The Recover2Cloud service will complement the SunGard disk-based vaulting services for online backup powered by EVault.
The Seagate Company i365 Inc. announced this month that SunGard Availability Services will employ the EVault Remote Disaster Recovery (RDR) recovery as a service platform to bring its Recover2Cloud for Vaulting service to market.
Recover2Cloud for Vaulting leverages SunGard’s disaster recovery solutions and cloud infrastructure to provide SMBs with recovery of applications and data-to-the-cloud solutions in the case of an outage or disaster. The Recover2Cloud service will complement the SunGard disk-based vaulting services for online backup powered by EVault.
According to the terms of its agreement with i365 Inc., SunGard will ensure all facets of data and application recovery for customers while contractually guaranteeing a sub-24 hour Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the recovery of application environments.
†”Organizations today cannot operate without continuous access to their applications, making disaster recovery and information availability critical to the health of a business,” says Larry Coble, SunGuard Availability Services’ senior vice president and recovery services general manager. “By combining EVault’s Cloud-Connected backup technology with our cloud platform and disaster recovery expertise, SunGard’s Recover2Cloud for Vaulting provides organizations with a comprehensive cloud-based disaster recovery solution, fully managed by SunGard recovery experts.”
Recover2Cloud for Vaulting is part of a suite of managed recovery services backed by guaranteed service levels. The product is designed to restore data from an online vault and deliver application recovery in less than twenty-four hours.
As part of the Recover2Cloud for Vaulting service, SunGard assumes recovery responsibility on behalf of an SMB, with an operations staff driving solution deployment and performing monitoring, troubleshooting, and testing. In case of an outage in the customer’s production environment, SunGard experts also perform the recovery.
Recover2Cloud for Vaulting is ideal for SMB customer environments with up to 20 terabytes of data to protect.
“We’re very excited to deepen our strategic alliance with SunGard and now to power their Recover2Cloud for Vaulting disaster recovery offering as well,” says i365 president Terry Cunningham. “We have seen unprecedented adoption of the company’s EVault RDR platform, and partnering SunGard will extend the reach of EVault Cloud-Connected storage services to SunGard’s strong client base.”
