A&R Logistics: Taking A&R Logistics from crisis to recovery, and beyond – at “warp speed”

Founded in 1969, A&R Logistics is the nation’s largest transporter of plastic resins – and on a mission to grow fast. Backed by US $1 billion in private equity, the Louisville, KY-based company is making significant investments to capitalize on an American manufacturing surge that has its biggest customers – the global petrochemical companies who make the resins – setting up shop and expanding operations in the United States.

When A&R began experiencing unexplained, catastrophic power problems in its Chicago-area data center, the A&R team knew they had to act fast – and fail over their production IT environment to a high-performance disaster recovery infrastructure that would enable A&R to provide uninterrupted service for customers. Designing this infrastructure and support program was Mike Meyer, who worked closely with the A&R team to understand their existing infrastructure and the best means to migrate quickly to a new platform, maximizing uptime.
