The London School of Economics and Political Science – A lesson in resilience

Fri 13 Mar 2015

LSE is one of the foremost social science universities in the world. It is a specialist university with an international intake and a global reach. Its research and teaching spans the full breadth of the social sciences, from economics, politics and law to sociology, anthropology, accounting and finance and, as the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise found, it has the highest percentage of world-leading research of any university in the UK.

With an existing data centre nearing the end of its usable life, The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) needed to find an alternative data centre strategy which would be cost-effective and help ensure that the university could continue operations in the wake of any unplanned disruptions, whether man-made or natural.

Adrian Ellison, Assistant Director in IT Services says “As with most organisations, our data is very much our crown jewels so we needed the right partner to help us both to protect and ensure 24/7 availability of our critical IT systems. Sungard Availability Services provides us with the most resilient infrastructure and advanced data vaulting solutions available, backed up by a team that really understands our needs.”
