Peak 10 enhances its Recovery Cloud service

US-based IT infrastructure and cloud solutions provider Peak 10 Inc. has announced that it has enhanced its Recovery Cloud service, substantially overhauling its scope, processes and technology to help customers restore services in the event of a site failure quickly, securely and regardless of where their production environment is housed.

Recovery Cloud now incorporates technologies that allow customers to securely replicate production systems to a multi-tenant environment, without changing their existing environment or underlying storage platform. A full cadre of managed security services can be layered on top of infrastructure and disaster recovery services. The solution ensures maximum data protection within the multi-tenant environment, through segmentation of customer information, data and network.

This ‘DRaaS’ (disaster recovery as a service) solution is highly flexible, allowing production systems to be housed on the customer’s premises, within a Peak 10 environment or at a third-party data center.

The disaster recovery environment can be configured to meet a customer’s complex needs, including multiple IP segments and virtual local area networks (VLANs) in addition to compliancy and regulatory requirements.

The disaster recovery management and replication component of the Recovery Cloud is also available as a standalone service.

Recovery Cloud provides maximum scalability by making use of a shared pool of compute and storage resources that customers subscribe to in order to run their replicated systems for testing or actual failover purposes. Connected to Peak 10’s multi-tiered storage infrastructure and robust core network, these resources are provided based on specific performance, availability and scalability requirements for each customer.

Peak 10 manages all aspects of the underlying technology, including maintenance and providing the associated data center services, hypervisor and Windows operating system licenses.
