Timico has launched a new disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) offering a pay-as-you-go alternative to traditional disaster recovery plans involving duplicated IT equipment and difficulties in testing the efficacy of the plans.
Timico’s new DRaaS solution enables regular testing with no disruption to the production environment and includes a fully-documented annual test as standard. The solution also allows customers to pool servers into different groupings based on function, applications or importance and prioritise the order in which they are failed over based on individual business requirements.
Colin Bell, director of cloud and hosting, Timico, said, “For a long time businesses have viewed disaster recovery as a headache; something they know they should implement but that just seems too time consuming, expensive and a big drain on resources.
“Our new pay-as-you-go DRaaS solution alleviates many of these fears. Our customers decide how many servers they want to protect each month and pay a monthly fee based on that amount. Using our cloud platform as back-up in the event of a major disruption, precious assets are protected almost instantaneously until a business is ready to failback to its primary site.”
