“Managing the data lifecycle – from creation to archiving – is essential.”
Playdale Playgrounds manufactures, supplies and installs outdoor play equipment across the UK, as well as exporting to over 14 countries globally.
Playdale’s owners, the Croasdale family, started out in the logging industry in 1735. In 1978, the ninth generation of Croasdales refocused their trade to the design,manufacture and installation of playground equipment for schools, local authorities, leisure operators and more. Since then, they have grown to approximately 140 staff, 90 of whom are IT users, split between 20 mobile workers and 70 desk-based roles in their central office in Cumbria.
Playdale Playgrounds needed to ensure its critical systems were backed up automatically to another location, away from the flood risk in Cumbria.
Databarracks set up Backup as a Service to run efficiently over its low-bandwidth internet connection.
