IBM announced that it has built a disaster recovery site using IBM Cloud infrastructure, intended to help KAZ Minerals, a leading copper production company in Kazakhstan, protect and maintain operations, even in case of a disaster. The disaster recovery site was built using IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers and VMware Site Recovery Manager with vSphere Replication. The solution is designed to automate the processes of migrating, recovering, testing, re-protecting and failing-back virtual machine workloads and achieve target service level objectives. The hybrid cloud approach to combining disaster recovery site in cloud with the on-premises data center will position KAZ Minerals to efficiently restore mission critical business applications, including enterprise resource planning and analytics, in case a disaster affects the data center.

By using IBM public cloud, the company will be able to take advantage of the native redundancy, scalability, availability and flexibility of the cloud platform. In addition, by running its disaster recovery system in the cloud, KAZ Minerals is able to avoid spending on additional IT infrastructure associated with setting up an on-premises system.

KAZ Minerals is a high growth company focused on large scale, low cost open pit copper mining in the CIS region, and with a track record for the successful delivery of greenfield mining projects. With natural disasters globally becoming more common and unpredictable, the company needed to update its business continuity planning, so it turned to IBM to develop a cloud-based disaster recovery site for its on-premises data center.
