OT Disaster Recovery as a Service to offer a warm recovery site option for clients
Ann Arbor, Mich. – January 26, 2016 – Online Tech announced today the release of its latest business continuity service, OT Disaster Recovery as a Service (OT DRaaS). The new product, OT DRaaS, offers shorter recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) for clients that are now measured in minutes, versus previous recovery times of hours to days.
“Disaster Recovery has been a thorny hurdle throughout most of my career running large-scale enterprise infrastructure,” said Nick Lumsden, Online Tech’s Vice President of Technology and Product Strategy. “Cold sites can take too long for critical applications. Hot sites can increase costs by two to three times the capital and operating expenditure of the primary site. And warm failover has historically been very difficult to orchestrate. That’s why we are so excited about our new DRaaS offering – it makes having a warm recovery site so easy for our clients to use.”
As an added service to Online Tech’s existing backup offering, OT DRaaS offers better control of testing and recovery practices through test alerts and the monitoring of results, improving recovery practices and compliance testing. In addition to access and analytics, clients will also greatly benefit from better integration into their client portal, providing additional control in testing environments and clearer insights into their servers and recovery.
“This is a huge benefit for our clients, because our new offering grows our disaster recovery solution tenfold,” said Yan Ness, CEO of Online Tech. “Instead of just cold site offering, we now can combine our two cloud locations and dozens of managed services for any client to offer warm and, eventually, hot DR. We will be making DR as easy as offsite backup with failover measured in minutes, not hours.”
The fully managed disaster recovery service comes with the full backing of the Online Tech support team which is always ready to help configure, test, and initiate a failover. Visit www.onlinetech.com/products/disaster-recovery-as-a-service for more information.
