LITTLE ROCK, AR — Windstream Hosted Solutions, a provider of cloud and data center solutions, launched a new cloud-to-cloud recovery solution. Cloud to Cloud Recovery, which focuses on replicating mission-critical virtual servers and data, provides customers with a new alternative for cloud-based disaster recovery.

“From natural disasters to human errors, data loss and downtime can lead to lost revenue, diminished reputation and unproductive staff. Disaster recovery is an essential safeguard, a requirement in today’s business world,” said Rob Scheible, senior product marketing manager at Windstream. “We developed the Cloud to Cloud Recovery solution to transform how businesses plan for disaster recovery and business continuity within cloud environments. With this solution, disaster recovery is simple, making business continuity a seamless process for each customer.”

Replicating Data from Private Clouds into a Windstream Cloud Data Center

Windstream’s Cloud to Cloud Recovery solution leverages the enterprise-class cloud replication software from Zerto, a provider of  enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for virtualized infrastructure and cloud. The solution secures customer applications by replicating data from their private clouds into a cloud in a Windstream cloud data center. With no hardware to buy and continuous replication and near instant recovery, the Cloud to Cloud Recovery solution is an exceptionally resilient and cost-effective disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution for private or public clouds.

“We're excited about the new DRaaS offering that Windstream customers are now able to use, which incorporates Zerto as part of the Cloud to Cloud Recovery solution," said Ziv Kedem, CEO and co-founder, Zerto.  "The real-time cloud based disaster recovery service within Windstream’s virtualized environments supports businesses of all sizes to quickly, easily, and cost-effectively protect production applications both going to and in the cloud. This enhanced capability adds another revenue stream to help Windstream continue to grow their business, while broadening their customer support capabilities."

Features of Windstream’s Cloud to Cloud Recovery solution include:

  • No Hardware. One-time installation of Hypervisor software, typically completed in less than an hour.

  • Continuous Replication. To ensure that critical application recovery data is the most recent, the solution continuously replicates data within the selected disaster recovery cloud.

  • Near Instant Recovery. Automated recovery enables a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of less than 15 minutes.

  • Service Options. Customers can choose between a fully managed service to decrease impact on IT resources or self-managed service for full control of protection management, testing and failover.

According to industry research firm, Gartner, “wider adoption of DRaaS can be largely attributed to the proven viability of cloud-based solutions.” The firm estimates the size of the DRaaS market to be approximately $1.3 billion, with a related compound annual growth rate of approximately 30 percent. By 2018, Gartner estimates that the size of the DRaaS market will exceed that of the market for more traditional subscription-based DR services.
