Disaster Recover as a Service for Irish Manufacturer


Disaster Recover as a Service for Irish Manufacturer


Barclay Chemicals is a family-owned, Irish company that has specialised in supplying crop protection products for over 30 years. Based in Dublin, the company’s fully-integrated site delivers registration, manufacturing & distribution throughout Europe and beyond. Barclay prides itself on understanding and fulfilling its customers’ needs using the highest quality standards and dedicated service.

The Business Continuity Challenge

Barclay needed a disaster recovery solution that could get its systems back up and running in minutes. The company had been unable to find a solution to meet its Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) requirements. Moreover, the organisation’s previous solution, had a large overhead cost. Barclay needed a solution with minimal downtime, minimal disruption and an RPO and RTO measurable in minutes, not days!

The Business Continuity Solution

Stryve designed and implemented a Disaster Recovery solution that was cost-effective and caused zero disruption to the business. Unlike previous solutions, Stryve’s Disaster Recovery offering exceeded Barclay’s RPO and RTO requirements. Moreover, it ensured that, in the event of a disaster, the organisation’s systems would be back up and running in seconds. Another key offering of Stryve’s solution was continuous availability and support. Above all, Stryve simplified the Disaster Recovery process and implemented a solution that not only met Barclay’s expectations but exceeded them.
