Overview

Savanna Energy Services Corp., one of Canada’s fastest growing energy services companies, provides drilling, well-servicing and oilfield services to a diverse oil and gas customer base. It maintains roughly 25 offices worldwide, including Australia and Indonesia, from a single data center in Alberta, Canada.

With only one data center and the use of an archaic tape backup process, Savanna’s IT team had concerns if a disaster were to hit. The company needed to ensure its data was safe with a reliable disaster recovery plan, and wanted a partner to help manage its evolving network.

Savanna’s Global Infrastructure Manager Jim Clarke led the charge. He sought a recovery services provider that would best fit Savanna’s needs— and Clarke wanted to get it right the first time. Working with their local communications partner at Allstream,* Savanna started conversations with Sungard Availability Services to discuss Managed Services and Recovery Services offerings.

Sungard AS now provides Savanna with disaster recovery and Cloud recovery services. Sungard AS helps the Calgary company simplify its IT operations in ways that improve productivity and maximize network performance while managing costs.

Some people consider Sungard AS quite expensive, but I challenge them to go through the process and look at all the costs for disaster recovery. I think you’ll find Sungard AS to be one of the best priced out there.
