Eliminate Downtime at Half the Cost…

Abaxio Client Saved $300,000 and Eliminated Downtime

“I found the most advanced, cost effective business continuity product available on the market” – Aaron Matatov, IT Infrastructure Manager at Ohel Family Services

Ohel is one of the largest private social services agencies in New York City.  “I don’t need to tell you – downtime sucks, as it affects the entire organization.  We’ve been a client of Abaxio for more than seven years, and I am continuously impressed with the performance of Abaxio relative to its competition, not only technologically, but also in terms of cost and customer support.”, says Matatov.  “Additionally, Abaxio is the only solution we’ve seen so far to offer a 100% uptime SLA and a guarantee against a breach, hack or network downtime of up to $10,000,000 through their A+ rated insurance partners AIG, Beazely and Lloyds of London.”.

Levi Staal, M.Sc., President & CEO of Abaxio acknowledged the accolade:  “I get personal satisfaction by exceeding the expectations of each one of my customers, so thankfully, Ohel’s experience is not unique to us:  A recent poll of Abaxio customers showed that more than 87% of our customers would likely recommend Abaxio to a friend or colleague.”.

Responding to Our Customers’ Needs:

A 2015 study of more than 2,000 executive and IT professionals (The 2015 Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Survey by EvolveIP) shows that originally, Ohel’s situation was similar to that of most mid-tier organizations:  In need of a hot D/R site, but not enough in the budget to implement it.

As shown, a full 44% (of those with compliance requirements) consider themselves only ‘Somewhat Prepared’ for an IT disaster.  “Somewhat Prepared” means that despite the data being backed up, even offsite, many hours or even days may still be required to get the data servable and online.  According to InfoGroup, a polling response of 44% represents more than ten million organizations in North America!

Unsurprisingly, it’s budget (and the lack thereof) that’s driving the unpreparedness. More than 50% of responding organizations have budgets of less than $50,000 for DR/BC, which is generally *not* enough money to implement true BC/DR.

What is surprising is the size of the organizations who responded in the poll relative to such a meager budget for BC: 70% had more than 100 employees; 17% had more than 2,000.

Abaxio’s BC/DR Solution – Exceeding Customer Requirements

Staal says, “For my customers, Abaxio is a critical component in their BC/DR planning. Until now, such readiness was attainable only with an IT budget in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and months on the calendar to get it done. Most of my customers have a budget for DR/BC of less than $50k and days, not months, to get it done. Abaxio fulfills their requirements.”.

Clearly, spending $40-50k for true Business Continuity provides significant ROI when compared to the cost of downtime, even if it happens once every couple of years.

Using any of the ‘Downtime’ calculators you’ll find on Google, it cost our 50 member law firm $360k for the two occasions their servers went down in the past five years.  Contrasted against the investment they made to implement Abaxio BC/DR, they saved more than $300,000.  The math for this particular client is shown at the end of this article.
