Established in 1985 and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, Challenger Limited issues annuities and provides investment products and services. They want to provide a disaster recovery infrastructure that can cost-effectively meet business requirements for fast recovery and minimal data loss. They choose VMware to overcome these challenges. They implemented a dual-cluster VMware infrastructure at about one-third the cost of a physical disaster recovery environment enabled Challenger Limited to cut recovery time objectives from 24 hours to less than four hours and recovery point objectives from 24 hours to less than 90 minutes. The results of deploying VMware were improved recovery point objective from 24 hours to 90 minutes and recovery time from 24 hours to less than four hours.
