Anything Can Happen. Be Prepared.

It’s always wise to have the best plan for your worst-case scenario. After all, you have contractual and regulatory obligations to meet. Mission-critical operations and financial transactions to protect. Not to mention technical failures and actual disasters to avoid.

That’s why we offer a variety of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions, including data protection, storage replication, workload replication and geoclustering. Mix them and match them to best meet your needs. We’ll help you leverage our scale to help reduce costs and simplify your disaster recovery solution.

Data protection provides managed backup services that help ensure your critical data can be restored from a local disk-based system. You can:

  • Replicate directories, files and databases each night to a remote location
  • Achieve a recovery point objective (RPO) of 24 hours and a recovery time objective (RTO) of days or weeks
  • Control the amount of data protected and the amount of time it’s retained
  • Realize contractual or regulatory compliance at a low cost.

Premium storage replication can replicate the storage volume to servers in a remote location, providing access to data in an emergency. There are replication frequencies of 15 minutes, one hour, four hours or 12 hours – a great option for organizations that need both an RPO and RTO of less than 12 hours.

Workload replication with VMWare delivers replication options with extremely low RPOs and RTOs for business of all sizes. You can leverage VMware’s Site Recovery Manager (SRM) for a scripted recovery plan that shuts down specified virtual machines and automatically restores them to a recovery site. Or you can use Microsoft Hyper-V Replica for asynchronous replication over broadband and manual failover in the event of a disaster.

Geoclustering is great for companies with an extraordinarily high cost of downtime, such as those that process thousands of transactions per hour. Our national data center platform and premium MPLS inter-data center network maintain active/active geoclustered and globally load-balanced sites with nearly instant failover and RPOs and RTOs of effectively zero.
