Case Study Boom TV (Data Backup and Recovery)

Executive Summary

Boom TV is a remote training and learning company who has trained more than 6,000 people over 10 years. Remote training sessions offered by the Boom TV are custom-tailored to meet the specific needs of each learner and maintain the same level of involvement as in-person training.


It was the Boom TV's Director of Technology's goal to find the best technology to support remote work and streamline workflow. Internal audits to improve data compliance and security led to an expansion of the project's scope in terms of data backup and recovery in a more compliant way. These audits revealed various areas that might have been improved.It was a smart move by the Boom TV because it would allow them to grow more quickly and more effectively while also reducing their overall costs of maintaining onsite storage and backup infrastructure including physical servers and external hard drives for local backup.


nOps helped Boom TV in transferring data from an on-premises to AWS Simple Storage Service. Data tiering application Rclone was employed by the company since it provides built-in support for the File Fabric. Over the course of the weekend, data was sent to Amazon Simple Storage Service. In addition to a web browser UI, mobile devices, and Cloud Drive, the File Fabric gave Boom TV's users several ways to access their Amazon Simple Storage Service data.The File Fabric added substantial new features in terms of security and compliance. Encryption via streaming encryption and an audit trail that records all data access events were two of the most important features.
