Dubai, United Arab Emirates – May 15, 2016
NavLink, an AT&T affiliated company, announces the launch of its Disaster Recovery as a Service in UAE, KSA and the Gulf region. NavLink continuous expansion of services enables it to provide more holistic solutions to its customers.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is an innovative, cloud-based, enterprise-grade replication solution to meet the needs of today’s hybrid IT infrastructure. It is the replication and hosting of physical and/or virtual servers by a third-party to provide failover in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe.
“With cyber-attacks and natural disasters on the rise, organizations are finding a need to implement disaster recovery plans to ensure that essential data, platforms and applications are stored and protected in highly secure areas,” said Mansour Naufal, V.P. Product Development & Service Enablement, NavLink. “Organizations are opting for various DRaaS methods – in-country and out-of-country DR. The location and security of the servers where information will be stored are as important as securing access to this information.”
By using NavLink DRaaS, organizations do not have to invest in and maintain their own off-site DR environment, or invest in a secondary datacenter. Another advantage is the flexibility of DRaaS contracts catering for different business needs. Clients will be able to benefit from reduced investment costs, reliable security, recurrent restoration drill tests, Strict RTO and RPO SLAs, minimized usage of computing resources, and much more.
According to the Ponemon Institute© January 2016 Research Report on the Cost of Data Center Outages that was sponsored by Emerson Network Power, the cost from unplanned outage can reach up to US$9000/min, while the number one reason for outages is due to UPS failures, followed by Cybercrime.
Using the NavLink DRaaS solution is a way for organizations to mitigate these risks.
