Saunderson House Partners with PHD Virtual to Protect Data and Keep Systems Online and Quickly Recoverable in Case of an Outage

PHD Virtual Technologies, a pioneer in virtual backup and innovator of disaster recovery assurance solutions, announced today Saunderson House, a 2013 Investment Week’s Fund Manager of the Year award-winning chartered firm of independent financial advisers, is utilizing PHD’s Recovery Management Suite for data protection, and automation of disaster recovery testing, failover and failback. PHD’s Recovery Management Suite includes the award winning PHD Virtual Backup with CloudHook and ReliableDR.

Saunderson House initially switched to PHD ReliableDR because its previous provider was complicated and required a lot of configuration. The company has a VMware Enterprise environment powered by Nimble storage and utilizes DoubleTake for replication. With 1,300 clients, £3 billion GBP under management and a fee-based system, Saunderson House needed a partner that could get them back online quickly and easily should an outage ever occur. Saunderson found that partner in PHD Virtual, who provides this service and guarantees recovery for this essential system. 

“If our systems aren’t working, we will lose hundreds of thousands of dollars per day, so it was critical for us to find a partner that provided great data protection, and guaranteed failover and recovery,” said David Pritt, IT Director, Saunderson House. “We love the PHD Recovery Management Suite because it provides powerful data protection, automates the DR testing process and provides peace of mind that the replicas are valid and will come back online, should we ever have to failover to them. While we are thankful that we haven’t had to failover in a real world situation yet, we used ReliableDR in the last DR test and it passed with flying colors.”

“For Saunderson House, time is literally money, so they need a backup and recovery partner that has a solution that is easy to run and reliable while guaranteeing data recovery to get them back up and running in just minutes in a crisis,” stated Joe Noonan, Senior Product Manager, PHD Virtual. “Saunderson House management supports innovative infrastructure, and we are very happy that they have chosen us as a partner to meet their backup, recovery, failback, failover and reporting needs.”
