They Won’t Risk their Reputation to Data Loss, and Keep it Safe with Spanning

Second Baptist School knows the pain of dealing with a major data disaster. “We have lost a large amount of important data before. There were several computers that were infected with a virus years ago, and it wiped out entire machines. We were able to recover some of the data, but not all of it; the way the virus erased the data, it had started to write over it as well. Recovery was a long process,” says Blake Skidmore, Director of Informational and Instructional Technology, Second Baptist School.

Cloud-to-cloud data backup and recovery was a priority when they switched to Google Workspace. Skidmore started looking for backup solutions and decided to try Spanning Backup. During the trial process, one of the administrators lost some important data, and Spanning Backup was able to recover quickly and easily. They’ve been a customer ever since.
