(The Hosting News) – GalaxyVisions and ColoGuard, the New York region’s leading providers of Internet hosting and colocation solutions, announced today that they are offering same-day setup for customers in need of disaster recovery services. Both companies are also waiving associated setup fees until the end of December.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, thousands of companies with operations on the East Coast discovered that they need to develop or strengthen disaster recovery plans. ColoGuard and GalaxyVisions have been offering such solutions for years to organizations large and small.
“We understand that times are difficult, and we are here to do everything possible to make the transition quick and painless for everyone,” said Ruben Magurdumov, GalaxyVisions’ Co-Founder and Vice President of Operations. “Our expertise is in developing plans not just for the last disaster but for anything Mother Nature might next throw our way.”
ColoGuard is a leading provider of colocation solutions, hosting the primary and backup infrastructure of companies throughout the New York metropolitan region. Its sister company, Internet hosting provider GalaxyVisions, offers a wide array of virtual and dedicated servers that are ideal for disaster recovery situations as well as primary operations.
Both companies offer fast, direct connections to the Internet via multiple Tier 1 carriers for maximum reliability and performance even in emergencies. The state-of-the-art data center has its own power substation and draws electricity from two public utilities, plus N+2 diesel generators and fully redundant Liebert UPS AC backup systems.
The 15,000-square-foot data center, located in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, was in the path of Hurricane Sandy but did not suffer any damage or outages even as two public utilities went dark and the facility switched to its generator for electricity. Because arrangements had been made with fuel distributors long before the storm, diesel for the generator was plentiful until power was restored earlier this month.
“ColoGuard and GalaxyVisions continued to function at full capacity during and after the storm because we followed the same advice we offer to our customers,” Magurdumov said. “Our power, connectivity and security systems were designed to withstand multiple failures, and everything worked as designed.”
GalaxyVisions and ColoGuard architects are available to consult on and help with a variety of disaster recovery solutions. Their experience includes building hot, cold and warm sites as well as asynchronous and synchronous configurations.
