Timico Launch Data Recovery to Channel

Colin Bell, Director of Managed Hosting at Timico

Timico has launched a new Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering – an affordable cloud-based solution to encourage businesses of all sizes to protect themselves from potentially damaging downtime.

Traditionally, disaster recovery plans have been difficult to implement, with many companies accepting the ‘one size fits all’ approach which falls short in practice. Testing has also been a major concern – with businesses previously having to invest in duplicate equipment to implement disaster recovery testing.

Timico’s say the new DRaaS solution takes away this concern, allowing for regular testing with no disruption to the production environment.

Colin Bell, Director of Cloud and Hosting at Timico, said: “Disaster recovery isn’t a new concept, but with the ever-growing reliance on IT, it’s imperative to have a resilient strategy in place. For a long time businesses have viewed disaster recovery as a headache – something they know they should implement but that just seems too time consuming, expensive and a big drain on resources.

“Timico’s new pay-as-you-go DRaaS solution alleviates many of these fears. Our customers decide how many servers they wish to protect each month and pay a minimum monthly fee based on that amount. Using our cloud platform as back-up in the event of a major disruption, precious assets are protected almost instantaneously until a business is ready to failback to its primary site.”

Timico has selected Zerto as its software partner for DRaaS, offering full integration with vCloud director for Virtual Data Centre recovery. As well as moving its replication into the hypervisor so that its storage is agnostic with no reliance on Logical Unit Numbers, Zerto’s replication technology surpasses any in the market due to its comprehensive integration with VMware.
