Sizzling-Hot-Takeover (SZT) Availability for Island Bank


An island bank runs BASE24™ for point-of-sale (POS) and ATM services on HPE NonStop servers. The bank relied upon an untested active/passive business continuity solution for disaster recovery.


The bank needed to replace a legacy replication product, increase application availability, and provide a straightforward method for periodically testing the failover process. The bank also needed to perform a BASE24 application upgrade and an HPE NonStop hardware refresh with no application downtime.
