Sports Leaders UK

This independent sporting charity is highly dependent on its IT system in order to provide services and support to its clients. We improved business continuity and data protection, by building an effective disaster recovery and business continuity provision from the ground up.

Sports Leaders UK is the operating name of the British Sports Trust, an independent charity funded by income from sales of educational materials, grants for project delivery, commercial partnerships and individual generosity. Through a range of over 20 balanced awards and qualifications Sports Leaders UK reach out to those most in need in society.

The IT system is essential to the organisation and enables clients to register for courses and achieve qualifications. Sports Leaders UK wanted an affordable solution that mitigated the risk of downtime and ensured their data is protected and available when and where they need it most.

“We fundamentally rely on the IT system to deliver services to our clients and simply cannot afford to be without this for any period of time. The Datto Business Continuity solution provided by Microtrading meets all of our requirements for protecting our IT estate and offers the best and most extensive recovery options I have seen. In the event of a problem I know our entire IT system, data and software applications included, can easily be spun up either locally at our offices or in the Cloud at the Datto datacentre within minutes. I spent a lot of time researching alternatives and found nothing as good as this at a price we could afford.”

Michael Howard, IT Manager

Microtrading implemented the Datto SIRIS Business Continuity Solution for Sports Leaders UK. This gives them true business continuity and the fastest recovery timescales of any backup and disaster recovery solution available.
