BBVA is one of the largest financial institutions in the world, with IT infrastructure that is constantly growing and diversifying.
Faced with the challenge of effectively controlling its DR/HA environment while ensuring consistent readiness, the company chose Continuity Software's AvailabilityGuard to automate DR/HA management processes and gain immediate visibility into configuration gaps between primary production and disaster recovery sites.
As a result, BBVA has been able to improve operational efficiency and remove one of the major and most common causes of DR and availability failures: the lack of timely identification of impending risks.
Due to the national importance of its services, the General Comptroller Office of Spain has made significant investment in Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) infrastructure.
Despite this significant investment, one ingredient was still missing in the ability of agency to ensure 24x7 service availability.
