An alternate space for business recovery
If an event outside of your control compromises your premises, you might assume your people can muddle through working from home, or in a coffee shop or hotel. But during major disruptions, like a hurricane, flood, cyber attack or terrorist activity, entire areas can be left without power and telephony for weeks at a time.
The reality is, most employees still need a workspace to be productive. And critical IT staff need to gather as a team, not isolated or dispersed across multiple locations.
Workplace Recovery Services from Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) provide an alternate brick-and-mortar site for key staff. Our facilities are fully equipped with virtually everything people need to get on with the job at hand: from networked PCs, familiar applications, high-speed internet connectivity and phones to desks, seating and even a kitchen and break room. It's not so much a home-away-from-home, but an office-away-from-the-office.
Recover faster with fewer losses. Whether you opt for space in one of our recovery centres or a mobile recovery unit, your employees are guaranteed a secure, comfortable working environment with communications and connectivity, not just a physical location. Empower your staff to keep the wheels of business turning while you recover your IT.
Eliminate costly contingencies. Gain the facilities, equipment and expertise of an enterprise-grade recovery infrastructure and network. If your primary site is unavailable, you can avoid the guesswork and maintenance burden of building and updating a back-up worksite of your own. Rented at a per-seat price, you can also keep workspace recovery costs in line with your budget.
A one-stop shop for high availability. Our workplace recovery services can be tailored to your specific needs, depending on your recovery time objective (RTO) and employee relocation requirements. Mix and match cost-effective shared recovery space for your technicians, while they restore databases, with a private, custom-designed space for traders or call centre employees. One call will do it all.
