Disaster recovery and business continuity in the cloud era

It’s an always-on world, where your data and IT infrastructure are vital to keeping your company running all the time. This makes business continuity not just a CIO responsibility, but rather the required focus of the entire executive suite and even at the board level.

Preparing and protecting the entire organization

Sirius has partnered with Recovery Point to bring you the most robust IT disaster recovery solutions, supported by Sirius’ expertise in designing, implementing and managing high availability and recovery plans and solutions across complex enterprise environments — all with the convenience of a single Sirius contract.

Sirius can help prepare your organization for new BC/DR challenges in the era of the cloud-based hybrid data center, with a clear path to Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

With enterprises gaining confidence in the cloud, and IT organizations recognizing the operational and economic advantages of DRaaS, the modern alternative to traditional disaster recovery is quickly becoming a standard component of a holistic continuity solution. But it can be costly to assume that all solutions are equal. In addition, the fragmentation of production across the hybrid data center brings new DR/BC challenges that may require the integration of a number of components into an overall solution.
