The challenge

The challenge

Like many public sector bodies, Surrey Heath Borough Council is undergoing an end-to-end transformation of its business and IT portfolio with the aim being to transition, where possible, to a ‘cloud first’ IT services methodology. The goal at the council is to ensure that IT services are cost effective, highly available and highly secure.

The solution

The solution

Taking into consideration key requirements such as the need for enterprise grade service recoverability in the event of an outage, a zero-data loss target and conformity with the council’s ‘cloud first’ approach, Proact proposed a service based upon technology from Zerto in tandem with a DR platform built using resources deployed in the AWS cloud.

The proposed platform provides the council with a business continuity and disaster recovery solution that delivers replication of mission-critical applications and data as quickly as possible.
