Primex3 Works With Broadleaf to Improve Application Availability and Disaster Recovery

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  Broadleaf, a leader in designing and implementing vendor solutions for data storage, virtualization and WAN optimization, announced that Primex3 engaged Broadleaf to achieve better application availability and disaster recovery for audit compliance. The organization was also having challenges with their current shared storage and was looking for an enterprise class storage solution to support virtualization.

Broadleaf's recommendations for server virtualization and an enterprise class storage solution enabled Primex3 to achieve their goals. Server virtualization removed hardware dependence and allows servers to be restarted quickly on other physical hosts either at the primary site or a disaster recovery site as needed. An enterprise class SAN has provided increased reliability, flexibility and ease of management. Space efficient snapshots give Primex3 the point in time state of the storage system onsite allowing for prompt recovery of data in any type of onsite data loss. For offsite protection, Primex3 has a virtualized server in a remote site and they ship images there from the primary site's virtual machines to be ready in case of disaster.

Steve Lavoie, IT Manager for Primex3, noted that "the server virtualization and shared storage recommended by Broadleaf has allowed us to achieve the improvements we needed in application availability and disaster recovery within our budget. The Broadleaf team worked closely with us throughout the project all the way from design to implementation to knowledge transfer."
