Philadelphia-based Philadelphia Contributionship, a more than 250-year-old P&C insurer, will use Zerto (Boston) Virtual Replication for disaster recovery to support the company’s data center virtualization efforts.
The company selected Virtual Replication to protect essential servers and applications for its business functions, including accounting, document management and IT support systems, as well as Microsoft SharePoint. The company began evaluating and upgrading these capabilities following Hurricane Irene.
“Our old recovery and testing strategy was a complex ordeal at best, as it put intensive strains on our network and made it impossible to meet the recovery objectives our business demands” said Mark Montagna, IT Infrastructure Manager, Philadelphia Contributionship, in a statement. “Zerto delivered comprehensive data and application protection without any updates or upgrades to our current network or storage infrastructure, simply and affordably.”
Virtual Replication uses hypervisor-based replication, copying data within the virtual infrastructure instead of in physical storage, according to Zerto.
