Vinchin provides data protection for Jarocin County Government
With more and more data are generated daily in their Citrix Hypervisor and XCP-ng infrastructure, Robert felt it increasingly difficult to back up those data manually on both platforms. He needs to find an effective backup tool for himself to reduce his workload and 100% secure those precious data.

With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, Robert saved 50% of costs on storage capacity, and more importantly, it saved him a lot of time on maintenance and management of the backup server, he could do more other things instead of wasting time on backup manually.
The first time I downloaded Vinchin Backup & Recovery was November 2019. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic I had to postpone the test until March 2020. I’m so amazed by the Vinchin support team because they are always there for me whenever I came with questions. For people who are new to a new piece of software, having someone on the side to help is critical. Vinchin has brought me a very good user experience. I felt the power of a strong support team behind the software, which made me decide to apply to the management for the purchase of Vinchin Backup & Recovery after trying it for 3 months.

“In order to strengthen the modernization of Jarocin County, we started from the IT construction since a few years ago. All kinds of affairs & services in the whole county need to be recorded and run in the data center that I am in charge of, including various meetings held by various government departments each year, various services provided to county residents, such as resident mobile application, which will show you the route to the nearest Polish diplomatic mission and tell you what to do if you encounter problems during your trip, or how to ensure your personal safety around the world. And other services we provide to the resident like education information, Legal information, and assistance, healthcare information as well as resource sharing about tourism to non-local tourists and other information, etc.” Says Robert Cenkier, IT Manager at Jarocin District Office.
“With more and more data are generated daily in our Citrix Hypervisor and XCP-ng infrastructure, I felt it increasingly difficult to back up those data manually on both platforms. I need to find an effective backup tool for myself to reduce my workload and 100% secure those precious data. So, I started to search for a backup tool for Citrix Hypervisor and XCP-ng. Vinchin was one of the backup vendors we found on the internet, the first time I downloaded Vinchin Backup & Recovery was November 2019. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic I had to postpone the test until March 2020.” Says Robert.
“I was using XCP-ng 8.0 version and was intended to back up data to iSCSI storage. By starting test Vinchin Backup & Recovery I was amazed by their support team. I had a few small problems when testing the software due to my lack of experience using this software, Vinchin support team quickly guided me to the right direction and gave me some advice on configuration, so that my test could go smoothly in the later time.” Says Robert.
“In the second round of test, I was planning to test the backup to a disk array device via the ISCSI protocol, but my license was expired soon, so I had a request to Vinchin to extend my trial license for a few more days. No doubt, they gave me an extended license so that I could have enough time to complete my test.” Says Robert. “In the later test, I almost completed the test for all Vinchin Backup & Recovery features, I found it was not only easy to use but also very powerful, it definitely meets all my requirements on a backup tool and even exceeded my expectation.” Says Robert. “Vinchin has brought me a very good user experience. I felt the power of a strong support team behind the software, which made me decide to apply to the management for purchase of Vinchin Backup & Recovery after trying it for 3 months.”
Obviously, the test of Vinchin Backup & Recovery was smooth and satisfied. With Vinchin Backup & Recovery, Robert saved 50% of costs on storage capacity, and more importantly, it saved him a lot of time on maintenance and management of the backup server, he could do more other things instead of wasting time on backup manually.
