INDEPENDENCE, OH (May 28, 2013)—United Computer Group, Inc. (UCG), an information technology services firm, has been chosen to supply cloud-based backup and twenty-four hour disaster recovery protection for national food distributor Reinhart Foodservice. UCG, alongside business partner North American Systems, delivered seamless System i replication for Reinhart’s headquarters located in La Crosse, WI.
All of the data on Reinhart’s IBM server was mission-critical and necessary to recover in the event of a disaster.
UCG’s VAULT400 Cloud Backup and DR solution provided Reinhart with a solid archive service at a lower per year cost than supporting a secondary DR server in Wisconsin. What’s more, the DR provided Reinhart the assurance of a one day or less RTO (Recovery Time Objective) to get operations up and running in the event of a disaster. UCG also created a 24/7 test partition, where Reinhart could analyze and refine software solutions before bringing them live to their local production machine.
With several acquisitions completed the last few months, RFS is growing its reach and relying even more on the IBM i server. In February, the company went live with a new online ordering system, called TRACS Direct, that is designed to give customers more insight into their orders, including the capability to submit and track orders, manage recipes, generate reports, and analyze purchase history against RFS' DB2 for i backend.
By implementing the VAULT400 Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery solution and 24/7 test partition, UCG provided the necessary protection and recovery preparedness to ensure Reinhart’s mission-critical data was securely offsite, encrypted, and always available.
