SEP Software Corp. Increases Backup Efficiency for Mount Aloysius College
Backup and Disaster Recovery Solution Provides University with Exponentially Decreased Backup Windows
Boulder, CO – October 27, 2015 – Mount Aloysius College’s IT Department has had great success with their switch to SEP Software and the implementation a full SEP sesam backup and disaster recovery solution. After a year and a half of using SEP, Mount Aloysius College couldn’t be happier with SEP. “I can definitively say that SEP sesam backs up our environment at least twice as fast, uses only one server instead of two, and our backups complete well within our backup window. It is much faster than our old solution,” explains Clint Scott, Systems Administrator for Mount Aloysius College.

“With our old backup software, we were using two backup servers in order to get double the through-put to make the backup windows possible because one server wasn’t able to handle everything. There were times when managing the backup software was really inconvenient because there were so many backups running at once on two servers, finding the specific backup you needed meant bouncing back and forth to find what you needed. It was also becoming a challenge to get the backups to complete within our backup window,” recalls Clint Scott.
“We were very impressed with what they [SEP] had to say. So we installed SEP sesam in a test environment and it seemed to work for our needs. I definitely liked the layout of SEP sesam better than our old solution. It’s much easier to manage everything from one central server location. The SEP GUI is a great product to use. It’s self-explanatory. It displays information where it needs to be and that is one big improvement switching from our old solution,” says Scott.
Additionally, “the installation of SEP sesam was fantastic. I was very impressed with the amount of support that was provided on the technical side. Any time I had a question or needed help, the SEP team always had the answer I needed. The SEP support team was very knowledgeable, very thorough and always went above and beyond to get us to where we needed to be,” remembers Scott. “We are very pleased with the ease of use of SEP sesam. We have four datastores for four different Cybernetics boxes and adding each one was easy to do and was something I was able to do on my own from the beginning.”
