    IBM solution helps food wholesaler reduce downtime by at least 50 percent

    A wholesale distributor in Asia Pacific was rapidly expanding its business and becoming increasingly more reliant on the quick recovery of its systems. It needed a disaster recovery solution that could reduce recovery time, as well as offer recovery services for its non-IBM systems.
    IBM SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery helped this client improve its disaster recovery plan. The solution not only supported multiple server types, but, more important, helped the company cut its server recovery time by more than half—from 48 hours to 24 hours or less.
