KISTA, Sweden – April 25, 2016 — / — A leading British train operating company have chosen Proact as their partner to deliver Disaster Recovery and Backup as a Service from their Managed Cloud Service portfolio.

The company were working with an ageing infrastructure to support DR and required urgent investment to bring it back in-line with a recent primary infrastructure upgrade and to ensure the company’s services would continue to run effectively. It was clear the company needed to find the right solution to this issue, but more importantly the right partner to deliver this and to address their longer term goals.

The company required a partner that could demonstrate a mature Cloud services portfolio, extensive industry references and a proven approach that they could deliver on the companies specific requirements. Proact successfully demonstrated all of these, and also offered the lowest TCO over 3 years when compared to the competition.

Proact will now be responsible for DR and Backup services for the train operating company’s IT infrastructure. This will remove the primary site issues the company were experiencing and ensures the company can keep their services running smoothly and on-time. In additional, a framework is now in place for the train operating company to realise long-term objectives. This includes the migration of more services over to Proact with a view to remove the primary DC on their site by the end of 2017, delivering increased business agility.

This is yet another example of Proact’s continued ability to deliver market-leading solutions and further underpin their corporate strategy to deliver business agility to their customers.
