About the Epworth School

Epworth is an independent school headquartered in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa set in scenic 15-hectare grounds on the outskirts of Pietermaritzburg. Epworth stands amongst the top schools in the country, catering for all grades from RRR to 12. Their vision is to free the potential in individuals to become relevant, resilient and ethical leaders who contribute to our ever-changing world.


Epworth School required a solution to protect their data as they have a mixture of physical and virtual workload. Being a school, the data they deal with is quite heavy. So they understood the importance to have a backup and looked for a solution that can meet the needs of their mixed workload.


When doing research into a more robust backup platform, Epworth School found Vembu as the best choice at the time, as it supports backup of physical servers, and virtual servers whereas competing solutions were focused on virtual environments.

Ever since implementing Vembu’s solution, Epworth School was able to successfully backup their data, as well as create a robust backup topology featuring offsite backup replication. Also after vembu’s entry, we have been stuck thrice in disaster, and we were in need to restore file backups and have been successful in recovering each time. Without Vembu, we would have been obviously in a messed up situation as recovering so much of valuable data would have costed us an enormous amount of time and cost.
