Financial Services firm replicates to Microsoft Azure for DRaaS
“The solution has really taken a burden off the internal IT team”
Armstrong Watson is a UK top 30 Accountancy firm, specialising in financial and business advice, accountancy, tax, investment, payroll and corporate recovery. It has over 400 staff working across 12 sites, with offices from Leeds to Glasgow.The consequence of any downtime for VLS is severe so it needed to improve its legacy Disaster Recovery solution to reduce Recovery Time Objectives of 24 hours.
After suffering from three floods since 2005 at its Carlisle HQ, Armstrong Watson required reliable Disaster Recovery without additional management overhead.
Databarracks set up managed DRaaS for key VMs from Armstrong Watson into Microsoft Azure using Zerto.
