When disaster strikes, don’t be stuck picking up the pieces of your business and reputation. With a fully recoverable production environment from Sungard AS, you can confidently emerge from a crisis at minimal cost and maximum speed.

Recovery is a transformation essential

As part of their transformation initiatives, companies are evaluating the security and stability of their production environments—and their readiness to withstand disruption or disaster. It’s high time, too. In one study, more than 50% of organizations said they experienced 6-10 disruptions over the last 5 years.

Only 19% said their internal staff had the expertise to maintain business continuity and disaster recovery readiness. Setting up and maintaining a standby recovery site is also expensive. That’s why organizations are turning to cloud recovery to ensure business never stops, no matter what.

Decrease recovery time and costs, increase flexibility

With Sungard AS, you get a broad range of options, delivered on a secure enterprise-class platform. Choose from self- to fully-managed recovery solutions to optimize your IT budgets for hybrid environments.

Our back-up and vaulting service is ideal for less urgent needs or long-term data retention.

  • Recover your environment

    If disaster strikes, we’ll connect your data to your back-up infrastructure and recover your network and applications as part of our cloud recovery solutions.  

  • Manage your recovery

    With Sungard AS, you can customize your lifecycle approach to recovery by determining which processes you would prefer to handle yourself and which you would like us to manage – up to 100% – backed by robust service level agreements.
