals in Maine, budgets are extremely tight for LCH, but Betts knew he needed a backup redesign to protect his mission-critical systems. He drew up a plan, went to the CEO of LCH and said, “I realize this might be the worst time to ask for money for IT, but we can’t afford not to have this solution before there’s any massive problem.”

According to Betts, he selected AppAssure’s Replay 4 to support the backup and recovery needs of 60 servers and 650 workstations. Replay was intended to replace a big traditional backup product that was not working the way they needed it to. As he explains, “Restores were a nightmare until AppAssure came along. I cannot believe how easy it was! Replay 4 erased our fear of a catastrophic failure of a business critical system.”

“With AppAssure, I didn’t have to take a class on how to do my backup system. It all made sense and was easy to do,” summarizes Betts.

Replay 4 provides organizations worldwide with sophisticated backup and disaster recovery capabilities, including:

- Eliminates the backup window
- Creates point-in-time images continuously
- Reduces server down-time allowing users to access applications (including e-mail) during a live recovery
- Reduces disk space upwards of 80% with built-in data deduplication and compression
- Allows for recovery or messages, files, databases, storage groups or the entire server from bare-metal in just a few clicks.
