Worked with key executives to efficiently form a clear solution and do performance analysis to ensure that the services and products they were purchasing would work to their objectives and standards. I was only one of three GSA’s that worked with the CSE’s and were able to call the customer solution engineers (CSE’s) when help was needed or a customer had a special need that had to meet their requirements or products had to be changed or customized.

SRDF/Star is a three-site disaster recovery solution that consists of the Primary (production) site, Secondary site (regional), and the Tertiary site (out-of region). The secondary site synchronously mirrors the production site, the tertiary site asynchronously. In the event of the primary site outage, SRDF/Star allows to quickly move operations and re-establish remote mirroring between the remaining sites. It operates in two modes namely Concurrent SRDF/Star and Cascaded SRDF/Star. SRDF/Star provides the following advantages: •The ability to maintain protection and business continuance despite the loss of any site in a three-site configuration (primary, secondary, tertiary). •The ability to resume asynchronous protection between the secondary and tertiary sites, with minimal data movement, in the event of a primary site failure.
