Marking its first step towards the cloud, Transport Corporation of India (TCI) implemented a disaster recovery solution on the cloud. The primary business goal was to increase operational effectiveness, improve security posture and better customer experience.
The organization, on its cloud journey, moved from a Capex to an Opex model. The entire revamp was carried out by first redesigning the datacenter setup, and then mapping it with the disaster recovery solution to be implemented. The results include reliable backup on cloud, without the hassle of manual backups and restoration. Also, in case of a disaster the production data will remain safe, which is a priority for all stakeholders – the board members, internal and external members.
The other benefits of implementing DR on cloud include upgraded applications, reduction in costs, performance improvement and increased visibility of server performance and data security.
