Colt supports Netgroup with colocation and connectivity for a customer’s customer.

Many large enterprises in Denmark – especially those that operate in regulated industries such as life sciences, pharmaceuticals and financial services – choose to work with one of the country’s leading IT outsourcing providers. To help its customers comply with data security, disaster recovery and other policy and regulatory requirements, the provider ensures security and resilience are built in to the infrastructure, hosting and connectivity solutions it designs and delivers. In most cases, this means implementing secondary – or backup – infrastructure that can take over from the primary infrastructure if required, and allow business to continue without interruption. The outsourcing provider often chooses to house customers’ secondary infrastructure in data centres owned and run by Netgroup, a local managed hosting provider.

Safeguarding valuable IP
One customer had disaster recovery needs that went further than most. It wanted to ensure the security of – and uninterrupted access to – its critical data and applications in the event of either:
• A failure at both the primary and secondary hosting locations
• A security breach requiring shutdown of both the primary and secondary infrastructures

“The customer’s data includes a great deal of valuable intellectual property,” says Steen Andersen, Key Account Manager at Netgroup. “They wanted to be sure that, no matter what happened, their data wouldn’t be at risk and they wouldn’t lose access to it.”
To meet those needs, the outsourcing provider gave the customer the option to implement, at any time, an additional backup solution at a facility separate from its own data centre infrastructure – including Netgroup locations.

Under the terms of the contract, the solution had to be up and running within three months of the customer’s request.

Delivering a project like this in six weeks was extremely fast – the fastest Netgroup has ever achieved.
It was only possible because of the willingness and effectiveness of the teams from both Colt businesses
