Guarding against server and site disaster

With systems key to operations, CNC were asked to implement Disaster Recovery and Data Backup processes to reduce the risk of business downtime

THE REQUIREMENTS

This Electrical Maintenance company based in London required an upgrade of their aged IT and someone to manage it for them.
As a result of expansion the new multi-site company was leaving the legacy IT infrastructure behind.
As the IT became increasingly critical to the business guaranteed uptime and recovery from disaster was required.

THE SOLUTION

CNC installed leading edge systems and provided on-going management and support.
IT was consolidated to head office with Citrix used for guaranteed remote application access across all sites.
A 2nd Site Disaster Recovery Solution at our Data Centre was put into place to ensure systems could be restored with 4 hours of any outage or local site disaster.
Tape backup of data was replaced with an automated Remote Backup solution requiring no manual intervention.

THE TECHNOLOGY

  • ServerCare
  • ServiceDesk +
  • 2nd Site DR
  • 2nd Site DB
  • CNC Broadband
  • Citrix

THE RESULTS

Key systems and data are protected against local and site disasters giving peace of mind to business execs and minimising business downtime.
IT and applications are now aligned to the new distributed organisation and management can more effectively manage all employee use of systems.
System management is consolidated and centralised thereby reducing on-going support costs.
