As RMI's vice president of information systems, Van Rownd, explains, RMI services an industry that's run 24x7, is acutely time-sensitive and gravely conscious of precise trafficking and safety measures.
"Railroads run in a 24x7 world and if we had to take our customers offline for eight or 10 hours, it would be a disaster," he says.
According to Rownd: "Vision Suite keeps our customers' downtime to an absolute minimum.Should a processor go down, Vision Suite allows us to switch the railroad to a backup processor within minutes, and they're up and running again."
RMI also offers a Level Two service, which mirrors the railroad not only between two processors but also two locations.If one location goes down, users can be switched to one of the other locations, ensuring continuous uptime.
Rownd believes the key strength of Vision Suite lies in its powerful role swap capability."The biggest reason systems have to come down are for maintenance," he says.
