2 THREE DATA CENTERS TWIN SITES CLIENT STORY OPTIMUM COLOCATION SOLUTION FOR MIDROC When Midroc, which operates within property, construction, industry and environment, selected Sungard Availability Services as its colocation supplier, the option of a two data center solution was decisive. By locating its IT operations in DC2 Stockholm South in Sätra and backup in DC1 Stockholm Center at Gärdet, Midroc reduced its costs, increased its security and freed up IT resources internally. END-TO-END INFRASTRUCTURE DISASTER RECOVERY ENERGY EFFICIENCY OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE Our aim when we changed supplier was to have tomorrow s colocation, and for us that was a supplier able to offer a two center solution. We would then be able to close our own backup data center, which had high running costs, and put our internal IT resources into business development instead, says Leif Gustafsson, IT Manager at Midroc. An incident also occurred at Midroc s own data center when a black fiber cable was cut, making clear the need for a solution outside the company. Being involved in a major incident makes you aware of how sensitive the whole chain is. It is extremely important to have up-to-date procedures and monitoring on site. Midroc surveyed the market and decided on Sungard AS, which was able to offer colocation in two data centers. Our system is monitored 24 hours a day and we have the security of knowing that we can always join forces with Sungard AS if anything was to happen. Sungard AS s staff are clearly experts in the field, and they are really sensitive to our needs, says Leif Gustafsson. On the question of whether more companies should invest in a two data center solution for colocation, Leif Gustafsson feels that it is a strategic issue: It depends on where you want to tie up capital and how you want to allocate your resources. At Midroc we have taken the decision that our IT personnel should work in close proximity to the core business, more as business developers, and find business opportunities based on an IT perspective.
3 YOUR IT INFRA THREE DATA CENTERS IN SWEDEN: STOCKHOLM NORTH, SOUTH AND CITY STRUCTURE IS THE BACKBONE OF YOUR BUSINESS Your IT infrastructure is the backbone of your business. But managing and maintaining multiple mission-critical systems and applications from to Software-as-a-Service and internal applications can strain your resources and get in the way of executing your business and IT strategy. Meanwhile, finding and retaining the right people is a growing challenge. If you re looking for an easier and more cost-effective solution, add Sungard AS to your team. Our Managed Services portfolio encompasses a comprehensive range of solutions, including Enterprise Cloud Services, which are flexible and scalable to meet your evolving needs. Whether you entrust us to manage the infrastructure that supports a single application or all of your data center operations, you can count on optimal security, redundancy and cost-effective expansion capabilities as your IT requirements grow. Sungard Availability Services is opening yet another advanced new data center, in Sollentuna north of Stockholm, to meet customers' growing demand for modern data centers in two locations. The new data center accompanies the state-of-the-art data center that Sungard AS opened in 2009 in Sätra, south of Stockholm (DC2 Stockholm South). Large numbers of customers are requesting twin sites in two locations, preferably with access to a third disaster recovery site. Now it s a reality. With market leading Coromatic as contractor, the data center DC3 Stockholm North in Sollentuna is in operation from February 1st, The data center in Sätra in Stockholm South is highly appreciated by customers and is one of the most advanced, energy efficient data centers in Europe. In 2009 we were awarded "Sweden's greenest data center in competition with more than 50 other data centers. We have utilized the knowledge and experience gained from DC2 Stockholm South in Sätra to design and operate our new data center DC3 Stockholm North in Sollentuna. Colocation Services Our customers will have Colocation Services from DC2 Stockholm South and DC3 Stockholm North. Customers who want to optimize redundancy and resilience choose a twin site with two location solutions. The South and North data centers also offer fully managed, end-to-end infrastructure solutions. Purchase what you need, when you need it, at a predictable cost. Recovery Service Our data center DC1 Stockholm City offers all the options necessary for rapid and cost-effective recovery from any downtime incident. We build the integrated mix of tiered solutions that match your recovery time objectives (RTOs) to your budget. We also help you test your recovery responses. We work closely with you to ensure that you have all the resources necessary to recover in the event of any serious outage. And we advise on everything from recovery strategies to specifics of testing programs.
4 HIGHEST REDUNDANCY AND RESILIENCE WITH TWIN SITE TWO LOCATIONS One secure data center is fine, two secure data centers are even better. Interconnected but geographically separate it constitutes a superior option for increased IT availability. Welcome to the future of colocation! Today constructing a high level of security around your data center is a matter of course for companies and organizations that are dependent on IT operations. If IT support stops, the operation grinds to a halt with major economic consequences and appreciable losses in terms of competition and brand. It is therefore clear that IT equipment and systems must be protected in all ways possible. The building and the rooms that house the servers must have a high fire- and security classification. Redundant supply systems for electricity, cooling and communication must be available that are supplemented by other protective measures that minimize the risk of interruption or intrusion. Geographic risk diversification However, even if the security level for an individual data center is maintained at a high or the highest level, there will always be threat and risk scenarios that it is not possible to entirely eliminate. The capacity to deal with major incidents does not just require practical security functions, but also well worked-out continuity strategies, plans and solutions. Increasing numbers of companies are consequently using geographic risk diversification for increased redundancy. For regardless of which availability requirement applies for a specific activity, an alternative operating environment is almost always required in order to rapidly secure the IT operation if an incident or a disaster was to happen. The two operating environments must be properly separated for maximum security. A twin site solution for colocation is the most secure option A twin site solution is therefore the most secure option for companies that can t afford to allow long interruptions and where the consequences are too great were operations to come to a halt. If servers and systems go down in one center, the servers in the other center are ready to take over. There are not many companies in Sweden that can offer colocation in two data centers on two locations that function as one. We therefore take particular pride in now being able to offer DC2 Stockholm South and DC3 Stockholm North two interlinked, ultramodern and environmentally-friendly data centers that are strategically located in the north and south of our capital. Add to that our data center for Disaster Recovery at Gärdet in Stockholm - DC1 Stockholm City and you have access to a complete range of services and infrastructure for IT availability.
