BANGALORE, INDIA: IBM announced that Fullerton India Credit Company Limited, a non-banking finance companies (NBFC), has selected its SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery, a cloud-based disaster recovery service.

“Disaster preparedness and recovery is imperative in today’s world. The implication of any business ‘interruption’ is costly and significantly impacts customer service,” said Anoop Handa, Executive Vice President/CIO, Fullerton India Credit Company. “IBM has offered a business resilience strategy to make our infrastructure highly resilient in a cost effective way, reducing recovery time, and seamlessly protecting our critical data at an alternate site.”

Fullerton India has over 350 branches across India, operates in 300 towns and cities and over 12,500 villages across the country and has nearly one million customers. The company’s critical applications run from a data centre in Navi Mumbai.



IBM SmartCloud Virtualized Server Recovery will enable Fullerton India to recover data and infrastructure during times of disruption. The disaster recovery solution will be hosted in an IBM managed data centre in Bangalore. IBM will also perform 24/7 monitoring and management of the hosted infrastructure, says a release.

“The enterprise-grade cloud can help clients-even in the most mission-critical situations such as disaster recovery– gain more efficiencies in their business,” said KS Raghunandan, Director, Integrated Technology Services, Global Technology Services, IBM India/South Asia. “By taking advantage of this cloud service, Fullerton India will not only be able to reduce server recovery time but also ensure high availability and increased operational efficiency, without the typical capital investments required in a dedicated infrastructure for disaster recovery.”
