DISASTER RECOVERY AS A SERVICE
The ability for service providers to offer flexible and affordable Business Continuity and Resilience offerings has long been a challenge in the market place. Customers who wish to enhance the resilience of their IT environments can duplicate complete systems but this is an expensive and inflexible way of protecting critical business data.
With the proliferation of consumption based cloud computing and technology developments, Getronics now provides Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). A flexible and consumption based Business Resilience solution, DRaaS enables a cost effective approach to Disaster Recovery and negates the need for customers to purchase and maintain a replica of the production environment.
From IT Service Continuity Management consultancy, implementation, operation and support, Getronics utilises innovative technologies to provision a service that delivers enterprise grade Recovery Time and Recovery Point service levels. Requiring minimal upfront investment, Disaster Recovery as a Service reduces ongoing cost and infrastructure maintenance, significantly increases flexibility and is a valuable contribution towards achieving ISO 22301 – the international standard for Business Continuity Management.
Getronics can support the Business Continuity process by using our own purpose built Disaster Recovery Workflow Management tool, which facilitates ‘Managed’ DR invocations and tests. C3 (Command and Control Centre) allows for geographically spread DR teams through a secure web-deployed portal and provides a dashboard for detailed recovery progress.
