How Blue Connections works with Lenovo

Leveraging Lenovo server and storage infrastructure for the largest wool testing organisation in the world, Blue Connections implemented a Multi-Site Cluster environment to provide seamless failover for critical workloads.

The VMware infrastructure environment provides our client with a single cluster spanning multiple sites, Lenovo server, network fabric, and storage provide the physical hardware platform to make this highly available solution possible.

And with Lenovo xClarity Systems Management monitoring and reporting on all solution elements, the customer has a single pane of management across their complete solution.

The solution has provided zero RPO and RTO for predictive failure events, and zero RPO and 1-2 minute RTO for unscheduled outages between their production sites.
