Indorama Ventures (formerly Wellman International) needed to address the problems posed by an ageing and increasingly troublesome hardware infrastructure along with the importance of strengthening their systems’ resilience. In order to reduce their carbon footprint, they focused on minimising power consumption, cooling requirements and their dependence on large UPSs.
Following a tender process, Trilogy Technologies was selected as the preferred solution provider. Trilogy implemented a fully redundant virtual private cloud infrastructure. Additional storage is configured on a virtual platform and located in a separate communications room on the Indorama campus. The Storage Area Networks provide Indorama with continuous uptime while also addressing business continuity and disaster recovery.
The complete solution is underpinned by a Trilogy managed service which includes system and application monitoring along with management and reporting via the Trilogy edge/point portal. Indorama now has real-time online replication on its IT systems. This enables the company to respond quickly in the event of any failure or disaster. Should their systems go down, they know that the virtual environment will ensure users experience minimum disruption.
