Home to over 600 species, Denver Zoo, is an 80-acre facility located in Denver, Colorado’s City Park. The organization is committed to state-of-the-art animal care, global conservation efforts, and groundbreaking sustainability operations. Because the organization had an antiquated backup IT solution relying upon tapes, it was not able to quickly recover its critical data when and if ever needed. The tape backup process took a significant amount of time to manage, and it was also costly to place the backups offsite on an ongoing basis.
Denver Zoo needed a way to upgrade its overall disaster recovery capabilities, so that in the event of a major catastrophe, the organization would have backups readily available and be able to rapidly restore its IT environment.
When Faction first approached Denver Zoo, the timing couldn’t have been better. Denver Zoo was in need of a collaborative partnership with a cloud provider offering personalized customer support and an Enterprise-Class, highly available cloud platform. Faction’s team, with a mission of supporting the local Denver community provided all of the software licensing and the physical infrastructure needed to host the replication solution.
“Faction’s team has a passion for serving and helping our local communities. We were thrilled to be given the chance to work closely with Denver Zoo to provide a reliable backup and recovery infrastructure in which
the Zoo can ensure its critical systems are covered,” stated John Drake, Senior Vice President of Sales for Faction. “Faction also provided the Zoo with a viable foundation in which it can more readily move forward with future technology upgrades and expand its overall IT capabilities. We look forward to exciting things ahead for this treasured organization.”
