Nisa Retail is a £1.5billion turnover company representing 2,500 retail stores across the UK. The company began as a buying group, pooling the purchasing requirements of its members to increase negotiating power, drive down supplier cost prices and create benefits from economies of scale on their behalf. Nisa was the brainchild of two grocery entrepreneurs, who in 1977 launched the company as the Northern Independents Supermarket Association to protect the interests of independents against the insurgence of the national supermarket chains. Nisa is unique in every sense of the word, from its humble roots to its rare, member-owned structure.

If your organization hasn’t yet ex-Technology is key to Nisa’s infrastructure to ensure its deliveries run smoothly and that all its member’s stores are stocked. The impact of losing data or having any downtime on servers is extremely costly to Nisa and its members. Nisa required a backup solution that was not only responsive but also fully compliant with the regulatory requirements for the UK’s retail sector.
After looking at the current business continuity plan, Nisa recognised that the disaster recovery plan for its internal servers was slow and inefficient. In the event of failure it would take days, even weeks to purchase and install new servers and in that time the cost of damage would be hard to calculate. Nisa needed something responsive to ensure its competitiveness in an aggressive marketplace.
The company needed a reliable disaster recovery solution to protect its 31 internal servers, which look after key parts of the business, including email, file and print, bespoke applications, domain controllers, SQL database, application document management, intranet, directory and federation services and electronic data interchange (EDI).
