Money Mailer Protects Exchange and SQL Server Data with BakBone



    Quality Leader in the Direct Mail Industry Benefits from BakBone's
Scalable and Reliable Data Protection

    SAN DIEGO, August 29 /CNW/ - BakBone Software(R) (Pink Sheets:  BKBO), a
global provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, today
announced that Money Mailer protects over 120 terabytes of data across 300
franchises with BakBone solutions. Money Mailer is the number one advertising
services franchise for the third consecutive year, according to Entrepreneur
Magazine. Money Mailer relies on NetVault(R): Backup Application Plugin
Module(TM) (APM) for SQL Server and NetVault: Backup APM for Exchange to
safeguard their business-critical data. Money Mailer uses Microsoft SQL Server
for financial reporting and many day-to-day operations systems, and the
network operations team supports a massive Microsoft Exchange installation. As
Money Mailer continued to grow at a rapid pace, adding over 60 franchisees
annually, technology requirements tripled over a three-year period.

    "Art is king at Money Mailer and we handle thousands of PDF files daily,"
said Frank Migliaccio, director of network operations at Money Mailer.
"Increasingly, our franchisees depend on our ability to reproduce those files
quickly if something happens on their end and an image is damaged or lost."

    Money Mailer runs BakBone's flagship data protection solution, NetVault:
Backup, with NetVault: Backup APM for Exchange and NetVault: Backup APM for
SQL Server. Performance has been flawless, enabling Money Mailer to reap
immediate benefits. In particular, BakBone's ease-of-use garners high marks at
Money Mailer for its simple, graphical user interface, policy automation and
cadre of reporting tools that substantially streamline daily management of
backup and recovery operations. "Performing backups is almost a 'set and
forget' process now," added Migliaccio. "Previously, we spent an average of 20
man-hours each week managing our prior solution. With BakBone, it takes less
than an hour each week to review daily reports of the previous night's backup,
which rarely require intervention." With BakBone's solutions in place, Money
Mailer no longer experiences problems backing up and recovering Microsoft
Exchange data.

    "BakBone uniquely addresses the data protection demands of its customers
and is dedicated to supporting Microsoft applications, in addition to
providing leading data protection technology for Linux and Solaris
environments," said Jeff Drescher, vice president of marketing at BakBone.
"Money Mailer needed a backup solution that could keep pace with its growing
business and its mission-critical Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange
servers. BakBone's solutions are simple to install, require little training
time and provide Money Mailer with data protection, disaster recovery and
business continuity."

    With more than 300 franchises in 33 states throughout North America,
Money Mailer serves 195 categories of business, mails 189 million envelopes to
21.5 million homes and services more than 30,000 local, regional and national
advertisers.
