BMI FCU Implements New Symitar Failover Service
DUBLIN, Ohio – BMI FCU is one of the early adapters of Jack Henry & Associates’ new hosted failover service for in-house users of its Symitar Episys core processing platform.
Developed jointly by Symitar and Jack Henry & Associates’ Centurion Disaster Recovery group, Hosted Failover provides an advanced, cost-effective alternative to traditional “warm recovery” services, the companies said. Until now, Failover, which is Symitar’s data redundancy solution, has only been available as an in-house solution.
Hosted Failover is operated by Centurion from a secure, underground facility in Branson, Mo., dubbed the “Mountain.” This secure business recovery facility is 175 feet below ground and is virtually impervious to natural disasters including hurricanes, floods and tornadoes. The company said the disaster recovery center provides two separate electrical transmission lines from different providers and boasts multiple levels of telecommunications resiliency.
