DataGuard gives peace of mind for Taylor Bowls
Case Study: IT & Cloud Services
Thomas Taylor Bowls has been the leading innovator in the manufacture of bowls for over 200 years. The company combines a total commitment to customer service with a consistent drive to remain at the forefront of innovation in bowls technology.
The company’s products are sold all over the world and research and development is managed from its Visitor Centre in Glasgow, which offers a unique insight into Taylor Bowls’ history and the intricacies of the bowls production process.
After a break in at their HQ in Glasgow, Taylor Bowls asked the technical services team at Castle to develop a disaster recovery solution that would ensure that the business operated with robust business continuity arrangements.
Castle implemented its DataGuard solution that can securely replicate data via encryption and verifies data on a regular basis, hosted at its world class, accredited data centre.
Taylor Bowls’ data is automatically updated every night to Castle’s data centre, so that if there were any problem with the company’s live system, Castle’s technical team could recover their data The company is in the process of establishing an operational Australian base. The new business centre will also be supported via the Bridgeton, Glasgow server thereby ensuring the Australian operations are also Dataguard protected.
Ian Urquhart, Financial Director, Thomas Taylor Bowls, said:
“We have worked with the team at Castle for several years and they have always provided a high standard of support for our business. The introduction of DataGuard gives us absolute peace of mind that in the event of a problem we can have the company’s business systems up and running very quickly
“Any loss of business continuity could be disastrous for us. We have worked hard over the years to maintain a reputation for excellent customer service and product innovation and cannot afford to risk the potential damage that would come from a substantial system failure. Our investment in DataGuard is invaluable when considered in that context.”
George Strathie, Software & Services Director, Castle Computer Services, added:
“DataGuard is a world class standard solution that meets the needs of any business that requires a business continuity plan, providing the best possible security for financial data and systems.”
