Virtualizing a Disaster Recovery Site

When it was time for a multinational instrumentation company to modernize their environment and virtualize their disaster recovery site, they called HP — and HP referred them to MicroAge.

“That’s because we’re certified in HP enterprise, servers, storage and networking,” explains MicroAge’s Hunter Boyd. “HP will often refer a client to a partner like us because they know we can get them what they need.”

The company’s IT infrastructure manager called Hunter, who immediately pulled in MicroAge technical sales engineer David Determan to discuss the client’s existing infrastructure and their goals.

“They wanted new servers that would be more powerful,” David explains. “They had an insufficient and outdated disaster recovery solution, and the DR site wasn’t virtualized. So, they planned to move their production servers to the DR site once they had the new servers in their data center.”

Within the day, Hunter and David gave the client a recommendation.

“We provided them with top-quality enterprise solutions and enterprise-level engineering support almost immediately,” Hunter notes. “The client was surprised by how quickly we worked.”

The client purchased four HP ProLiant servers with the HP-branded VMware Standard Acceleration Kit, and the configured-to-order servers were shipped in just four days.

“Not only was the client happy with the technology solution that allowed him to modernize his production servers and virtualize his DR site, but he received world-class enterprise engineering support in a short time frame,” Hunter adds. “This is why HP trusts MicroAge on big projects like this.”
