eUKhost Ltd., a web hosting provider headquartered in Leeds, UK, with UK data center presence in Maidenhead and Milton Keynes, has introduced Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) on its eNlight Cloud Platform.
As the Disaster Recovery as a Service is based on cloud computing architecture, the solution would be ideal for SMBs and Organizations where cost of DR solution is a concern.
DRaaS on eNlight Cloud comes with some unique features which might offer benefits in comparison to traditional DR setups:
- Cost Savings, as DR setup is fully used, and hence fully paid for, only in case of a disaster.
- Allows aggressive recovery time objectives (RTO).
- Stringent recovery points (RPO) can be set ensure minimal or no data loss.
- Flexibility in terms of cost and utility.
“Man SMBs lack the budget for their own Disaster Recovery site, but still need a solution that’s just as responsive and resilient as their primary site,” said Mr. Robert King, the Managing Director of eUKhost. “In today’s highly competitive scenario, even SMBs need to be up and running after a disaster just as rapidly as any enterprise organization as their businesses also rely on online presence. Unfortunately, most traditional DR services are unaffordable for them as they come either at very high cost as they require exactly the same hardware setup at the DR and the main site. This effectively means that the investment in DR site is equivalent to that in main site.”
Launched in 2001, eUKhost Ltd. offers a range of services including shared web hosting, reseller hosting, virtual private servers (VPS), cloud hosting and dedicated servers. The company has over 1,200 servers housed in two datacenter facilities in the UK, serving more than 35,000 customers.
