DRaaS Cloud Solutions

DRaaS Features

  • Flexible replication options that allow you to continually replicate critical servers, applications and data into our cloud. 
  • Application-consistent recovery points for key applications like Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle, SharePoint and more
  • Pre-built virtual recovery environments, including private network connectivity, security and per-server failover plans linked to a continuously updated replica of each of your servers
  • Fully managed or self-serve options for testing and recovery, enabling you to test failover or run your critical infrastructure in the Windstream cloud environment until you restore operations at your primary data center

Multiple DRaaS Replication Options

Disaster Recovery as a Service offers multiple replication options, each leveraging your existing infrastructure investment while providing fully-managed and hosted recovery of your environment when a disaster occurs:

  • Cloud-to-Cloud Recovery and Server-to-Cloud Recovery handle virtual and physical servers
  • For EMC-powered data centers, with managed EMC RecoverPoint Appliances and Replication Manager support
  • For NetApp-powered data centers, with managed SnapMirror / SnapVault replication and support for SnapManager

The experts have said it for years: when it comes to backing up and restoring your data and applications, it’s not about the backup. The ability to quickly recover your key servers and applications and getting back in business is what really counts—because every minute you’re down, you’re losing business. That’s why so many businesses trust Windstream for comprehensive disaster recovery and business continuity solutions—including the security of DRaaS to replicate your critical servers and data center infrastructure in the cloud.
