Move Over Disaster Recovery – Be Resilient With Sungard AS' Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Solutions

Still thinking about disaster recovery (DR) as IT insurance? CIOs are now asking about resiliency for their overall business – not just data or IT. In fact, according to a DR Benchmark, roughly 50% of outages are caused by software or network failures while only 14% are weather related. The point is – the outage will happen. Don’t just prepare to recover; prepare to be resilient. Ultimately it’s about end-users being able to access the applications and services to run your business at optimal performance.

For mission-critical data, our replication services can deliver a fully-functional copy of your environment in a ready-to-use state within 4 – 12 hours. For less urgent recovery requirements or long-term data retention, you can opt for cost-effective back-up and vaulting to meet RTOs and RPOs of 24 – 48 hours.
