Terremark Delivers Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery Solutions for Enterprises, Federal Agencies

Terremark Worldwide, Inc., a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced the most recent addition to its portfolio of virtualized services with the launch of cloud-enabled disaster recovery services. Terremark’s Virtualized Disaster Recovery solution provides customers with leading-edge, proven solutions that leverage the company’s enterprise-class cloud computing platform to deliver fully secure, pre-provisioned computing and network capacity with advanced data replication and fully managed data center failover.

This innovative disaster recovery solution, which supports a variety of operating systems and enterprise applications and databases, provides customers protection for their business-critical environments without the cost or complexity of maintaining the server, networking, and facility infrastructures at a secondary site. This service is based on a time-tested framework developed by Terremark’s team of disaster recovery experts and takes advantage of the company’s highly secure, top-tier data center facilities to deliver reliable, repeatable and predictable solutions that reduce recovery times to a matter of hours at a much lower cost than that of traditional disaster recovery services.

ShawCor Ltd., a global energy services company, is leveraging the flexible design framework to reduce risk, as well as cut overall consulting and implementation costs. In addition, the on-demand scalability offered by Terremark’s innovative solution allows ShawCor to dynamically add capacity above its baseline requirements to meet its real-time needs.

“With operations that span seven divisions around the world, the consistent availability of our core applications are fundamentally critical to the success of our company,” said Paul Gibson, ShawCor’s IT Manager. “By utilizing the cost-effective, cloud-based disaster recovery solution Terremark offers, we were able to replace a large capital expense with an affordable and predictable recurring charge while maximizing the uptime for our mission-critical systems. Terremark’s solution provides full recovery capabilities in 15 minutes, which we have successfully tested from our Houston data center to the NAP of the Americas.”

Based on NetApp storage and VMware’s vSphere technologies, Terremark’s Virtualized Disaster Recovery offers a diverse set of reliable options with array-based, host-based, and application-based replication options, support for physical or virtual source servers, and is suitable for customer environments that range from the most basic to the most sophisticated. On-demand managed security services like intrusion detection, log aggregation, firewall services, and on-demand managed backup services protect customer applications and data at similar or higher levels of security than required in their production environments.

“With customers searching for disaster recovery solutions that provide quick, reliable access to their environments at a fraction of the cost, services based on proven technologies like Terremark’s cloud-based offering present an ideal solution,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing for NetApp. “With NetApp’s industry-leading storage platform acting as a critical component for its offering, we believe Terremark’s cloud-enabled disaster recovery solution will quickly become a solution of choice for enterprises and Federal agencies.”

“Our cloud-based disaster recovery offering is more than just a remote-replication solution; it is a complete cloud-based site redirection service that incorporates the enterprise-class services necessary to run IT operations securely in the event of a disaster declaration,” said Tom Mays, Terremark’s Senior Vice President for Advanced Data Solutions. “Terremark’s physical and information security, trusted personnel, proven solution framework and industry-leading connectivity to global networks make the service a DR/COOP solution our customers can trust when a disaster strikes.”
