Essar Group Implements Sanovi DRM For Recovery Readiness

Sanovi Technologies, the Disaster Recovery Management software provider, has successfully completed the implementation of DR solution for the Essar Group’s production planning and production applications at their Corporate headquarters. Covering critical ERP functions, the Sanovi DRM Suite is implemented across Essar’s primary and DR locations.

Sanovi DR Management Suite is the management solution for aligning DR infrastructure with Recovery Time and Recovery Point Objectives. Essar’s Oil & Steel division runs their production on SAP and their production planning on I2 applications. “The business has mandated a Recovery Point Objective of one hour and a Recovery Time Objective of five hours, which the Corporate IT team was finding hard pressed to deliver before the Sanovi solution was put in place,” said Essar’s Jayantha Prabhu, Head IT – Infrastructure.

“The implementation of Sanovi’s DRM solution had major implications for our Disaster Recovery service operations. This function-rich tool has considerably reduced the effort for regular DR setup monitoring, management, report generation and DR drill activity. Our drill time per-cycle has gone down from 16 hours to four hours, and the team size deployed for managing the drill is reduced from 8 to two engineers,” he said.

For an organisation, that spells considerable saving in terms of manpower costs and down-time required for mandatory DR drills. Essar has streamlined its DR processes and increased its frequency of holding DRM drills to twice a year. “We have taken a productive visionary approach for DR readiness from Sanovi. Sanovi is undoubtedly market leader in DRM owing to their superior technology, customer support and solutions tuned to our industrial requirement,” added Prabhu.

DRM combines monitoring, reporting, testing and workflow automation capabilities of complex IT infrastructure into a scalable, easy-to-use solution built on industry standards. The DR solution for Essar aimed at overcoming the challenges faced by Essar, viz, lack of real-time monitoring of DR Readiness, incident management, application level replication of processes as well as database. Sanovi DR solution automates the DR drills reducing dependency on expertise of individuals and significantly cutting down complexity of the processes. The unified DR management delivers real-time DR readiness validation and offer clear business and operational advantages.

Ashis Guha, President – Global Sales said, “This project marks another significant milestone for Sanovi and further validates our leadership in the DR solution space. We are extremely excited to be undertaking such a large project for one of the country’s leading Corporate houses, that too one that involves rigorous recovery SLAs across various business groups.”
