Backup Technology Case Study: Park City Mountain Resort

Executive Summary

Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR) was one of the venues for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. It is responsible for managing a majority of the IT infrastructure for the different POWDR Corp resorts. This entails developing the overall IT strategy and hosting key applications for their sister properties. Hosting the applications and bringing the data in-house had already begun to put a strain on resources and increase the amount of data that needed to be backed up daily. PCMR had been using a 40/80GB DLT tape autoloader running Veritas Backup Exec 9.1 to backup their data. It was no secret that this system was inadequate and something needed to be done to increase the speed and reliability of their backup routine. Park City Mountain Resort implemented the Idealstor FrankeNAS backup solution and Ibac Data Protection Software to backup and store their critical data. Ibac backs up data in its native format making restores simply drag and drop without requiring a separate restoration to be done to access the backup data. By using BVM, PCMR was able to store an entire week's worth of backup to the redundant SATA array in the FrankeNAS and have this data locally accessible for when it is needed. Now the company has easy back up with fast reliable media that could be retrieved from offsite.
