Large American county

Industry: Government (local)
Employees: 13,000   

The challenge

A large American county needed to meet audit requirements ensuring it could remotely recover critical SAP-based services in the event of a disaster.

The solution

The IT team deployed Veritas InfoScale Enterprise (formerly Storage Foundation High Availability/Disaster Recovery) software because of its multi-platform support and non-disruptive, high-performance replication.

The outcome

A two-to-three day recovery time objective reduced to eight hours or less, and a projected five days saved annually because of simulated failover tests.
