Managed services provider (MSP) Logicalis is launching two additional backup and disaster recovery features to its public cloud services portfolio for the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud (LEC). The additional features were launched after recent news reports about how companies can protect data in the event of a hurricane or another natural disaster. Here's the update.
Logicalis offers two public cloud data center facilities, located in Ohio and Arizona, to its clients. Each facility supports Logicalis’s coast-to-coast public cloud solutions, which include infrastructure as a service (IaaS), disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), and hosted Exchange. To support its DR-in-the-cloud offerings, Logicalis has added two new features.
"At Logicalis, we’ve noticed a significant increase in the number of businesses using VMware to build virtual servers that reside on their own internal infrastructure," said Logicalis Senior Director of Cloud and Data Center Solutions Kevin Gruneisen in a statement. "But what happens to that data in the event of an emergency? It needs to be replicated to protect it."
The following expand Logicalis's public cloud features:
- DRaaS with VMware SRM -- With DRaaS with VMware SRM, Logicalis has added support for VMware’s Site Recovery Manager. This feature can be controlled on a per-server basis, is fully automated, and can handle up to 500 virtual machines. In addition, Multiple RPO/RTO combinations are supported.
- DR Protection -- CIOs using one of Logicalis’s two enterprise cloud data centers can now obtain an automatic failover option to avoid downtime in the event of a disaster that affects either of the two LEC facilities.
