Pro Photographer Says “I Do” To Data Backup/Protection

gmax-cakeWho do you trust when it comes to safeguarding some of the most irreplaceable, once in a lifetime images possible – the wedding day photos that become the first chapter in the story of every married couple just starting out?

For professional photographer Errol Colon, the answer was easy – he turned to the NewerTech Guardian MAXimus. “I can’t say enough how much I like both your customer service and the Guardian MAXimus,” Colon told us recently.

Mr. Colon continues in his blog:

“I gotta say I couldn’t be happier with the Guardian Maximus system … the new RAID configuration allows us to back up our files quicker, and with 1.5 terabytes per drive of space we have room to spare. The set up is a RAID 1 mirrored configuration so the redundancy is perfect … we picked up two of these guys — one that stays online and another that stays offline, that one not even plugged into the wall just in case of any power surges that gets by our power surge protectors.”

Errol Colon is a cautious fellow: he has a backup for the backup of his backup, saving his clients’ wedding images a total of four different ways, with the Guardian MAXimus being the first line of defense. “Call us paranoid, but we wouldn’t have it any other way when it comes to the safeguard of our clients photos,” said Colon. To us, his approach makes good business sense, as the average cost for wedding photography starts at around $2,000 to $3,000. But more importantly, what is the cost to a professional if they have to tell a client their images are lost?

On his website, beneath a montage of images of happy couples on their happy day, Errol Colon posted one more image that is just as important to him, as the protector of so very many wedding day memories: an image of the Guardian MAXimus.

Now that’s a pretty picture that leaves everyone smiling.
