Having worked closely with Tayto for over 15 years, we already had a deep understanding of the Tayto network and infrastructure. We were aware that Tayto’s ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system and Exchange, based at the company’s Tandragee headquarters, were vital to continuous production. To ensure the highest levels of protection for these mission critical systems Telefónica Tech established a dispersed Disaster Recovery (DR) site utilising Zerto for disaster recovery and replication.
Zerto virtual replication is a powerful disaster recovery solution for virtualised infrastructures that includes replication, recovery orchestration and automation. This means that should Tayto need to activate their disaster recovery procedures, they can recover one, all or a subset of their virtualised applications from their storage.
Tayto had also implemented a full MPLS (multiprotocol label switching) with hosted firewall which facilitates and enhances their disaster recovery operation.
This solution ensures that the company’s production can continue to operate in the event of the failure of any of their hardware or applications. As a company with around £200 million turnover, every hour of business lost to IT downtime could potentially cost over £22,000. Working with Zerto for disaster recovery gives Tayto an actual RTO (Recovery Time Objective) of 120 seconds on their ERP server, so that potential loss never becomes a reality
