Mobile disaster recovery: if you can't come to us, we can come to you


A disaster can compromise your work area, rendering it partially or completely useless to your operation. To mitigate against this risk, your business requires a workplace recovery plan so your people can continue to produce in the face of adversity. However, it is not enough to simply have a physical location where work can be accomplished. Your staff requires an array of additional capabilities, such as access to phones, PCs, your applications, and internet connectivity.

Fortunately, there is an answer: Sungard Availability Services' Mobile Recovery Units (MRUs) bring the office or data center recovery facility to you. We give your staff the ability to quickly resume productivity following an incident or interruption without relocating to a recovery center. Mobile recovery is the ideal solution when relocation isn't a feasible solution or if your organization requires a physical local presence.

Mobile recovery units to the rescue

To address your mobile disaster recovery needs, Sungard AS maintains a dedicated fleet of MRUs, which can be dispatched to any location in the continental U.S. and Canada within 24 hours. What's even more extraordinary is that  we can have a fully operational office or data center established for you just a short time after we arrive. 

Many of our many MRUs can support up to 50 people or dozens of rack-mount servers and infrastructure. They are fully self-contained, with diesel-generated power and high-speed satellite communications. Your business will have everything it needs to move forward with your disaster recovery process and your day-to-day business.
