SAP as a tool is core to Netmagic's business operations and thus not having DR was never an option. With the organization scaling and depending heavily on SAP, we were forced to implement DR. With multiple Datacenter's that Netmagic has and access to the huge bandwidth pipe made it easier. With cloud computing and virtualization becoming commonplace it was inevitable that where ever possible, Netmagic being a thought leaders, applications were being moved to a virtualized or cloud environment. It was so much easier to move the SAP DR to Netmagic Simplicloud because of the technology that has been used to build this has VMware, Cisco UCS and EMC. The migration was smooth and we are happy to now say that we have our SAP DR running in the Cloud. We have been able to save so much in terms of hardware and complexity and management. I am sure this will open doors for many other customers with similar production setups who can now setup DR on the cloud and enjoy the benefits of cost, scalability and have a proven DR/BCP in place. Our Next experiment will be to move our production environment to the cloud as well at an appropriate time.
