Virtualisation helps city with disaster recovery plans

Following on from the news that the city of Aurora, Colorado had gone virtual with its IT systems, the local government in Pittsburgh has boosted its disaster recovery strategies by using virtualisation solutions from market leader VMware.

With automation and high availability its two main goals, the city used vCenter Site Recovery Manager to shore up mission-critical IT infrastructure.

Alex Musicante, the city of Pittsburgh's network analyst, commented: "Business continuity is clearly top of mind for many of the agencies and constituents that we serve.

"Virtualisation has made it financially feasible for us to implement comprehensive disaster recovery and application resiliency strategies."

The local government is one of a number of organisations to use VMware in recent months, along with Post Danmark, Portaal and Canterbury Christ Church University.

This is in addition to airline giant bmi, which is to host as much as 90 per cent of its IT system infrastructure on VMware's vCloud platform.ADNFCR-1984-ID-19007977-ADNFCR
