Overlooking the water in Tampa, Fla., Tampa Bay Sports and Entertainment’s Amalie Arena is home to the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team and more than 150 events each year including sports competitions, concerts and family shows.
Florida’s severe weather patterns posed a significant threat of outages and service interruptions. As the 5th busiest entertainment venue in the U.S. and 15th busiest in the world, ensuring 100% uptime is critical to delivering an exceptional fan experience.
TBSE partnered with Flexential to deploy a disaster recovery solution that assured business continuity regardless of natural disasters or unplanned outages. The Flexential Recovery Cloud solution replicates data and enables a rapid failover to a secondary location, ensuring that the arena’s business-critical assets are protected and that all business applications remain accessible.
This DRaaS solution is built on leading-edge technologies that enable services to be restored quickly and securely in the event of an application or entire site failure, regardless of the production environment’s location. Recovery Cloud is available in three pricing options to accommodate every organization’s budget. An option also is available for non-mission-critical backup.
“We can be choosy about our partners, and we want to make sure we’re aligning ourselves with best-in-brands,” said Jarrod Dillon, chief revenue officer at Amalie Arena. “We would consider Flexential best-in-brand and that’s why we chose them to work together.”
