Involta | January 31, 2023
On January 30, 2023, an Industry leading hybrid IT, data center, and cloud computing services company, Involta, announced its flexible and robust DRaaS+ (Disaster Recovery as a Service) offering. The new three-tiered model DRaaS+ is designed to offer the right service level for securing essential business data and systems. The service offered is built on Involta's proven track record, and it has provided leading DRaaS solutions since 2015 and is an immediate result of client feedback.
Business continuity is essential for companies today, but research shows that 93% of enterprises that lost their data center for more than ten days because of a disaster went out of business within a year. Many companies without data management in the same period filed for immediate bankruptcy. Involta's DRaaS+ provides a next-gen service model that focuses on business outcomes rather than only on infrastructure delivery.
Involta's top-notch infrastructure and industry-leading software can provide this solution quickly and precisely when and where it is most needed, such as in the aftermath of a disastrous natural event or cyberattack. The additional benefits of the software include 100% infrastructure and platform SLA for all service tires, no egress fees, expert engineer guidance for DR declaration, and allowance of predictable cost structure for various compute consumption models.
Jim Buie, President, and CEO of Involta, said, "Ensuring businesses can bounce back from a disruptive event is no small feat. Staggering numbers paint a gloomy picture where most businesses will simply not survive a catastrophic data loss." He also commented, "We are delighted to offer a full range of disaster recovery services designed to offer the level of support our enterprise customers need, all housed in Involta's owned, purpose-built, enterprise-grade data centers."
