Successful Disaster Recovery Mission with iland DR at Friede & Goldman
Friede & Goldman (FNG) is a leading engineering and design firm in the oil industry based in Houston. About a year after partnering with Möbius, FNG suffered a primary controller failure in their SAN and were running solely on the secondary. On a Saturday around 7:30am the building had a major power event that took out building components including elevators and other services. FNG took a big hit and lost their UPS, SAN storage, ESXi hosts, and physical on-prem servers.
Since they already had iland DR in place, it was just a matter of doing an emergency failover to get the production environment up and running and full functionality within a few hours. None of our employees noticed any difference in functionality. Because we had implemented Mimecast message continuity for email, no messages were lost during the transition to the cloud environment. Möbius has helped set up F&G’s VPN, email continuity, deploy a new Wi-Fi system using FortiGate, appliances, new firewall, implemented office 365 and Exchange Online, and more.
Next steps are to complete the setup of our system with full cloud hosted solution through iland.
