Disaster Recovery as a Service

Heartstopping IT failure. At least your organisation won't skip a beat

Disasters are more common than you might imagine

One in three businesses has reported one in the last five years – and unfortunately the threat of outages due to system failure and ransomware attacks is increasing all the time. It's time to reassess your current DR strategy. Does it use manual failover and failback procedures? Does it fail to meet your ever-tightening recovery SLAs? Does testing disrupt your production environment? Is it keeping you locked into a particular vendor technology, inhibiting change?

Cost-effective DR, without a secondary data centre

Cost-effective DR, without a secondary data centre

We offer rapid, automated recovery from our secure data centre and can deliver a recovery point objective (RPO) of seconds and a recovery time objective (RTO) of minutes. We protect your data according to its value to your organisation. So you’ll only pay a premium to protect your most critical data.

Don't rely on backups

Don't rely on backups

Backup is a critical first step towards data preservation and restoration. But you shouldn’t rely on it for DR. Under normal conditions, your backup protects your data. But what happens if you lose access to your production environment, due to hardware failure, human error or some other ‘disaster’? Would your business survive? Many don’t.

Physical & virtual machine recovery

Physical & virtual machine recovery

We can recover your virtual or physical machines to any point in time, with a service tailored to meet your recovery objectives and environment complexity. For ultra-critical applications and services, choose continuous data protection (CDP) for near-zero recovery times. Alternatively, use SNAP to protect less critical data more cost-effectively.

Active disaster recovery

Active disaster recovery

For critical services, we can also give you the option to replicate and failover services at an application layer. Typically, this will require an active server (or servers) hosted in one of our data centres. For example, we can host your Exchange or SQL nodes using DAGs or always-on volumes, respectively, to manage the replication and failover process.

Dedicated storage replication

Dedicated storage replication

The third DRaaS product we offer, after machine recovery and active DR, is dedicated storage replication. Here, we simply copy your site’s storage volumes to our secure storage platform and DRaaS server farm. This allows rapid recovery using proven tools and processes.

We guarantee platform availability and testing

With a small in-house London based IT team and our many offices and power plants located on the African continent, management of our systems has been extremely challenging. Partnering with Proact has provided us with the flexibility and security of knowing that data and services are able to be restored within a small time frame.

Gary Mitchem, IT Director, Globeleq

We needed a partner and a relationship that could evolve with us. Proact offered that and it was in stark contrast to alternative options in the market which purely involved selling equipment. That’s been the key valuable criteria in the relationship that we’ve got.

Matt Meyer, Chief Executive, Taylor Vinters

Proact’s service has offered us a far more efficient solution that significantly increases performance and provides a guaranteed cost per GB, making it easy to predict storage costs over the next three years.
