Problem

A transportation client had DR Mainframe Capacity BackUp (CBU) contract expiring and was unhappy with high costs of new IBM z13 mainframe with added expense of new CBU contract. Top Gun proposed a creative DR solution that allowed the customer to meet project time line and save.

How We Helped

The client bought a refurbished IBM banded/certified EC12 mainframe from Top Gun, saving 72% over new. The EC12 was installed seven months prior to Capacity BackUp (CBU)  expiration, ran with minimal software for six months then purchased a CBU contract.
