UKCloud Announces the Launch of Disaster Recovery to the Cloud

UKCloud has announced the launch of Disaster Recovery to the Cloud, a self-service replication and recovery solution, powered by disaster recovery software provider, Zerto. As UK citizens increasingly expect to be able to access services online, around the clock, it has become even more important for public sector departments to invest in a back-up plan in the event of their local data centre suffering an outage or service disruption. Available across all government networks, Disaster Recovery to the Cloud enables public sector organizations to use the UKCloud platform as a cost-effective environment to recover from IT failures. The service mitigates a wide range of failure scenarios that can affect a local data centre - including power cuts and natural disasters - as well as providing protection against application failures, including unsuccessful software updates, and malicious cyber attacks. The innovative Zerto technology enables customers to easily roll-back cloud-based virtual machines (VMs) and workloads to a known safe state, allowing services to be restored rapidly, minimising downtime and data loss. Once an organisation has implemented Disaster Recovery to the Cloud, protected applications are seamlessly and securely copied and stored on the UKCloud platform, which acts as the recovery site. In the event of an application being compromised, the organisation is able to quickly recover the application to the UKCloud platform and, in so doing, make the service available to office-based users as well as mobile users (to mitigate the risk of the entire office or site becoming unavailable). Disaster Recovery to the Cloud is based on a pay-as-you-use cloud model; organizations can select applications that are crucial for the provision of public services, and therefore only pay for the disaster recovery or business continuity that is needed. In addition to providing assurance, UKCloud's Disaster Recovery to the Cloud will also help the public sector to embrace new technologies and digitise services. For instance, organizations who are looking to transition to the cloud but are hesitant about the impact on business operations, can use the service to test workloads on the UKCloud platform, whilst continuing to provide live services from an existing data centre. Organizations can also control the timing of their switchover and be assured that applications can be failed-back to their original state should any unforeseen problems arise.
