The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa used physical servers to backup and restore entirely from tape. This traditional tape- only approach involved a complicated restore process and once-per-day backup. There was also high network usage during the tape backup and since the travel industry is a 24-7business, it was difficult to find the “off hours ”needed for a server to be backed up without using excessively more CPU and I/O, resulting in overall slower performance.
By using Double-Take on a VMware virtual infrastructure, Borgata is able to create cost-effective, simplified disaster recovery architectures, provide 24×7 application availability, and follow their daily contingency plan.
