Regardless of company size, your mission-critical IT systems cannot afford any downtime. You need to ensure the availability and recoverability of your files, email, databases and other business applications. To compete in today’s demanding environment, you must have a business continuity plan in place.

Negating the need to purchase costly hardware or software, you can enjoy full confidence that your mission-critical business data can be quickly recovered with optional automatic failover for a predictable monthly fee.

Complementing traditional backup

Our managed service does not replace traditional back up but offers an additional layer of protection with robust disaster recovery and business continuity. Real Time Data Replication ensures swift data recovery in the event of system failure. Similarly, our high availability service provides automatic failover avoiding business disruption and ensuring operational continuity even in the event of a serious or prolonged system outage.

Affordable and scalable

Our service is subscription-based, with flexible monthly or quarterly billing options and full predictability on costs. Suitable for smaller organisations with limited resources or large enterprises with complex IT architecture, our managed service eliminates the need to purchase, install, oversee and support hardware, operation systems and application software. It not only helps to reduce the overall cost and complexity of data protection for your environment , it also provides improved operational efficiency and mitigates risk. Our managed service is based on open architecture and is designed to support a wide range of the most popular applications and platforms including Windows File Server, Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint and IIS, Oracle and Blackberry Enterprise Server as well as other Windows, Linux and UNIX applications. All data is held and stored in Ireland.
