Unicorn rolls out Double Take to protect critical data
Bahrain's Unicorn Investment Bank deploys Double Take solutions to protect critical data
Islamic financial services group Unicorn Investment Bank has expanded its use of Double Take solution to enhance protection of mission critical data.
The Bahrain-based group has deployed Double Take software to provide replication and back up of its key data assets, including core banking systems, Blackberry Enterprise Server, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The software provides replication of data on critical servers, between the group's two hosting sites, for high availability, and also enables recovery over the WAN.
Antoine Tohme, Head of Information Technology at Unicorn commented: "Our Windows servers are extremely critical to our business, due to the fact that they hold most of our clients' deals and financial transactions, and therefore require a solid and reliable continuous system and data protection solution to be in place. We have implemented a solid strategy that is able to cope with any maintenance and disaster recovery scenario based on real-time data protection, high availability and recovery. Double-Take Software has consistently provided us with the necessary degree of protection to safeguard our clients' financial data."
"An increasing number of organisations are aware of the disastrous consequences that downtime can have on their business," said Wouter Vancoppenolle, senior sales and business development manager Middle East & Africa, at Double-Take Software. "It is vital for financial institutions to invest in business continuity and backup solutions as a way to ensure their clients' financial data remains safe, as well as providing more value back to the business. We have a long history in helping companies in this market to migrate, protect and recover their business systems and data, ensuring that they have best practices in place around their business continuity strategy."
