(The Hosting News) – QTS (Quality Technology Services), one of the nation’s leading providers of data center facilities and managed services, today launched two disaster recovery services designed to provide network availability in the event of virtual or physical server disruptions. The DR ON-Demand and DR High Availability services feature flexible configurations for QTS’ managed hosting customers that can meet a variety of budgetary and business continuity needs.
QTS’ DR On-Demand offers a robust, image-based replication service for customers with virtual server environments. DR On-Demand is a fully managed service that uses geographically dispersed offline servers that can be activated in case of a disaster. QTS engineers work with customers to determine and customize the required recovery level, from application level to full server failover. This high level of customization makes DR On-Demand a cost-effective business continuity solution.
DR High Availability
QTS’ DR High Availability service provides real-time, continuous data replication of customers’ physical and virtual server environments, ensuring that a current copy of the data, applications and operation system are always accessible. This service uses asynchronous replication between servers in geographically dispersed QTS data centers to provide near zero data loss. Point-in-time recovery options allow customers the flexibility to failover to the most current data or to a specific date and time.
“Preparing for natural disasters and other unplanned events is a crucial part of business in today’s environment, where a company’s network is its lifeline to productivity,” said Chad Williams, chief executive officer – QTS. “We are proud to provide our managed hosting customers with these disaster recovery options, along with our expert engineers to help customers understand which service is most appropriate for their business needs.”
IBM partners with QTS to deliver and support custom IT solutions to IBM clients, and has worked with a New York City-based client in the financial services industry to implement QTS’ disaster recovery services.
“With QTS’ disaster recovery services, we were able to easily customize our client’s recovery solution according to their business needs and specific recovery requirements,” said Steve Fijalkowski, business unit executive, private cloud-delivery partner services – IBM Global Technology Services. “Our client was excited to find a solution that supports the replication of their large volume of data while meeting both their recovery point and time objectives.”
