This non-profit community organization needed to minimize damage and downtime after an extreme weather event. Centre's assistance in relocating their systems and the backup services they had been receiving helped get them up and running quickly and efficiently.
Weather Disaster Prompts Urgency
A tornado in the greater Dallas area severely damaged the organization's roof, leaving their data centers, hardware, and other technology exposed to further destruction by the elements. Fortunately, the organization had already been using Centre Technologies as an MSP, and they could immediately enlist their help for an efficient and comprehensive response.
SOLUTION AND RESULTS
Cloud Backups and Rebuilding IT Environment
Centre's cloud backup services delivered peace of mind to the customer that their information and applications would remain accessible no matter the condition of their IT hardware. However, the organization still wanted to preserve their IT infrastructure to avoid spending on new systems. Centre assisted in moving the organization's IT environment to another location and setting them up to resume work and minimize downtime. Within 48 hours they were up and running from backups in their new location.
“Our goal was to get them set up and connected to resume operations as fast as possible. We were able to move quickly because we already knew their IT environment as their managed service provider."
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
Building it Back Better
The organization enlisted Centre again in moving and setting up their IT infrastructure once their property was fixed. Centre also optimized their environment during the rebuild by implementing HPE Nimble Storage, a storage solution which promotes application availability and recovery. Moving forward, this organization should subscribe to Centre DRaaS, or Disaster Recovery solutions, for a more efficient and guaranteed response after a disastrous event.
