by Kim Borg ‘Data loss’ and ‘catastrophic disaster’ are words that evoke fear in the hearts of even the most meticulous IT managers. Indeed, in the blink of an eye, a disaster can render a business incapacitated, bringing operations to a grinding halt.
November 16, 2011 – Hosting.com, a provider of cloud hosting and recovery solutions, just may have the tools – in the form of its recently unveiled, fully-managed cloud replication solution – to allow IT managers to breath a collective sigh of relief.
The company’s Cloud Replication – powered by VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5 (SRM 5) – delivers enterprise-class offsite data protection and disaster recovery, providing customers with a self-service portal and automated recovery solution that utilizes their existing infrastructures. What’s more, the solution allows customers to control not only cost but also exposure to disaster by customizing a degree of protection that best suits their organization – all the way down to the virtual machine (VM) level.
I spoke recently with Craig McLellan, Hosting.com’s Chief Technology Officer, about the significance of being able to provide affordable and functional data replication services for business’ virtual environments.
