Flexential Provides New Disaster Recovery Platform

Flexential, a provider of data center colocation, cloud, connectivity, and data protection, is launching a new Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering, Flexential DRaaS.

Flexential DRaaS is a flexible offering designed to answer the market need for a tailored solution that can protect complex IT infrastructures.

The new Flexential DRaaS gives organizations the option to customize their selection according to their business requirements and only pay for what they need.

Flexential DRaaS is scalable and highly flexible, tailored to each business's individual needs with support for all types of environments, including on-premises, cloud, collocation, and hybrid, and allows customization to technical and business requirements, according to the vendor.

"In today's highly connected world, business uptime and data availability are critical for business survival. Even seconds of downtime or data loss can be extremely destructive, causing revenue loss, brand damage and legal impacts," said Mike Fuhrman, chief operating officer, cloud and managed services, Flexential. "Flexential, which has nearly a decade of experience in DRaaS, is now offering a new, scalable, cloud-based disaster recovery solution that will give businesses the highly available environment, redundancy and continuous data protection they need to keep their data safe."

Flexential DRaaS is designed to protect organizations' most critical workloads that require RPOs of seconds and RTOs of minutes. The solution is powered by Zerto Continuous Data Protection (CDP), which provides journal-based recovery, allowing granular recovery of data from the point of just seconds before a cyberattack.

Flexential DRaaS is part of a robust end-to-end data protection portfolio designed to protect all systems and applications in a simplified and cost-effective way.

The data protection portfolio offers Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to protect mission-critical workloads, Backup as a Service (BaaS) to protect secondary/less-critical workloads, Object-based Storage (OBS) for Geo-dispersed storage, and Archive Storage for storing data for long-term compliance and security purposes.

Flexential also offers five DR centers in the U.S. strategically located to provide coverage within 600 miles of most metropolitan areas, truly ensuring that customers are always covered.
