April Showers? Don’t Worry, Like American Pacific Mortgage, You’ll Be Safe On The Ground Or In The Cloud

By Miranda Foster

In many parts of the world, April is the onset of spring – which usually means lots of rain. In the IT world, we like rain. Why? Because you need a cloud to have rain – just like you need a cloud for backup.

Spring is also one of the busiest times for the real estate market. Companies like American Pacific Mortgage process enormous amounts of data so home owners can sell and others can buy – not just in the spring, but year round. And the data needs to be managed efficiently because time is of the essence in the high transaction lending industry.

With a lean IT team, American Pacific Mortgage knew it needed more effective strategies for business value, including a cloud solution to execute routine solutions like email. It needed a platform solution that could tie together its systems and allow for growth through add-on modules. Commvault was selected based on the portability of our licensing model, which gives the organization the flexibility to migrate to the cloud on pace with business requirements – as well as its ability to provide a variety of solutions on a single platform.

According to Michele Buchman, VP of Information Services: “After a thorough analysis across multiple vendors, it became clear that Commvault was the right choice for our business for many reasons. We wanted to be able to scale to enterprise level requirements, to do that with a partner that could not only meet our requirements today, but also had a vision for the future of data protection, and move with us in our journey to the cloud. For us, Commvault was the clear choice.”
