Background 

 

Pegler is well known and respected as one of the leading manufacturers of advanced plumbing, heating and engineering products in the world. It's a reputation earned through a total dedication to quality, innovation and customer service that's been the hallmark of the company since it was established in the 1890’s (originally trading as Pegler Ltd and Yorkshire Fittings Ltd).

 

Their success has been derived from a commitment to a philosophy based on quality, service, investment, competitiveness and innovation. Energy and water conservation is very much at the forefront of product development.

 

Challenge

 

PTG has worked with Pegler for several years, supplying IT equipment and more recently was engaged to review the IT infrastructure, some elements of which were aged and lacked longer term stability and support capability, and which didn’t have the agility needed for a growing manufacturing company. The review considered compute, network, storage, back-up and DR, alongside cloud services.

 

Solution

 

In January 2020 PTG and Pegler identified a need to improve the back up for the existing Microsoft 365 environment, which resulted in the design and deployment of a Barracuda ‘Cloud to Cloud’ backup solution, including cloud archiving, which guarantees data security.  The services are fully managed by PTG and deliver an unlimited M365 backup service.  

 

Following that, in May 2020 PTG designed and deployed a Veeam managed Disaster Recovery (DRaaS) service for all servers, company data and virtual environments. This provided improved disaster recovery and replication services, with improved Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).

 

Having established a design blueprint, PTG is now working with the Peglar IT team on the design of solutions for other sites in the UK and overseas. In summary, Pegler is now in position to enjoy the benefits of more available, scalable, and resilient IT infrastructure. 

 

“With PTG’s support and attention to detail, we now have a sound and stable Infrastructure to build upon. We look forward to working with them on the next phase of the development”
