Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, located in Belleville, Ontario, Canada, is providing mandatory programs and services mandated by the province of Ontario. They offer a wide variety of health services to the residents of Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. It's about 150,000 people in their catchment area.

They were looking for a really good Disaster Recovery solution, but a lot of times it is a challenge for an SME to implement A) due to the cost and B) due to the complexity of engineering and architecting that type of solution.

They needed a way to recover core services quickly without having to grab a server stand it up, restore from an image. Essentially what they were looking to do with the new Disaster Recovery solution was to improve their RTO and RPO on their core services. The new Disaster Recovery system had to work with VMware and because of the small IT staff the solution should be easy to get in, up and running quickly and easy to support after.

Hastings and Prince Edward Counties chose PlateSpin Forge because it was one of the only solutions that were shipped as a fully configured hardware appliance with the software layer on top to do the data protection services that Hastings and Prince Edward Counties required. It took just half an hour to get PlateSpin Forge up and running.

Hastings and Prince Edward Counties had to use their Disaster Recovery solution twice and in the two times they've had to use it, it worked. It has met the benchmarks that they had wanted of it when they first envisioned putting it in. And it went very simple. So they could not be more pleased with the performance the two times they've had to use the solution. It couldn't be easier.

Installing PlateSpin Forge from NetIQ has, in a nutshell, given them peace of mind, because it's a solution where they know that if there is a man-made disaster, or natural disaster, or even human error, there is that safety net of that PlateSpin Forge environment there. They can stand those course services up again in 20 minutes and know that they've got an effective, easy to use, easy to maintain and most importantly a reliable Disaster Recovery solution for their environment.
