The City of Calhoun increases the reliability of their digital services by implementing PRIMERGY and ETERNUS systems enabling disaster recovery

"Digital services are important not just for our 150 users but also for all our citizens, so ensuring maximum availability is our responsibility. Fujitsu and Pinnacle NetworX have helped us achieve this."

Customer

The City of Calhoun is the county seat of Gordon County, Georgia and offers a safe and friendly small-town atmosphere with award-winning educational and athletic programs. Conveniently located one hour north of Atlanta and forty-five minutes south of Chattanooga, it has over 15,000 residents.

Challenge

The City of Calhoun relied on 20 aging physical servers to support crucial functions, including the police department, court systems, and utilities. However, it lacked any disaster recovery (DR) capability. It therefore wanted to introduce a modern, virtualized, server environment with in-built resilience.

Solution

The city turned to trusted IT partner Pinnacle NetworX with its requirements. Pinnacle NetworX™ recommended FUJITSU PRIMERGY® and ETERNUS hardware, replicated across two locations. FUJITSU Professional Services was later enlisted to ensure the DR was automated and in real-time.

Benefit

  • In-built resilience ensures optimal availability in the event of failure
  • Ease of management enables IT team to focus on more strategic tasks
  • Smaller physical estate results in space and energy savings
  • Fujitsu ‘Call Home’ feature ensures maximum uptime
