BT Advise Compute reduces risk for gas station operator Terpel as it shifts up to Tier 4 data centre
Reassurance from full redundancy
It’s early December 2014 and Carlos Zambrano has a right to feel uneasy. His company, the Colombian fuel distributor, Terpel, is about to transfer its computing estate to a new data centre. One false move and his business might suffer; not to mention his career.
But he’s dealing with BT, which means it takes just four hours to migrate a vital SAP database and then everything’s back to normal. And service station users don’t notice a thing. In future all they’ll experience is even more resilient IT systems in the only Tier 4 data centre in Colombia … owned by BT.
BT doesn’t only supply data centres. It supplies availability, sustainability and scalability.
- Carlos Alberto Zambrano Smith, Director of Technology Resources and Information Security, Terpel
- Terpel data centres were vulnerable and needed to migrate to a Tier 4 graded facility
- Terpel chose BT after evaluating 26 potential suppliers
- Data migration was achieved inside 22 hours with zero downtime
- More resilient IT infrastructure is underpinning business growth
