Andy and the team were able to successfully meet the demands of a major disaster recovery for a client in South Africa using servers in the UK. The client, a global Oil Production operation had a software development team based in Capetown with all source code and changes to their development system on an IBM AS400 located in a secure UK data centre. Time was critical and despite being 3 rd to quote for the disaster Andy was the only company able to offer the recovery in the timeframe needed. Despite other contractors offering cheaper quotes, and another quoting upfront fees, Andy and his team were chosen after recommendation form another similar case proved that this recovery could be done in the UK and within the 24-48 hrs over the weekend window required. Needless to say the recovery was complex and required some unique scripting due to the unusual block size used by the IBM drives. The lab at Security House is one of the few in Europe and indeed worldwide with the capacity to image over 50 drives with bad sectors using specialist equipment simultaneously. The actual recovery was completed within 16 hours of arrival and within 24 hours of engagement late on a Friday afternoon.
