Case Study: Copperfin Credit Union transforms backup and recovery operations with Stage2Data and Cohesity




Data loss as a result of, amongst others, cybercrime, hardware and software failures and human error is a major concern for organizations of all sizes. It can disrupt the day-to-day operations of any information-based business. Additionally, it remains a challenge to ensure that backups occur on a timely, scheduled basis.

Copperfin Credit Union, Northwestern Ontario’s largest locally owned credit union, produces a large volume of files, and data must often be retained indefinitely in order to meet both regulatory and internal audit requirements. The data comprise sensitive financial and client information.

The company fell victim to a phishing attack as a result of a device lacking endpoint protection at the time. A new employee opened an email containing the phishing attack which infected the entire file-sharing server. This combined with the fact that Copperfin’s data footprint has increased made them realize that their current backup and recovery solution lagged behind in terms of both performance and features. Consequently, the company contracted Stage2Data to tailor a more robust solution for the backup and recovery needs of their IT environment which include 12 virtual servers, approximately 3 terabytes of file data and SQL servers.

Stage2Data introduced Copperfin to Cohesity, a new and more sophisticated solution to simplify the management of data across data centers and clouds.
