Disaster Recovery

Essential to Every Business

Gartner says that 43 percent of companies were immediately put out of business by a “major loss” of computer records, and another 51 percent permanently closed their doors within two years — leaving a mere six percent “survival” rate.

ViaWest’s Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) platform offers an easy to use and reliable Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service solution that is scalable to any business. Utilizing Zerto’s technology, ViaWest replicates your virtual machines to a geographically diverse disaster recovery (DR) site, helping with quick recovery after a disaster, whether man-made or natural.

We understand that IT departments are stretched thin, so we make our disaster recovery services simple by offering hypervisor-based replication, disaster recovery orchestration and automation with an offsite backup.

A Secure Solution for Disaster Recovery

When You Can’t Afford Downtime

ViaWest’s DRaaS solution was architected to offer a simple and cost-effective DR platform. Organizations can utilize this platform to replicate their virtual machines to a geographically diverse DR site, protecting themselves against both man-made and natural disasters. ViaWest makes it easy to recover your data with minimal loss by enabling Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) from minutes and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) from one hour, each based on the complexity of the environment.

Data protection is important, but the ability to recover applications efficiently and quickly is essential in restoring operations and business as usual. When you consider the true cost of downtime, beyond immediate lost revenue and production, it can damage brand, reputation and commitment to client SLA’s.

Create Your Disaster Recovery Plan Today

As businesses move more towards a virtualized and an ever evolving IT ecosystem, legacy disaster recovery approaches such as array-based, guest/OS based or appliance based become expensive and time-consuming to maintain. ViaWest’s DRaaS at the hypervisor level allows a client to pick and choose applications, manage virtual machines via a self-managed portal and provides testing to better understand the solution before an actual disaster by creating the right disaster recovery plan for your individual business needs.
