Data center, cloud, and connectivity services provider Databank has expanded its data protection services portfolio with the addition of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). The DRaaS service would leverage “best in class” services from Zerto and Veeam and provide organizations of all types with “resilient and comprehensive” data and network protection.

DataBank’s DRaaS offers organizations the ability to protect their systems and data against man-made and natural catastrophes through real-time replication and fail-over recovery for server workloads to select DataBank data centers.

Natural disasters aren’t the only threat to an organization’s data and systems, stated Databank. Cyber-crimes, denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and other events would be just as much, if not more, of a risk. DataBank’s DRaaS would provide a quick recovery to get an organization back up and running.

Workloads, Applications, Systems

“Our Disaster Recovery as a Service offering allows even small IT teams to compete with larger companies in terms of uptime and availability of their systems,” said Vlad Friedman, CTO for DataBank.

DRaaS would allow workloads, applications and systems to be recovered in a matter of minutes rather than hours or days. DataBank’s services, enabled by Zerto and Veeam, range from snapshot-based recovery to continuous data replication to fit any budget and a wide range of retention/recovery requirements.

“As today’s highly interconnected systems face new risks, cyber criminals, worms and ransomware attacks, companies need to invest to ensure that their customers and employees have access to their production systems 24x7x365,” said Vlad Friedman, CTO for DataBank. “With DataBank’s enhanced Disaster Recovery as a Service offering, it’s never been more affordable or achievable, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. Our service allows even small IT teams to compete with larger companies in terms of uptime and availability of their systems – which have now become requirements to remain competitive.”

  • Geo-diverse replication options to 19 data centers across 9 key markets
  • Replication to any hypervisor/host to secondary and/or tertiary data centers
