Top 100 Accounting Firm Achieves 99.999 Percent Uptime for Their Email Infrastructure

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - SingerLewak, a leading regional accounting services firm headquartered in Los Angeles, California has achieved five nines uptime for their email infrastructure by using the Teneros Always-On High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions for Microsoft® Exchange. Rob Krumwiede, chief information officer at SingerLewak said, "We have had Teneros systems in place for more than two years now and have not had a single instance of messaging system unavailability."

The Teneros Always-On SaaS Solutions provide capital expenditure-free email continuity for Microsoft Exchange, and are delivered through a hosted data center or a secure Always-On onsite appliance. The offering provides corruption-free replication of Exchange email data, combined with Instant-On failover recovery of Exchange services when production systems become unavailable or fail. Together, these unique features ensure reliable, immediate and transparent email access whenever disasters or planned and unplanned email outages occur.

SingerLewak is a leading provider of accounting and management consulting services to multiple sectors. With hundreds of employees spread across six locations, the firm relies on Microsoft Exchange messaging infrastructure to communicate and collaborate with employees as well as clients. "When our accounting and consulting professionals are in the field traveling with their Smartphone or at their desk using traditional messaging applications, they rely on Microsoft Exchange email infrastructure," stated Krumwiede.

"Our IT team at SingerLewak evaluated different options to provide high availability and disaster recovery for the messaging infrastructure. The Teneros products outshine and outperform their competition in every way. The Teneros comprehensive approach to messaging continuity makes it easy for IT management to protect not only our critical, core Microsoft Exchange systems, but ancillary applications such as BlackBerry® and Smartphone systems as well. Their messaging continuity systems assist our IT technologists in maintaining cohesive communications with our clients at all times," continued Krumwiede.

SingerLewak has deployed both the Always-On High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions for Microsoft Exchange. The Teneros service has provided continuous email uptime through planned maintenance, server failures or site level outages. Krumwiede also notes that in addition to providing failover protection, the Teneros service provides 24X7 monitoring and management, thereby lowering IT costs dramatically. "We are very pleased with performance of our systems and as a result, always feel confident in our ability to serve our clients," concluded Krumwiede.
