Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Nuclear Regulatory Commission

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) was created as an independent agency to ensure the safe use of radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes, whilst protecting people and the environment. The NRC regulates commercial nuclear power plants and other uses of nuclear materials.

Safe and secure backups

The NRC have been using Macrium Reflect for 5 years now and the main reason for their purchase and continued use of the software is its ease of use. NRC can remount a drive as backup and easily retrieve the file they need. With tape backups it can take an hour to find the correct file.

No rebuilding from scratch

The scheduling tool has been particularly effective as each reactor that is overseen by the NRC has a workstation attached that has to be backed up remotely. If the workstation connected fails then the machine is useless and they would have to rebuild from scratch.  Macrium Reflect gives them the confidence that all their very important workstations and servers are securely and safely backed up.  The NRC often need to refresh a workstation computer for backup and restoring of new hardare. NRC have have found The Macrium Technician's License great for this. The speed of the backup and restore has meant that staff's valuable time can be spent elsewhere!

"I've found it fantastic to be able to have a live backup running whilst the server is still operational. This is vital for the successful running of the systems. The software is incredible, Macrium have really out done themselves! Having this tool in my toolkit certainly makes my life a lot easier".  Thomas Magee, Information Resources
