Servosity introduces the World's first UnCrashable™ Disaster Recovery powered by OpenStack. Servosity UnCrashable™ Disaster Recovery allows Managed Services Providers (MSPs) to backup and launch an entire enterprise network or data center and server infrastructure instantly.

Greenville, SC February 28, 2014

Servosity, the leading software provider for Backup and Disaster Recovery, today officially launched its UnCrashable™ Disaster Recovery Cloud. UnCrashable™ Disaster Recovery (UnCrashable™ DR) is the first Disaster Recovery as a Service(DRaaS) where servers are now UnCrashable™.

OpenStack is an open source cloud computing platform that allows the management of large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources in cloud environments.

Servosity UnCrashable™ Disaster Recovery allows Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to backup and launch an entire enterprise network or data center and server infrastructure instantly. You can launch site-to-site and site-to-multi-site VPNs, drag and drop instant network creation in your browser, virtual routers, Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), and VPN as a Service (VPNaaS). The launch of the most sophisticated Disaster Recovery options available anywhere includes fully isolated single-tenant networks giving complete control over network topology, IP addressing, network security, and architecture.

Old Man Winter blows through....

As many of us in different areas of the US are experiencing nasty winter weather, this not only effects us individually but many businesses as well. A disaster can be a number of different things during this time of year – power outage, burst pipes, icy travels, etc. Recently Winter Storm Leon hit the southern areas from Texas all the way to Carolinas. Some areas took precaution to prepare for this storm, but others...not so much.  

In Georgia, advanced warnings were given but immediate action wasn't taken to prepare for the dangers this storm would bring. Atlanta was left in a Gridlock, children were stranded at their schools with their teachers for 2-3 days because parents were unable to reach them. While this is a physical weather disaster, the same speaks true for your clients data. A law office preparing for a huge trial looses all the case information, an accounting firm looses hundreds of tax return information, or a doctor office loses all their patients files all due to a server or network crash.

 

During these critical times you want to have reliable security and recovery at the touch of button. Servosity covers these areas and gives you the assurance that your clients data is safely backed up. Not only will your data be safe and secure, but in the event of a disaster, you will be able to pull your network from any remote device and be back up in business within minutes.

 

 

What steps are you taking to prepare for a disaster???

Top 25 Features of New Cloud Disaster Recovery Services

Top 25 Features of New Cloud Disaster Recovery Services

Servosity releases two new cloud based disaster recovery solutions. These online backup services meet or exceed each of the 25 key indicators of tier one disaster recovery services.

 

Servosity, provider of Backup and Disaster Recovery for MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and IT Resellers, announced today DR Server and DR Desktop. DR Server and DR Desktop are Disaster Recovery solutions that allow you to perform a Bare Metal Recovery to dis-similar physical hardware or recover VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.

 

DR Desktop is designed for computers running desktop operating systems and DR Server is designed for server operating systems. Both provide the ability to backup physical and virtual machines and recover to any physical or virtual machine. Prior to the release of DR Desktop and DR Server, Disaster Recovery was too costly and/or too complex for MSPs and IT Resellers serving small and midsize businesses. Now they have a simple and cost-effective solution that not only works on Physical Machines, but works with VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and more. With no hardware required, and pay as you go pricing, the cost and capital barrier to entry is removed for small and midsize businesses.

 

Take the test; does your current disaster recovery provider measure up? Disaster Recovery Service Checklist for Managed Service Providers:

 

1. Can you take transactionally-correct Hot/Live bare-metal image backups? 2. Can you recover to anything? Dissimilar hardware, recover virtual to physical, vice versa? 3. Backup to Local Device, Network, and Cloud? 4. RPO (Recovery Point Objective) for Images of 15 minutes (local and in the Cloud) 5. RPO for data of <1 minute 6. RTO (Recovery Time Objective) <1 hour for entire server 7. Can you restore individual files instead of the entire server? 8. Can you restore Exchange mail items in addition to Exchange? 9. Cross platform – Windows, Mac, Linux 10. Physical or Virtual -- Physical, VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, Virtual Box 11. Do you have a product designed for desktops/laptops? 12. Can it be setup, download, installed, and configured in 5 minutes or less? 13. Do you have a web-services API to integrate with anything we desire? 14. Can we do bulk/push installs? 15. Can we manage everything online, or do we have to remote-in to change backup schedules? 16. Does the software auto-update or do we have to install upgrades? 17. Are ALL your Data Centers SAS-70 Type-II Audited? 18. Do you store ALL my data in 2 or more data centers located at least 100 miles apart? 19. Do you offer 24x7 Support? Does that cost extra? 20. Where is your support team located? 21. Do you sell Directly to Businesses? 22. Priced for Small and Midsize Business (S in SMB), under $20/month for starters? 23. Do I have to buy software or storage in blocks or is it pay as you go? 24. What are you monthly/annual minimums as a partner? 25. Is there any hardware required?
