Cloud Hosting Provider BlackBridge Selects Sungard’s Cloud Recovery Services

BlackBridge Networks, a Canadian technology services provider offering colocation, cloud hosting and network services, has chosen SunGard Availability Services to deploy a Recover2Cloud pod for server replication, providing real-time data replication and same-day recovery for clients in Western Canada.

cloud-hosting-services-sungardSunGard’s Recover2Cloud managed cloud hosting services would guarantee the recovery of critical applications on a secure, enterprise-grade cloud hosting infrastructure. With Recover2Cloud cloud services, SunGard experts work with a client’s team to develop the right mix of technologies to support the recovery time and recovery point objectives of applications.

“This is a unique project because it is the first time SunGard Availability Services has deployed a Recover2Cloud pod outside of a SunGard Availability Services-operated facility,” said Chris Toushan, North Region Sales vice president, SunGard Availability Services. “Partnering with BlackBridge enables us to expand the reach of our services and penetrate a new, previously under-served region in Canada, enabling SunGard Availability Services to offer potential fail-over capabilities entirely on Canadian soil.”
