Problem to Solve
WorkPac had significant Microsoft cloud investments — and they needed to be protected. They had been searching for a solution that could easily backup and restore email from a number of different software scenarios; from old Microsoft Exchange servers to new, cloud-based Office 365 mailboxes.
WorkPac had been using Cloudally to backup email. According to WorkPac, the product worked well for cloud mail but was very basic. It lacked many of the features that more advanced cloud solutions offered, and it was not always easy to use.
According to WorkPac’s Systems Engineer, Craig Stevens, “We had evaluated several expensive, all-encompassing backup solutions. After reviewing Dropsuite, we found that it not only looked after email backup, but also safeguarded other Office 365 apps like SharePoint. For the cost, Dropsuite really made sense commercially. And their eDiscovery feature was something that was a huge value-add.”
Craig and the WorkPac team learned first hand that Dropsuite was easy to use and many features packed into a single pane of glass. WorkPac selected Dropsuite and migrated all their legacy emails from their on-premise legacy email server to Exchange Online. They now use Dropsuite to protect all their Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business data.
WorkPac was able to migrate a large old email server to Office 365 using Dropsuite as the conduit — without a hitch — and their Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) have decreased with email. All in all, WorkPac is a very satisfied client.
