“We service over 2,700 clients in the Houston area alone,” said Bill Cope, Network Analyst. “We cannot rely on building power as was proven in March of this year. For more than 12 hours, our building was without power and all systems were down. Also, our equipment was already overloaded and we could not support any new equipment. We were undergoing a major hardware upgrade and needed additional conditioned power and runtime.

“Our network consists of over 30 Compaq servers and a backbone of Cisco routers and hubs,” said Cope. “Our servers (protected by Symmetra) are essential to our tax, audit and business consulting practices. When the tax practice is without computers, $35,000 per hour in revenue and production is lost. We need APC Symmetra to help us keep our platform stable.”

“Installing the three APC Symmetra units provides a well-rounded solution for our disaster recovery plan,” said Gready Hunter, Novell Netware Manager.

“The Houston office of Arthur Andersen has now established an internal best practice…with the implementation of APC’s Symmetra,” said Steve Blanding, Director of Technology.
