Gazprom Marketing & Trading has selected NextiraOne to design, implement and support its new Data Centre (DC2) facility located in Manchester.
This new facility has been implemented as a dedicated suite within a third party Data Centre hosting facility and the solution includes all key Data Centre and infrastructure elements. It is closely aligned with GM&T’s first Data Centre based in London, which was also designed, deployed and supported by NextiraOne. Together the two Data Centres provide critical Disaster Recovery and back-up systems and services for GM&T’s global operations.
Rob Pringle, Director of Global IT at GM&T said: “Continuity of our business operations is absolutely essential. The energy markets are open 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. Real-time information, rapid trading responses and many critical business processes around the globe depend on our Data Centre facilities and our IT platforms working non-stop and reliably.”
“From an IT perspective, the business demands associated with a commodity trading environment and general requirements have changed significantly, calling for increased levels of applications availability, broader geographical coverage and increased resilience in the underlying IT architecture,” said Steven Skakel, Managing Director UK & Ireland for NextiraOne. “We understand how critical this is and work alongside GM&T to ensure its Data Centre and IT platforms can support these business imperatives at all times.”
