Source: Cisco Systems
Jack Henry & Associates needed to move the 3 TB database to its own data center in Houston, Texas. After moving the workload to Houston, the IT team would need to integrate it into industry-leading business continuity architecture, which uses data replication to a disaster recovery facility in Allen, Texas, approximately 260 miles away. JHA met both goals with a single capital investment, the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Director Switch and Cisco MDS 9000 XRC Acceleration Package. Moved 3 TB of mission-critical data during short change window, Gained Point-to-Point Remote Copy (PPRC) and Extended Remote Copy (XRC) replication capabilities in one device with accelerated recovery point and recovery time from hours to minutes and gained ability to manage critical disaster recovery solution with internal resources.
