QIC Fails Systems Over Seamlessly and Continues Managing Client Portfolios During Brisbane Floods
“Ensuring our systems can be recovered within the timeframes set out in our disaster recovery and business continuity plans—and organising testing of those plans—is now much simpler and less time-consuming. I don’t have to organise a full weekend to test our systems—we can just do it when we need to.”
VMware Technology Creates A Virtual Environment That Maximizes CPU Utilization, Reverses Server Sprawl, Minimizes Energy Usage, And Reduces Carbon Footprint
