SAN JOSE, CA(Marketwired - Oct 3, 2013) - Quorum®, the leading provider of one-click backup, recovery  and continuity for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced that the City  of Mt. Dora has successfully deployed the Quorum solution. Citing the solution's  simplicity, ease of use, and on-demand and automatic testing, the central  Florida city finds peace of mind in knowing recovery of its departments' data,  applications and systems is minutes away.


"When system downtime threatens to shut down critical business functions for  any of Mt. Dora's nine departments which include police, fire, water, the city  manager and public works it's easy to see how grave the impact would be," said  Johnna Shamblin, IT manager for the City of Mt. Dora. "This means that having a  disaster recovery solution in place that minimizes downtime is absolutely  critical. We considered a number of different disaster recovery solutions, and  only Quorum was able to deliver the instant recovery required to keep our departments always  on."


After several years relying on Zenith Infotech's BDR disaster recovery  system, Shamblin and Mike Andrews, assistant IT manager for the City of Mt.  Dora, found the company's appliances were approaching capacity. So when one of  the city's 25 servers reached a certain size, it stopped backing up. Of course,  this proved problematic: If the city lost the server that gave the backup  problems, recovery would last at least as long as it took to move the vast  volume of data to a new server a day or longer. In addition, BDR offered little  by way of testing capabilities. In fact, due to the length of time it took to  perform tests, Shamblin and Andrews were able to carve out only a few days each  year to complete the process.


Realizing the limitations of the BDR system, they  initiated a search for a new disaster recovery solution. Quorum was introduced as an  option, and after a thorough investigation, Shamblin and Andrews made their  decision.



"Aside from Quorum's one-click, instant recovery of data, applications and  systems, the solution's ease of use and automatic and on-demand testing  capabilities made it an attractive choice," said Andrews, who performed the  installation and configuration after purchase. "We deployed Quorum in January  2013, and it's now protecting all 25 of our servers."


"Cities run just like any small to mid-sized business, and system downtime  can devastate their critical infrastructures just as severely," said Larry Lang,  CEO, Quorum. "The City of Mt. Dora is one of a growing number of cities that  understands the importance of instant recovery of its data, applications and  systems in order to properly serve its residents. Investing in Quorum is  certainly a step in the right direction."
