Alzheimer’s Association and Spanning Backup for Google Workspace

Imagine a world without  Alzheimer’s disease. Paul Inboriboon, director of tech infrastructure at the Alzheimer’s Association, and his team, work behind-the-scenes to support the mission of the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. The Association includes the national organization and approximately 75 chapters, resulting in over 2,900 staff nationwide. The National IT Department hosts key applications used by all their staff.

“We’re working to advance Alzheimer’s research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure. That’s one of our main focuses, in addition to providing care and support to families facing the disease today,” he said.

After switching to Google Workspace from Exchange in 2012 because of the agility and collaborative capacity afforded by the Google software suite, Paul had several reasons to look for a backup solution.

“Having backup in place is the IT best practice; any critical data that we have, we should be backing up because we’re ultimately responsible for it as an organization. But there are cases where a user intentionally does something that we learned is not covered by Google support, and that’s when we searched for a better backup solution for Google Workspace,” Paul said.

“You don’t throw away the solution when you find a gap because there’s still a lot of good value in the Google Workspace solution. We just needed to find the missing piece.”

And that piece was Spanning Backup for Google Workspace. Learn how Spanning fits into this international nonprofit and helps keep them working on their mission instead of thinking about data loss. Read their full user story here.
