HotLink Corporation has launched its new HotLink Managed DRaaS (disaster recovery as a service) utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide holistic VMware data protection and cost-effective business resiliency.

The new offering combines the award-winning HotLink disaster recovery and business continuity technology with fully-managed services for a turnkey solution.

HotLink Managed DRaaS benefits from the low pricing, broad reach and unlimited scalability of AWS. The new service is built around HotLink’s HotLink DR Express and includes backup, replication, disaster recovery and business continuity services.

“HotLink Managed DRaaS provides an affordable and accessible insurance policy that ensures customers’ environments can be seamlessly restored and readily managed in the event of a failure, using IT’s existing VMware management tools and methodologies. This is a first in the industry,” said Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink. “Companies want a ‘set it and forget it’ solution for DR/BC, and that’s exactly what our new service provides. Most importantly, the new HotLink Managed DRaaS solution is dramatically more affordable than other fully-managed options because HotLink leverages the public cloud economics of AWS as the DR/BC infrastructure.”
