Our Solution

Accend Networks' Disaster Recovery experts stepped in immediately to help restore data from an outdated system.

Our Emergency Response Team

    • Assisted Lithotype to rebuild the switch’s teaming network configuration to work with their VMware virtual
      switch settings from scratch to preserve the existing virtual machines to avoid losing any data.
    • Rebuilt Lithotype's outdated network connectivity with a replacement switch.
    • Ensured any data from the old system would not be lost in configuration.
    • Worked efficiently to allow Lithotype to be fully restored and back in business the following morning.

The Results

In less than 1 day, Lithotype's data was fully restored and any scheduled projects were not delayed.

"Not only did Paula and Accend Networks come to our rescue, they brought a replacement switch, configured it, and was online supporting us throughout the entire time... Paula was amazingly quick, ef icient and brilliant with what she did. I will definitely use Paula and Accend Networks again."
