Kinetek’s backup and recovery solution for Campbells

The benefits of our virtualisation and managed recovery solution

  • We reduced the time and costs Campbells were burdened with in managing and maintaining their aging hardware. We achieved this by removing and replacing multiple servers with a single virtualized environment. This had the added benefit of reducing their power costs.
  • We significantly reduced the time it takes to commission new virtualised servers. In doing so we enabled the rapid implementation of new solutions to increase business efficiency.
  • We eliminated downtime for server maintenance, which has saved Campbells’ the overtime costs that are often associated with ‘catching up’.
  • We automated daily backups to increase reliability, and reduce management and license fee costs. Campbells now have a simplified and fully automated process that is monitored by us.
  • We ensured Campbells’ data security by utilising a complete off-site replication to a secure data centre with unlimited restore capabilities.
  • We implemented a highly resilient, fully managed Disaster Recovery (DR) Solution, based on the latest Dell hardware. It replicates Campbells’ entire IT environment to a leading UK Data Centre.All key servers are on ‘live standby’ allowing the business to be fully operational within 4 hours of a serious failure. Campbells can be confident that if disaster strikes, access to their IT systems is no longer a barrier to their continued trading.
  • We save Campbells time and money by identifying potential problems across their infrastructure. We then resolve these problems before they can impact their business.
  • We enable Campbells to ensure their business processes are on track, and their customers receive their orders on time. We do this using our PRTG network monitoring service to ensure Campbells’ networks systems are highly available.

“Kinetek Solutions has consistently provided us with a quality IT support service. Having a partner that can be contacted even out of normal business hours is of paramount importance to us.”
