CT Wholesale is set to showcase its cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution at Convergence Summit South 2016.
We will also be demonstrating our Partner Control Panel and SiP Trunk telephony system to delegates at the event, which takes place on 27-28 September at Sandown Park Racecourse.
According to independent research published last year, around half of all UK companies with data centre infrastructure admit that they are unprepared for a natural disaster, with only 45% stating that their data centre is flood resistant and just 43% saying their facilities are earthquake-proof. However, 60% said their data centre is located in an area away from physical or environmental hazards.
Physical disasters are something which all businesses need to be aware of, as they can have huge financial and economic consequences.
For example, the bill for damage caused by extensive flooding in the north of England last winter topped £5bn. Many businesses were left without access to their communications, IT and data systems while clean-up and repairs took place.
Business continuity in the event of a disaster can be ensured by replicating virtual servers to a provider such as CT Wholesale, which power those servers on a hosted platform, enabling a business to continue working from the cloud, rather than its physical on-site server.
CT Wholesale’s DRaaS solution, which is powered by the latest software from Veeam Replication, enables resellers to put an operational contingency plan in place for their clients, allowing their systems to work almost instantaneously when invoked.
Its provision provides peace of mind that their virtual servers are mirrored on a secure and resilient data centre infrastructure, ready to activate when they need it the most.
Its key benefits include:
- Instant VM recovery, which enables entire VMs to be restored within minutes, or automatically turned on based on a set of criteria.
- SureBackup, which gives confidence that files, applications and virtual machines can be recovered any time, every time.
- Virtual machines to the cloud using built-in WAN acceleration, which make back-ups and replications 50 times faster.
Richard Thompson, CT Wholesale’s sales director, said: “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at Convergence South 2016, to showcase our DRaaS solution. It’s the only place where resellers, dealers and partners can see so many channel companies under one roof.
