DLR Group Selects Teneros

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Teneros today announced that DLR Group has selected the Teneros Application Continuity Appliance for high-availability of Microsoft® Exchange to support the architectural design firm's 700 busy email users.

Headquartered in Omaha, Neb., DLR Group specializes in architecture, engineering, planning and interiors projects. The company uses Microsoft Exchange server for its email communications, and 40 percent of its 700 mailboxes are regularly accessed via mobile devices in addition to the desktop.

Before purchasing the Teneros appliance at the end of 2007, DLR group had a monthly average of 30 to 60 minutes scheduled email downtime for maintenance, and it also experienced occasional unplanned email outages. Since installing Teneros, the company has had one hundred percent continuous email availability for its employees.

"I just love the Teneros appliance," said Gin McMillan, DLR Group IT director. "It was very easy and straightforward to install, and it works great, which means that's one less thing my team has to worry about. We recently had an incident where we experienced an unplanned Exchange outage that lasted a couple of days, but our email stayed up the entire time because it was running on the Teneros appliance. So the Teneros appliance has already paid for itself."
