Banking and Finance
Resource and time intensive DR environment that affected frequent and focused failover testing
Zerto based solution for BC and DR
Enhanced business continuity and service to customers while enabling operational and cost efficiencies
Solution delivered in partnership with:
ME, the only bank which is 100 percent owned by 30 Leading Industry Super Funds, services more than 340,000 customers in Australia.
With growing use of their mobile and internet banking by customers, ME’s strategy is continuously focused on uptime. However, the existing DR environment had challenges that affected confidence in recovery and replication.
- DR testing was time and resource intensive with failover only possible for the whole site. As a result, it was difficult to perform a DR Test as often as ME would have preferred
- The DR environment was complex with a significant number of different technologies and skill sets involved in a DR test
- Failover testing did not accurately reflect the reality of a DR scenario
Zerto, as the chosen DR solution, aligned with ME’s IT strategy of virtualised infrastructure. With Zerto, VMtech focused to simplify and automate the entire application protection lifecycle by utilizing hypervisor-based replication, enabling VM-level protection. Today, the ability to test and recover the ME IT environment in an event of a serious disruption improves ME’s resilience and ensures the continuity of business.

VMtech was very crucial to the success of this project. They were able to provide the much needed technical expertise to design and implement the solution, and worked hand-in-hand with the Bank to deliver the solution within tight frames.
