Managed services and cloud provider NavLink
has announced the launch of ‘Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) options in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and in the Gulf region. NavLink, which is an AT&T affiliated company, was established in 1996 and has headquarters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. NavLink’s DRaaS offering is a cloud-based “replication solution” that addresses the needs of businesses with hybrid IT infrastructures.
NavLink’s new offering replicates and hosts a company’s physical/virtual servers to offer a “failover in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe” including the results of cyberattacks. The solution allows organizations to secure their IT infrastructure without having to make a substantial investment in an off-site Disaster Recovery environment or in a ‘secondary data center’. The flexibility of the company’s solution means that NavLink is able to offer services that meet a company’s exact requirements.
"With cyber-attacks and natural disasters on the rise, organizations are finding a need to implement disaster recovery plans to ensure that essential data, platforms and applications are stored and protected in highly secure areas," explained NavLink’s Vice President of Product Development and Service Enablement, Mansour Naufal. "Organizations are opting for various DRaaS methods - in-country and out-of-country DR. The location and security of the servers where information will be stored are as important as securing access to this information."Do you know of any other companies launching new DRaaS options?
