New Zealand Bank Upgrades Its Disaster Recovery Solution to Achieve 99.9999 Percent System Uptime
Kiwibank was using an out-of-date disaster recovery method to ensure the availability of its mission-critical applications to its customers, both internal and external. The bank saw reliability and performance gains through a rapid implementation of Microsoft SQL Server 2014 AlwaysOn and set a path for a high-availability solution to meet its future needs. The initial deployment supports the bank's mission-critical online banking applications. By the end of 2014, the bank plans to migrate the remainder of its line-of-business applications to the new solution.
