Bank of Beirut (UK) Expands Data Recovery Provisions with IBM

Bank of Beirut and IBM have completed the implementation of a five-year agreement to provide a comprehensive recovery solution for the bank’s London subsidiary. The solution enables the bank to consistently and reliably recover its data in a short time frame.

Martin Osborne, manager administration at Bank of Beirut, said: “We faced a challenge every time we carried out a recovery test, having to build our servers from scratch, including loading and configuring the operating system and restoring the data. This created a strain on our IT resources and we realised that we needed a more consistent and reliable data backup and recovery solution to ensure that we could guarantee the bank’s capability to provide increased resiliency and business recovery at times of need.”
