Ulleung County Office in South Korea deploys Acronis solution

T.C. Seow | Nov. 11, 2015
The remote county in South Korea chooses Acronis data protection solution to reduce dependency on remote technical support and to reduce downtime.

South Korea's Ulleung County Office, situated in a remote island in the North Gyeongsang Province, and lying 120 km east of the Korean Peninsula in the east sea, implemented Acronis data protection technology across their entire IT infrastructure, increasing infrastructure resilience to data loss and reducing dependence on mainland technical support services.

Because of the remote location, prompt technical support services are not readily available to the Ulleung County Office, and historically data loss and system failure incidents resulted in prolonged downtime periods, halting the most administrative, welfare and education services provided to the county’s residents.

The downtime also affected the infrastructure functionality supporting the islands’ sustainable development, tourism, agriculture and fisheries services.

Ulleung County Office selected Acronis Backup Advanced with Universal License, enabling them to cover the entire range of IT hardware and software, including VMware-powered hybrid environment, and to respond to changing data protection needs quickly and easily — without the extra costs.

According to the press statement, adoption of Acronis solutions resulted in greater data protection, and lead to higher system performance.

“Acronis understands the challenges presented by customers’ hybrid environments and offers highly optimized and customized services to provide full protection for their systems and data. We will continue to provide full technical support and remote maintenance services to Ulleung County Office, empowering them to operate a stable and functional system and deal with any data loss incidents that may occur,” said Steve Goh, Acronis’ Vice President of Sales for Asia-Pacific & Emerging Markets.
