New Cloud Backup and Recovery service from Recovery Point

Recovery Point, a US provider of integrated business continuity solutions to government agencies and commercial and non-profit organizations, has announced the launch of a new ‘Cloud Backup and Recovery’ offering, a fully integrated solution including the provisioning of software, infrastructure and platform as an on-demand service.

“In the disaster recovery business, backup does not mean ‘back in business,’ and simple cloud-based backup and data restoration should not be confused with more substantial cloud-enabled backup and disaster recovery,” said Dick Fordham, Recovery Point director of marketing and strategy. “The problem for customers is that as providers scramble for mind share in the category of ‘cloud’ services, they’re creating confusion as to what exactly cloud services are and how they can be accessed. Our new approach to providing data backup and disaster recovery as a single integrated process — through the cloud — should go a long way toward reducing the confusion.”

Recovery Point’s Cloud Backup and Recovery service combines efficient on-line backup and restoration with options for fully-fledged disaster recovery services into a single solution. Clients’ data is stored at Recovery Point’s enterprise disaster recovery facilities. In the event of a disaster, clients only need to place a single phone call to invoke their option to re-populate almost any virtual or physical replacement server in the cloud. And because Recovery Point captures the entire server image and not just data files, access to restored servers, applications and data can begin in as little as one hour after a total server loss.

Recovery Point’s Cloud Backup and Recovery service is accessible from anywhere in the US, thanks to the company’s unique dark fiber cloud infrastructure that extends remote storage and recovery infrastructure directly into key national network peering points where the world's major internet backbones and interchange peering points meet.
