Expedient gets Disaster Recovery as a Service Powered status

Expedient said that its virtual colocation public cloud service has attained VMware Disaster Recovery as a Serviceâ„¢ (DRaaS) Powered status.

A member of the VMware vCloud® Air™ Network Program, Expedient will offer DRaaS that drastically simplifies a disaster scenario with their exclusively branded Push Button DR solution.

A disaster recovery plan enables organizations to have peace of mind that potential downtime and loss of data resulting from a natural disaster or equipment failure can be minimized. Organizations that want to minimize the costs of infrastructure and software needed for a secondary or tertiary disaster recovery site can utilize Expedient´s public cloud as recovery infrastructure.

By using Virtual Colocation, firms can save by using a subscription-based service instead of making capital investments into physical infrastructure.

VMware DRaaS Powered status also enables organizations to quickly search for and identify service providers who provide disaster recovery services based on VMware technology.

Expedient sought VMware DRaaS Powered status in order to help ease consumers´ minds as they shift to cloud based resources to satisfy their Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity objectives. As a VMware vCloud Air Network Service Provider, Expedient can now provide users with enhanced responsiveness and agility, and enable reduced IT costs through greater performance, availability and scalability.
