Leading IT services specialist Converge IT has announced the launch of a new offering around disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity. With firms risking going out of business without adequate DR provision but hesitant to make the necessary investment because of the cost, Converge has come up with the best of both worlds – high-level system protection at a mid-range price point.
The service uses real-time imaging technology to provide continuous data replication within the Converge data centre; this allows for both rapid bare metal recovery in the event of a single server failure, and a complete off-site DR facility in the more unlikely event of a full site failure. Half a dozen firms have already signed for the service ahead of its formal launch, including law firm O’Neill Patient.
Michael Lennon, O’Neill Patient’s IT director, explained: "Our clients need to be sure we can continue to deliver outstanding levels of service under any circumstances. Following a review of our Disaster Recovery strategy, we decided that we needed a new and improved technical solution based on the following key goals: speed of recovery; flexibility; reliability and security. This offering meets all of these needs."
Converge’s Nigel Wright comments: "The idea of downtime is becoming unacceptable. It's not just about maximising productivity, or not missing deadlines or client enquiries, or avoiding compromising your reputation, it's about being 'always on' - always accessible to customers, always available to staff, with 24/7 continuity being the new normal. This new service is designed to give firms the required level of protection and reassurance at an affordable cost. Or put another way, corporate level contingency at SME prices "
