VyStar Tweaks Recovery Plans for Worst-Case Scenarios
As many credit unions learned recently during Hurricane Sandy, disasters can happen. Especially in storm-prone coastal areas, it’s important for credit unions to have reliable back-up plans for their data should a weather-related catastrophe strike.
That’s exactly what the $4.7 billion VyStar Credit Union, in Jacksonville, Fla., made sure of in 2012. Working with the Blue Bell, Pa.-based technology company Unisys, which had partnered with the cooperative for a decade, VyStar moved its Unisys’ FIS MISER core banking system onto the vendor’s newer ClearPath Server. It also assigned a disaster recovery role to its existing production server, and implemented enterprise-wide automation, replication and storage functionality, according to Unisys.
