Mrs. Mac’s Achieves RPO of Seconds with Zerto

Since the late 1980s, Mrs. Mac’s has seen vast growth in distribution, new technology and products developed. Their products are sold throughout Australia and New Zealand and their range has grown extensively in recent years.

Mrs. Mac’s previous snapshot-based back-up solution couldn’t deliver the RPO/RTOs required to guarantee continuous availability for their fast-growing business. They also needed the ability to recover from ransomware and other disasters, but with both production and their DR site in the same location this would be difficult.

Find out how Zerto and Zettagrid helped Mrs. Mac’s achieve RPOs of seconds and the ability to recover in the event of an outage or disruption. “With our existing DR solution, we had an RPO of about an hour. This really wasn’t acceptable for us moving forward with our dependence on our IT systems. We are now replicating to SecondSite with Zerto and have an RPO of seconds.”

– Josh Pierre, IT Manager, Mrs. Mac’s Pies

Three Initiatives that Drive Up Infrastructure and Storage Value

As decision makers and architects grapple with these issues, they face demands on a number of fronts. The complexity of infrastructure planning continues to rise, along with the complexity of managing and maintaining resources once they are in place. At the same time, they must streamline the value they get from existing capital budgets and data center space, power, and cooling to accommodate demands for growing infrastructure. The complexity of storing, moving, and managing data also becomes more complex in cadence with its volume and diversity.

This document suggests a few initiatives as a starting point for IT decision makers as they consider how to meet these demands and position themselves and their environments for current and future strategic success.

The Case For End-To-End Security Solutions For Mid Market Firms

In a digital business, processes are rarely, if ever, confined to the infrastructure of the company. Customers and employees engage across numerous digital channels and dozens of third-party relationships critical to operations. IT leaders must rapidly evolve to protect their firms’ brands, strengthen their reputations, and build customer trust. To do so, security and productivity should go hand-in-hand, and that means a well-defined policy framework, metrics that demonstrate business value, and a business-aligned strategy that ties all this together.

Managing Security Risk And Compliance In A Challenging Landscape

Security leaders have been in front of boards and executive committees long enough to know that security metrics that simply portray statistics from monitoring tools, or count the number of malware attacks, add relatively little value to strategy and budget decisions. Protecting sensitive customer and company data shouldn’t be just a compliance obligation, it should be a business imperative. This is exactly why the right technology partners will help push security, risk, and compliance objectives forward.

In March 2019, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the evolving security trends and technology needed to protect and enable employees. Our study found that empowering employees while adhering to security protocols improves employee productivity. Forrester conducted an online survey of 887 senior business and IT decision makers to explore this topic.
