First Scottish utilizes Hybrid-Cloud relying on PRIMERGY and ETERNUS

"We looked at a number of vendors and Fujitsu was the only company that actually came onsite, carefully assessed our needs and made a considered proposal that met our budgetary requirements."

Mark Rooney Systems Administrator, First Scottish

First Scottish has deployed a hybrid cloud solution based on Fujitsu servers and storage to provide reliable disaster recovery capability in the event of failure.

The customer

Based in Fife, First Scottish provides fast and accurate searches and reports for solicitors, estate agents, financial institutions and local authorities. The company also offers document management solutions to help streamline processes, reduce storage costs and increase accessibility to critical business information.

The challenge

First Scottish’s disaster recovery platform was reaching end of life and no longer fit for purpose. They wanted to find a flexible, reliable and cost-effective replacement that would increase availability and de-risk the company in the event of hardware failure.

The Solution

The company worked with AAG Systems and Fujitsu to implement a hybrid cloud solution encompassing Veeam and VMware running on Fujitsu servers and storage.

The benefit

  • In the event of catastrophic failure, seamless failover ensures First Scottish can be back up and running in hours rather than weeks
  • Regular four-hourly replications combined with a tiered backup approach mean recovery points are more recent and less data is potentially lost
  • TCO is five times lower utilising a Hybrid- Cloud over alternative approaches such as replicating the entire hardware environment or utilising a complete cloud solution
