Lead with resilience, recover with confidence
With hybrid IT being the norm for most organisations today, it's likely your production environment is a blend of in-house and external data centres, public and private clouds, and siloed legacy systems.
This complex IT service delivery chain creates multiple points of potential failure, making it harder to maintain continuity for everyday operations and to recover quickly if disaster strikes. Even a few seconds of downtime can mean lost revenue, dissatisfied customers and missed opportunities to get and stay ahead in a competitive market.
But finding the time, resources and expertise needed for business continuity planning and disaster recovery is often postponed ... until the unexpected happens.

Think beyond backup
Creating a resilient, recoverable IT environment isn't a one-and-done exercise. It takes defining, documenting and testing your resiliency and recovery processes on an on-going basis to keep pace with IT and business change. It also takes expanding your thinking beyond just backup.
In addition to having a fully functional copy of your environment on hand to help recover servers, applications, data and workloads after a disruptive event, ensuring data is highly available and protected takes embedding resiliency into and across the production environment.
At Sungard AS, we help our customers move beyond backup to business resiliency, so they can anticipate risk, mitigate the impact and move forward with confidence. Our experience across a broad range of IT production and disaster recovery landscapes makes it easier for you to extend these benefits throughout your hybrid IT environment.
Choose the right disaster recovery and business continuity service
As a leader in maintaining always-on environments for our customers, we can assess your operational risks, apply proven processes to address them and provide innovative management tools for a high level of business continuity—making your mission-critical operations happen everyday.
Our tiered cloud-based recovery services allow you to balance cost with criticality. We offer server replication with near-zero RPOs and RTOs of under four hours for critical applications, or cloud vaulting with RPOs of under 12 hours for less critical data, workloads and applications. And we can act as a single point of recovery for virtual machines and data in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
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 backup and vaulting to meet RTOs and RPOs of 24 – 48 hours.
We can provide the people, processes and tools you need to recover effectively, with a solution that is right-sized to your business. We'll work seamlessly with your own staff to coordinate the proactive maintenance and management of your recovery solution.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Beyond getting back to business after a downtime event, we can help you avoid a disastrous event altogether with our solutions for business continuity. By defining and documenting what needs to be done and when—and who is responsible for action when the threat of downtime emerges—you can react to risks in real time to eliminate the need to recover.
