Customer Testimonial

I would strongly recommend having [Superna’s Failover Support Observer] for new customers performing their first failover with live data. It’s a stressful process, especially when there are problems. Knowing that an expert was watching the process with us made the experience much less terrifying.

The support personnel that we interacted directly with were excellent. We are much more confident now that we have a successful failover behind us. I want to thank all of you again for working with us to accomplish this.
