When the facilities team at a healthcare organization in the Pacific Northwest announced to the IT team that they were undertaking a campus remodel project and they needed the on-prem data center for office space, the IT team quickly sprung into action to find a new home for their DR environment. From learning of this management decision, to performing a due diligence assessment of their ability to use a DRaaS solution, into an RFI and RFP process, and coming to agreement on a contract, this was one of the most rigorous evaluation projects the company has undertaken. This presentation will describe that journey of evaluation and discovery, including the rest of the story which describes the onboarding process and challenges faced along the way.
