Lotto Storage

by msecadm4921

Sagitta have collaborated with National Lottery operator, Camelot, to implement a Storage Area Network (SAN).

The SAN provides a storage solution to handle the large amounts of sensitive customer data that will be generated by sales of lottery products online. The solution needed to meet the stringent requirements laid down by the National Lottery Commission, regulator of The National Lottery.

Camelot?s interactive department has been set up to deliver the company?s interactive strategy for The National Lottery. By registering on the website, users can now transfer money into an online account that enables them to play Instant Win Games, the first UK National Lottery games available on the internet. To deal with anticipated demand for these services, the company said it required a new highly scalable, secure and reliable IT infrastructure. Sagitta was asked to recommend a complete storage solution, incorporating enterprise-class disks and tape libraries, as well as a backup and recovery solution to ensure that all the data collected from the website remains secure. Working with the IT team in Camelot?s interactive department, Sagitta designed and implemented a large SAN on an IBM platform. This was followed by ongoing support, training and an intensive testing phase to assess, refine and validate the disaster recovery plan.

What they say

?To deliver such radically new lottery services, we needed a completely new IT infrastructure to reliably store our vital customer and transaction data,? said Rick Harrington, architecture and security manager at Camelot. ?Sagitta?s recognised expertise as a storage specialist made it the ideal partner, with the skills necessary to define the solution that was right for our business and the resources to make it work.?
