The Customer Challenge
- To provide a real time secure off site data storage, backup and retrieval platform locally, so that in the event of a business disruption at the HQ site, all data is stored and easily accessible
- To meet the recovery and continuity contract clauses imposed by customers for new business
- To enable management of the ERP application from a second site within 1 hour of a disruptive event at HQ
A single Gigabit connection is implemented between the HQ and the second manufacturing site. This provides a Local Area Network extension for the organisation.
The Gigabit connection supports the real time backup of the organisation ERP and CRM databases to a second site.
How It Works
The company now has local control of its Business Continuity plan.
The cost of the solution was significantly below that offered by other Business Continuity providers.
The company can pursue business that was previously unobtainable, as they can now meet the data management and compliance criteria imposed by their customers.
