A leading foreign bank needed a three-site Business Continuity plan for some of its critical applications. The challenge was that they were already using multiple technologies for independent applications. More importantly, all applications were live and there was no possibility of any downtime. We were entrusted with the task of designing, commissioning and maintaining the entire solution.
We studied the applications from their business impact perspective and arrived at a solution using a combination of technologies as required by the RPO and RTO for each application. We used Symantec Foundation Suite and Volume Replicator for replication, HP and EMC storage at the three sites. The architecture was such that all three sites replicated to each other and in the event of failure, the applications would failover to the nearest available site.
The whole solution was deployed in record time and without a single minute of downtime.
