Public Cloud Provider UKCloud Announces Launch of Cloud-based Disaster Recovery
13 April 2017
Public cloud provider UKCloud Ltd. (UKCloud) has announced the launch of cloud-based disaster recovery options. UKCloud, which has headquarters in Farnborough, Hampshire, United Kingdom, provides a “true public cloud for the exclusive use of UK Public Sector organisations”. The company benefits “the UK taxpayer, citizens and businesses” by providing services that allow Public Sector organisations to offer better services. UKCloud’s new ‘Disaster Recovery to the Cloud’ leverages Zerto's hypervisor-based data replication software.
UKCloud’s new service is a “self-service replication and recovery solution” that addresses a wide range of situations where failure might occur in a local data centre. Provided on a ‘pay-as-you-use’ cloud model the solution represents a cost-effective way for public organisations to recover from IT failures.
“It is crucial for our public sector customers to ensure that in the event of a disaster, their essential public services would face little or no disruption,” explained UKCloud’s CEO, Simon Hansford. “Having a disaster recovery plan in place is mandated by the Civil Contingencies Act, but traditional disaster recovery solutions are expensive and inefficient. We’re delighted to be offering this new service, which will help our customers meet their business continuity objectives with a flexible and cost-effective solution.”
