Swift action by R-Group during flooding minimises downtime to CPE

Place: Perth CBD  Year: 2016  Services: Onsite Disaster Response, Server Management and Recovery, Restoration of Email Function

When the water tank on the roof of the client premises fractured, water flooded the lift shaft and comms riser resulting in a building power outage which took the healthcare business offline. R-Group account managers and service desk engineers responded immediately:

  • Managed shutdown of all servers was completed within 15 minutes of the request being received
  • Access to emails was restored within 2 hours
  • Engineers were dispatched to retrieve servers as part of the disaster recovery process
  • Equipment was installed at R-Group premises with recovered servers up and running the same day

The timely actions of R-Group engineers together with the considered approach of management when planning the response, resulted in minimal downtime to CPE and negligible impact to CPE customers.


CPE Director Andreas Walewski reflects:

“R-Group’s response to the crisis was simply outstanding. Their quick action and preparedness to do whatever was necessary, including at night and over the weekend in very difficult circumstances, has enabled us to continue operating and servicing our clients with minimal disruption. On behalf of all at CPE I would like to thank Josh, Paul and the rest of the R-Group team for their support during this challenging time”
