EarthLink Inc. today launched its Cloud Disaster Recovery service, the latest in its line of virtualization platforms for businesses.
Cloud Disaster Recovery features a replication server in the cloud, so companies have to put minimal resources into maintenance. The service protects data, applications and the operating environment from accidents and disasters, power outages, and server crashes by continuously replicating the primary server to an EarthLink data center. And because EarthLink runs data centers throughout the country, customers can choose the location that best suits their needs.
In addition, Cloud Disaster Recovery is fully customizable, said Michael Toplisek, executive vice president of sales and marketing for EarthLink.
"So whether the client needs to back up specific data or their entire infrastructure, they purchase only a small amount of computing resources and their required storage, only paying for the full failover environment if its activated," said Toplisek.
Cloud Disaster Recovery requires no capex, EarthLink said. The platform is sold through channel partners.
