CEO of PBS, Michael Nolan recognized that his organization was going through a growth phase. With it came increased costs, more limited communication and collaboration and a more difficult experience for patients. So, Michael decided to address the growing needs of his business and act. In December, 2016, PBS partnered with Communication Square LLC, a Microsoft Gold Partner. They decided to implement HIPAA compliant backup and cloud data protection with the Operations Management Suite. Doing so proved to be an incredibly smart move for PBS, helping them avoid disaster in June, 2017.
Chief Operating Officer
On-premises data storage brought PBS dangerously close to disaster in June, 2017. Fortunately, they had implemented OMS Backup and Site Recovery. The move saved them from substantial losses in every facet of their business.
Cloud Data Protection
PBS Corporation now uses the System Center Data Protection Manager. This comprehensive level of security better protects PBS while reducing costs, enabling them to increase innovation and productivity. Also, the IT staff is free to work on more important matters, no longer required to maintain data backup. Protection and recovery is part of the Operations Management Suite, which offers a wide variety of benefits. Increase availability with real-time recovery, and enhance security with HIPAA compliant backup. Also, move entire workloads to the cloud with just a few clicks. All aspects of cloud data protection are easily created, configured and managed.
Cloud Backup and Recovery Solution
With HIPAA, PBS was able to protect their application data. Above all, the data could be retained for years without any capital investment and with minimal operating costs.
Replicate On-Premises Data to the Cloud
With Azure Site Recovery, PBS’s workloads remain available during planned and unplanned downtimes. Additionally, replicating workloads ensures that all data is available from a secondary location. If the primary location goes down or faces interruptions for any reason, data remains available and accessible. Also, ASR contributes to disaster recovery by orchestrating the replication and recovery of on-premises Hyper-V virtual machines. This provides a simple failover and recovery plan for workloads. Finally, disaster recovery mechanisms such as SQL server Always On are integrated. This provides a range of recovery plans against workload failure that are tiered across multiple machines.
