Fort Payne Church of Christ Finds More Affordable Backup with Acronis SCS

BACKGROUND

Fort Payne Church

Fort Payne Church of Christ serves the spiritual needs of roughly one hundred and twenty constituents. Located in Fort Payne, Alabama – a community that prides itself on being one of the “100 Best Small Towns in America” – the Church relies on a very small staff to keep operations running smoothly. With a one-man IT team in charge of managing its computing environment, the Church needed a no fuss software solution designed with both file-level and full disk image backup and disaster recovery in mind.

CASE STUDIES

THE NEED: A MORE AFFORDABLE TOOL

According to Fort Payne Church of Christ’s IT Director, conducting regular backups of staff’s devices and data has always been a “no brainer” necessity on his IT priority list. At first, the Church relied on Carbonite to meet its workstation backup needs, but was constrained by pricing structures ill-designed to meet the budgetary needs of a nonprofit with limited IT resources.

In need of a backup solution that could service all its devices under a more affordable bulk subscription-based pricing structure, the Church decided to explore alternative software options.

“Over more than forty years in the computer business, I’ve always understood the need for good backups. This was just a no-brainer.”

-IT Director, Fort Payne Church of Christ

THE SOLUTION: COST-EFFECTIVE BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY

After discovering Acronis SCS Cyber Backup on the recommendation of a fellow IT professional and testing it out via a free trial download, the Church’s IT Director decided to officially make the switch.

Many renewals later, Fort Payne Church of Christ now relies on the Acronis SCS software to perform regular backups of its workstations, ensuring staff members maintain access to their devices and critical data no matter what.

RESULTS IN ACTION: RELIABLE RECOVERY

In the years since Fort Payne Church of Christ first adopted Acronis SCS Cyber Backup, the software’s reliable recovery features have come in handy. The Church has performed file-level restores from their backups with ease, knowing a full-disk image restore would go just as smoothly, should the need for one ever arise.

Acronis SCS Cyber Backup’s ability to quickly and seamlessly recover lost data or restore downed systems has provided peace of mind to the Fort Payne Church of Christ’s staff, allowing them to stay fully focused on their mission.

“The [Acronis SCS] customer support team has always been very helpful, sticking with it to help solve issues as
they come up.”

-IT Director, Fort Payne Church of Christ
