Middletons, an Australian law firm with offices in Melbourne and Sydney, recently moved its backup from a tape-based solution to an online system.
The Australian National University (ANU) has deployed a disaster recovery system based on a 1 Gbps free space optics (FSO) link, which it first tested at the IPv6 Summit in 2007 with the help of Google Earth. The FSO-based system replaces the university’s previous 100 Mbps microwave radio-based strategy.
The City of Whittlesea, a local government area in Melbourne’s outer north, has outsourced its disaster recovery (DR) systems to Global Storage after finding the cost and time required to archive its data onto tape were becoming unacceptable to the organisation.
Perth-based ISP Westnet has augmented its existing storage infrastructure in order to cope with recent surges of growth.
