Baystate Health Gets the Geodiversity and RTO Its DR Plan Needed
February 1, 2018
Compliance | Customer Stories
With its entire data center operations located near its Springfield, Massachusetts location, Baystate Health lacked geodiversity in its DR plan. Its IT team recognized that if a catastrophic event such as a natural disaster were to occur, the organization would not be able to recover essential applications and data — which could have a significant impact on patient care delivery.
Any solution would have to fit within tight budget parameters, be HIPAA compliant, and meet the health system’s requirements to have operations back up and running in less than two hours. US Signal was able to meet the requirements and deliver additional benefits.
US Signal’s Disaster Recovery as a Service is a fully managed, HIPAA-compliant solution that provides near continuous block-level replication for proven RPOs of seconds and RTOs of minutes. US Signal was also able to provide Baystate Health with an additional DR site in Michigan, giving it the geodiversity it previously lacked.
