Managing logistics with cloud computing
IT has been instrumental in enabling a specialised logistics company to grow its business and handle the increasingly complex needs of its customers. To improve data security they chose a managed cloud service from Fordway to provide their specialised applications to virtualised desktops, with 24×7 monitoring and support and a fully managed DR service.
The solution has successfully delivered the logistics company’s two key requirements: security and disaster recovery. Data is held securely at one of Fordway’s UK data centres and is snapshotted and replicated to the company’s back-up site so it can be restored quickly if required. SLAs have been agreed and are closely monitored by Fordway. If there are any problems at the logistics company’s facilities, such as a power cut, staff can log onto their virtual desktop from any location.
