Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana needed to find a disaster recovery (DR) solution that could be easily tested and could stay in sync with their production systems. The way they had been managing DR in the past took too many hours and configuration changes to keep the recovery site in sync with the primary site.

Preparing for a disaster recovery test took months and last year it became clear that managing DR internally was an expensive venture. Goodwill decided to modernize their approach.

In this case study, you'll learn how:

  • Cloud-based Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS) saves time and money in comparison to traditional disaster recovery approaches
  • Goodwill tests disaster recovery quickly and easily with the help of their partners at Bluelock
  • Coupling a dynamic networking solution with RaaS amps up scalability
  • RaaS gives Goodwill more confidence than ever before

"Unlike the previous solutions we used, with Recovery-as-a-Service, we don't have to worry that it won't work a year from now. We have confidence our recovery plan will work when we need it, no matter what."

Jeff Ton, SVP of Corporate Connectivity & CIO, Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana
