Executive Summary

Hystax and Symmetry Corporation, a trusted Peruvian managed service provider, successfully enhanced customer’s IT infrastructure and data protection. Disaster recovery strategy of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru, Mincetur, was significantly
improved with the help of Hystax’s smart and fully-automated disaster recovery software.

Symmetry Corporation, a Peruvian IT provider for cloud, storage, backup, networking, virtualization and high-end computing solutions, offers its customers the best solution to meet their needs and requirements. Symmetry needed to build an effective and reliable disaster recovery strategy for its customer, based on OpenStack infrastructure.

The Challenge​

With low target performance, Symmetry Corporation realized that they needed to move to a faster storage solution to make the processes more efficient. Their customer’s SMTP settings and Linux distributive were both customized as a result of having a non-standard configuration.

Hystax Acura ensured Symmetry Corporation a secure and reliable solution for protecting their customer’s data, enabling IT Resilience and business continuity for the company.

The Solution

Customer workloads and applications were migrated to OpenStack infrastructure for disaster recovery under a KVM hypervisor by Hystax Acura The total data size was over 9TB, including a maximum snapshot size of 4TB. In total 22 Virtual Machines (VMs), were
protected by Hystax Acura’s Disaster Recovery, including various types of workloads, such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle DB.

The Result

High-performance 1-touch disaster recovery software was easily integrated into the Symmetry’s IT environment with individual RPO and RTO values.
