Michigan-based Abadata has been providing complete network solutions to small businesses across a variety of industries for over 35 years. Abadata strives to provide solutions that can cater to any budget, without sacrificing on security or quality in the process. Abadata is also an Elite Datto Partner, advocating for strong business continuity for total data protection. One of their clients includes the local township of Tittabawassee. The police department recently equipped a number of officers with dash and body cameras and Abadata was tasked with finding a local backup solution for the footage.
The department was considering using Google Drive to back up the camera footage, but the process ended up requiring too much manual input and costs were above their budget for the number of officers using the cameras. Upfront costs for cameras can be as high as $1,000, so it was important to keep ongoing costs, including storage and backup, as low as possible. Nick Friske, a network engineer at Abadata, recommended they use a Datto ALTO XL for agent-based backup, an automated solution at a fraction of the price of Google Drive on a monthly basis.
