To ensure compliance with these regulations, Faysal Bank needed the ability to correlate security logs and transactions across systems to gain a comprehensive view. And also have many security filtering policies that determine which individuals at which agencies can access certain data. They needed a way to effectively track those policies. After researching a number of commercial and custom solutions, they chose Sentinel and Sentinel Log Manager to monitor its IT systems in real time. "Building a custom solution would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and would have been extremely difficult and costly to maintain, Plus it would be very likely have had More...

Barret Hodgson was using old conventional method of daily local tape drive data backup method. This approach ensures adequate protection for data in the event of an individual loss of data or of a server. However, recovery from disaster is slow and requires significant effort. It could take between 24 and 48 hours to completely restore a server and the associated backup architecture. The recovery point objective (RPO, the amount of time elapsed between the last backup and the failure) could be as much as 24 hours— the time since the last tape backup—meaning that up to a full day's work might be unrecoverable. To ensure high availability and to reduce the potential loss of data, Barret Hodgson undertook a study to find better ways to protect data. After deploying PlateSpin Protect from NetIQ, creates virtual copies of the protected workloads at specified times, then replicates the changes to a remote copy of these servers. The solution protects both virtual and physical workloads, and dramatically accelerates recovery by removing the need to configure a new physical server and then laboriously restore the systems from backup files.

 

Punjab Beverages existing disaster recovery processes depended significantly on manual input from IT specialists, and the results were difficult to predict. There environment consisted of SAP servers, running Suse Linux Enterprise Server 11.Buy deploying PlateSpin Forge, they don't need to duplicate their production hardware environment or worry about having identical SANs in each data centre: everything they need to protect their business-critical servers is in a single, compact physical frame. The solution takes away all the complexity and unknown factors, and enables them to prove to the various business unit managers.

 

The majority of corporate servers at International Power are based in data centers that are protected by a proprietary disk replication technology supplied by the vendor of the disk arrays. However, some business-critical servers are running in a certain number of national sites. These systems—a set of Microsoft Windows servers. International power undertook a study to find better way to automate the date back up process and with minimum downtime. By implementing PlateSpin Protect, International Power has accelerated and simplified the recovery of critical servers. The RPO has come down from as much as 24 hours to a maximum of three, and the RTO is now down to a matter of minutes from a previous estimated 24 to 48 hours for a traditional recovery procedure.
