In the wake of a hurricane or other natural or man made disaster, one of the most important considerations after life and death safety measures, is organizations resuming normal operations. That could mean government agencies, hospitals, businesses or even relief agencies which may have been affected. Data protection is one area that organizations must keep in mind. Not just hurricanes, but other natural disasters, cyber-crimes, denial of service attacks, and other events all put an organization’s data at risk. With security exposures increasing by the day, it’s not a matter of if organizations need a disaster recovery plan, but when.

DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, connectivity and managed services, announces the enhancement of its data protection services portfolio with the addition of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). This turn-key service leverages best in class services from Zerto and Veeam and provides organizations of all types with resilient and comprehensive data and network protection. DataBank’s DRaaS Offers organizations the ability to protect their systems and data against man-made and natural catastrophes through real-time replication and fail-over recovery for server workloads to select DataBank data centers.

DRaaS allow workloads, applications and systems to be recovered in a matter of minutes rather than hours or days, which is essential to keep companies running 24×7. DataBank’s services, enabled by industry leaders Zerto and Veeam, range from snapshot-based recovery to continuous data replication to fit any budget and a wide range of retention/recovery requirements.

“As today’s highly interconnected systems face new risks, cyber criminals, worms and ransomware attacks, companies need to invest to ensure that their customers and employees have access to their production systems 24x7x365,” states Vlad Friedman, CTO for DataBank. “With DataBank’s enhanced Disaster Recovery as a Service offering, it’s never been more affordable or achievable, especially for small and medium-sized businesses.
