POWERED GoInfinit backup and recovery on cloud for a leading Indian life insurance services provider

The insurance services provider uses Sify GoInfinit Cloud for a highly-secure back-up and disaster recovery solution

The Company

The Challenge

Driven by insurance and regulatory compliance mandates, the company was looking for an off-site backup and disaster recovery site in a city located in a different seismic zone from its primary data center. It was critical that they have this secondary site set up quickly, while not compromising security.

The Solution

Since its primary data was being hosted by Sify at its Tier-III Plus data centrre in Mumbai, Sify suggested setting up the company's secondary disaster recovery site at Sify’s Bangalore data centrr, using a secure virtual private network (VPN) and the protection of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Sify’s secure VPN used 168-bit Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES), which is considered secure enough for military use. Since both data centers are on the same network backbone so bandwidth was not an issue. The Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) ― the most crucial factors in a failover scenario ― were just two hours.

Business Benefits

  • Sify’s secure VPN used 168-bit Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES), which is considered secure enough for military use. Since both data centers are on the same network backbone so bandwidth was not an issue. The Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) ― the most crucial factors in a failover scenario ― were just two hours.
  • Besides the cost benefits, the whole process was implemented in just 10 days, which included getting internal approvals, setting up the infrastructure and implementing and testing the service. (A traditional approach would have taken a minimum of two months, which they could not afford.)
  • Sify’s cloud provided a flexible and scalable infrastructure enabling the adding or removing capacity on demand

Customer Speak

"Setting up a similar service in an on-premise data centre would have taken a considerably longer time and cost almost 70 percent more.”
