Sydney, August 20, 2015VMtech is pleased to announce that industry super fund-owned bank ME has selected VMtech to extend its enterprise-class recovery and replication platform to continue to guarantee uninterrupted services to its clients.

ME’s IT strategy aims to provide customer experience and operational efficiency improvements to deliver better value to members of Industry Super Funds and Unions. A successful Disaster Recovery (DR) and failover strategy forms an essential aspect of ME Bank’s cost effective and simplified IT processes.

“As a young innovative bank we are continuously looking to provide customers with an experience that sets us apart from larger banks,” said Matt Forder, IT Operations Manager at ME. “We were looking to simplify our existing DR strategy and further reduce recovery time. We had a short window to get the enhanced DR solution up and tested. We were also looking to reduce the costs associated with testing and maintaining our DR capability”

“Working with VMtech has been a wonderful experience every step of the way. They have addressed our DR challenge in partnership with Zerto with a solution that met our needs and beyond,” continued Matt Forder.

“While technology is the business enabler today, an agile disaster recovery platform safeguards a business to continue operations with minimal service interruption. Our solution for ME took into account the criticality of their entire infrastructure and application environment for both offline and online customers, encompassing elements from Application, Storage, Network and Perimeter Security,” said Len Findlay, CEO at VMtech. “Two of our core values are innovation and service excellence. These drive the successful outcomes experienced by ME, not only on this project, but countless previous engagements, so I’m proud of our team for ensuring another successful partnership with one of our most valued customer.”

VMtech’s DR solution for ME Bank was designed and deployed in partnership with Zerto.  

“ME was looking for a platform to protect their entire virtual environment, delivering an SLA that would meet their stringent business-mandated requirements for recovery and testing,” said Andrew Martin, Managing Director APJ at Zerto. “Not only did Zerto enable ME and VMtech to meet these SLA’s, but provided significant automation improvements to reduce operational expenditure.  With Zerto, ME also implemented a future-proof platform that supports application protection and mobility across multiple hypervisor and cloud platforms. Having Zerto as the foundation, ME truly has a next generation DR/BC strategy that will enable the business to reduce risk, increase agility and drive down cost.”
