DR-as-a-Service

Business continuity with peace of mind you’ll always be able to fully recover, as quickly as possible.

Traditional approaches to DR struggle to adapt to the scalability, mobility and flexibility demands of virtualised and cloud-based IT infrastructures – put simply, they’re no longer fit for purpose.

Our DR-as-a-Service solution ensures full recovery of data, getting your business up-and-running within the shortest possible window. Deploying best-of-breed technologies, our DRaaS platform features an industry-leading Recovery Point Objective (RPO); in a DR incident, it offers near real-time replication, resulting in just seconds of data loss rather than hours or days.

Without significant CapEx investment or the expense of keeping a secondary DR site running around the clock, you can replace in a stroke the cost of hardware, software and resources with DRaaS offering predictable monthly expense and high burst capacity. You can also leverage VDI solutions, rather than sinking money into DR infrastructure that may never be used.

Benefits at a glance

  • Less business disruption with users quickly back online
  • Better experience and productivity for remote workers
  • Cost avoidance and lower TCO
  • Greater agility with staff relocated to temporary workspaces and/or equipped with VDI thin clients

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

A scalable infrastructure solution enabling businesses to unlock the full potential of transformative technologies

Advanced technologies – augmented and virtual reality, AI, accelerated computing, intelligent networking, robotics and more – are transforming today’s industries. However, many businesses are yet to scratch the surface of how these technologies can be successfully deployed for operational and strategic benefit.

In practice, exploring the potential of new systems like advanced AI reveals underlying problems for businesses. All too often, they lack the supportive technology infrastructure required. Obstacles to success are usually found in the data centre; attempts to manage the enormous AI processing requirements on-site can reveal an insurmountable lack of capacity. The data and processing loads overwhelm data centres, and cause network latency or even outages, leaving firms struggling to derive the actionable and timely analysis they need.

To make the most of these opportunities, organisations are increasingly turning to Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) to allow them to super-quickly transform networks, storage and compute. With IaaS, they can acquire the digital foundation they need for an affordable monthly price – escaping large upfront investment and recruitment of costly IT specialists – so the business can drive for growth, lower overheads and better margins.

Benefits at a glance

  • Raising productivity by ensuring staff can always access data, applications and resources
  • Superior client experience by more closely aligning IT delivery across all service touchpoints
  • Increased protection against cybercrime and data loss, while removing audit stress and hassle
  • Eliminating the expense of owning, maintaining and refreshing IT assets
  • Allowing resources to be focused on DevOps and value-creating tasks
