Bank of Beirut to Deploy IBM Services for Disaster Recovery

IBM (Armonk, N.Y.) and Lebanon's Bank of Beirut (UK) have implemented a five-year agreement to provide a comprehensive disaster recovery solution for the bank's London subsidiary.

Martin Osborne, manager administration at Bank of Beirut said in a statement, "We faced a challenge every time we carried out a recovery test, having to build our servers from scratch, including loading and configuring the operating system and restoring the data. This created a strain on our IT resources and we realized that we needed a more consistent and reliable data backup and recovery solution to ensure that we could guarantee the bank's capability to provide increased resiliency and business recovery at times of need."

According to a release, IBM Information Protection Services are designed to allow clients to prioritize backup, retention and retrieval of data. The services also deliver high levels of security and availability and help address stringent standards for data protection, business and systems continuity, disaster recovery and regulatory compliance. Using pay-as-you-use pricing, it provides robust protection across data centers, branch offices and remote laptops.

The solution is designed to help banks recover data quickly and consistently so they can conduct successful tests and remain compliant.
