Leading the Race in IT Excellence
With the Glasgow Commonwealth Games key on the agenda for Scottish Athletics in 2014, ensuring the security and availability of their mission critical data was more important than ever before.
In order to maintain their excellent standard of service to its members and assure the confidentiality of their sensitive data, Scottish Athletics demand a resilient and robust backup platform to guarantee the availability of their mission critical data.
Following a comprehensive analysis of the market, the governing body chose Onyx Group to deliver a solution on their Cloud Backup platform. Onyx’s reputation for delivering solutions on its own state-of-the-art infrastructure, using leading technology and all with an outstanding level of personal service placed them head and shoulders above the competition.
Powered by Asigra, the industry’s leading cloud backup platform, Onyx were able to replicate Scottish Athletics data between secure Hitachi Data Systems storage vaults at their ISO 27001 accredited data centres in Edinburgh and Newcastle. By utilising the Asigra platform, Onyx were able to provide the organisation with a cloud backup solution unrivalled in terms of security and speed of deployment.
The complete migration process to the cloud was advised and managed by Onyx and continues to be supported by highly skilled and accredited staff via the Onyx Service Desk in Edinburgh. This ensures that Scottish Athletics have one easy to reach, single point of contact for IT related issues.
The cloud backup solution helped Scottish Athletics to:
- Ensure the security and availability of their data by replicating it across multiple geographically diverse locations.
- Benefit from a more cost-effective service by eliminating the capital expenditure associated with managing and maintaining hardware.
- Enhance member confidence by utilising Onyx Group’s resilient core network and industry-leading products.
