Flexibility guaranteed thanks to Proact's Disaster Recovery as a Service
Defeating the management challenge
As a leading independent power producer in Africa, which owns and operates utility scale power plants across the continent, a proven disaster recovery platform was paramount. With its head office in London, Globeleq's IT infrastructure had to support staff working across regional offices in Nairobi, Cape Town and Douala, as well as at its eight power plants located in Tanzania, South Africa, Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon and Kenya.
Capability to scale up/down around business needs
Quality service with SLAs defined by you
Staff can step away from daily management tasks
Globeleq wanted to find a managed disaster recovery service provider who had in-depth NetApp expertise. With this combination of skills and expertise in tow, the power producer hoped to enhance the scalability and flexibility of its IT architecture.
After evaluating all of the available options, Globeleq chose Proact's Disaster Recovery as a Service which is built on proven, enterprise-class technologies. Designed to evolve with business and budgetary requirements, this service is underpinned by an OpEx cost model, avoiding significant infrastructure investment in the first instance.
Partnering with Proact has provided us with the flexibility and security of knowing that data and services are able to be restored within a small time frame.
