Source: Sun Microsystems
Created by an Act of Congress in 1821, The George Washington University (GWU) supports over 70 research centers and institutes and offers comprehensive programs of undergraduate and graduate study as well as degree programs in medicine, law, engineering, education, business and international affairs. The company's challenge was phenomenal growth that poses scalability issues. The company wanted incompatible systems and files hamper productivity; and wanted to takes days to recover from a disaster. Sun helped GWU transition from tactical disaster recovery to strategic business continuity by migrating its data centers to a Sun-based business continuity infrastructure with increased flexibility and instant failover.
