Hitchcock Schools Protects SQL Servers and Data with Replay AppImage
The Hitchcock Independent School District in Hitchcock, Texas serves 1,200 students in grades K - 12 through 4 schools with a new elementary school on the way. The IT group at Hitchcock, led by Chris Armacost, Director of Technology, is responsible for all the end-user devices, network equipment, and servers that support students, teachers, administrators, and the district's Head Start and other special education programs. Central to their mission is protecting student (e.g. grades, reports, plans), business, and course application data that resides on SQL servers. That would be a much bigger worry if it weren't for Replay AppImage. "I don't spend hours on tape backups and then worry about dirty tapes anymore," says Armacost. "Replay AppImage takes snapshots every 15 minutes and if a server does go down, we'll just restore it."
