Project Background for Sompo Canopius
Canopius issued a tender outlining their requirements and Cetus Solutions responded. Cetus’s speciality lies with application layer design, delivery and management. They wanted to find a network infrastructure partner.
Canopius Group’s information strategy required a resilient platform with Active-SAN replication to duplicate identical copies of all data and applications to two separate sites. The solution needed to have over 30 applications running over it, including CRM, record keeping and brokerage systems.
Canopius have a single contract and point of contact with next connex for the network and independent data centre infrastructure which covers the entire solution, including SLA’s at both individual sites. This contract includes a failsafe option to move their racks over to another on-net data centre partner site in the extremely unlikely event of a site repeatedly failing its SLA’s; we would just swing the network over.
