Use Case

Ensuring revenue growth with data resiliency

Guaranteeing service with near-zero RPO and RTO disaster recovery

BUSINESS OBJECTIVE

This successful healthcare analytics company wanted to ensure it could offer a 24/7 service platform to customers who rely on the data to care for their patients. How could the company protect critical data, eliminate downtime, and avoid interruption to vital services to protect and grow their customer base?

SCENARIO
  • The company uses large-scale analytics to provide its healthcare insurance clients with data product insights, e.g., matching up patient data with application service opportunities.

  • Analytics downtime could potentially affect healthcare provision and patient outcomes, with life-changing impacts.
CHALLENGES
  • The company’s disaster recovery architecture did not support real-time replication of 1.5 petabytes of business application data.
  • In the event of a disaster, existing batch replication risked data loss due to extended recovery point and recovery time, consumption workload.
