Vivium Care Group Has Certainty of Recovery Through Multi-Data Center Disaster Recovery Orchestration
VirtualSharp Software, the leading provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, today announced that healthcare provider Vivum Care Group has implemented its flagship product ReliableDR for Disaster Recovery orchestration of critical applications running on VMware vSphere and using NetApp storage. The complete solution was architected and implemented by OneSolution, one of VirtualSharp's premier partners in Europe.
"We are delighted that Vivium Care Group has chosen OneSolution and VirtualSharp to modernize their Disaster Recovery," said Michael Hillewaert, VP of International Sales at VirtualSharp Software. "This successful implementation demonstrates the importance of aligning IT SLAs with critical business functions."
Vivium Care Group is a European specialist healthcare provider that offers its services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including residential care, nursing homes and home care. Due to the nature of its business, 24x7 IT service availability is an uncompromising objective for the organization.
"In case of a disaster, the IT organization must guarantee rapid recovery of all applications and data in an alternate data center," said Wilfred Groeneveld, IT manager at Vivium Care Group. "With replication and backup solutions, we made progress but did not have any certainty that after a restore, critical applications would actually function. By using VirtualSharp's ReliableDR in a VMware virtualized infrastructure with NetApp storage, we now have that certainty."
"The beauty of the combined NetApp and VirtualSharp solution is the testing automation of the recovery site," said Martin Bloem, ICT Service Delivery Manager at Vivium Care Group. "VirtualSharp verifies that the servers and applications are operational, and reports what the total time of the Disaster Recovery process would be. In case of an emergency, we can now bring back production systems with the simple push of a button."
