Dominoes falling - Cloud Disaster Recovery - iomart

iomart’s backup specialist Backup Technology has launched ClouDRaaS, a new ‘one click’ Cloud Disaster Recovery Service offering cost-effective, automated DR.

ClouDRaaS from BTL is a disaster recovery service that solves the problem of production-ready DR with one simple click of the mouse. It is based on hypervisor-based replication software from Zerto which does away with snapshots and delivers DR that never impacts performance, with RPOs of seconds and RTOs of minutes.

One of the largest providers of further education in London is already using ClouDRaaS from BTL. Havering Sixth Form College, which has approximately 2400 full-time students, says it has resulted in an improved approach to DR.

Graham Francis, Director of Continuous Improvement at Havering Sixth Form College, explains: “It’s given us an enterprise class DR solution for our production infrastructure with a predictable pricing structure. We didn’t have to upgrade our network, storage or servers and we are seeing RPOs of seconds, with significantly reduced RTOs achieved during the regular testing. ClouDRaaS fits seamlessly into our existing infrastructure and is delivering extremely high service levels.”

ClouDRaaS from BTL offers the following benefits:

  • Quick and remote deployment – DR within days
  • One click recovery and rollback of applications
  • Granular application protection
  • Certified annual managed invocation testing for compliance
  • Reliable invocation and testing methodology
  • Range of options for invocation and connectivity
  • Replication of any environment regardless of storage vendor or architecture
  • Simple pricing model
  • Eliminates the impact of disasters

Matthew Parker, Managing Director, Backup Technology, said: “ClouDRaaS offers that first, safe, step into the cloud by giving you the opportunity to safely evaluate and test the water without having to give up control over production applications in the data centres you are using. It makes effective Disaster Recovery possible within the private cloud, to the public cloud and in the public cloud and because it’s based on virtual replication and is storage and hypervisor agnostic, there’s no need to worry about availability, performance or scalability.”

Sean Casey, Director, Zerto, said: “The global cloud services market is quickly evolving and expanding to include new offerings such as Disaster Recovery as a Service. Cloud service providers have a unique opportunity to help customers overcome inflexible IT infrastructures that are not compatible with disparate technologies because of vendor lock-in. Zerto Virtual Replication is purpose-built to work with any virtualized IT and cloud environment to make it fast and easy to achieve optimal levels of production workload mobility, which is enabling our partners to increase their revenue growth and improve service levels.”
