Acclivis, a leading provider of world-class IT and cloud solutions, has launched its new SS507:2008 certified Disaster Recovery Centre and now offers a holistic range of solutions – from solution building to IT management and business recovery – to its customers.
When a disaster occurs, whether in the form of power outages or IT hardware failures, or during a natural disaster, such as the floods in Thailand or the tsunami in Japan, businesses can be crippled by the resulting loss of data and revenue. This is underscored by a survey1 by IDC which revealed that two in three organisations in the Asia Pacific would have less than half of their systems running, when faced with a disaster.
Although the importance of disaster recovery is evident, the traditional approach to disaster recovery is often too resource intensive, rendering it impractical for anything but missioncritical applications. However, with the maturity of cloud computing technology today, leveraging on cloud services to enhance disaster recovery implementations is a natural progression. Cloud-based disaster recovery solutions provide users with faster recovery from downtime and significant cost savings. This makes it an option for many organisations, including small and medium enterprises.
Acclivis’ disaster recovery solutions meet industry-use and specifications in a wide range of industries, including banking, insurance, life sciences, and retail and logistics. Featuring a Service Desk and Network Operation Centre that provide round-the-clock technical support and monitoring services against threats, Acclivis’ disaster recovery facility helps customers be prepared when disaster strikes. Continued business operations are also ensured with Acclivis’ Command Centre and Work Area Recovery Centre, which provide an alternative work location where customers can maintain their business operations during disasters. In industries such as banks where there is continuous exchange of highly sensitive information, work area recovery sites are essential so that business functions remain operational in the wake of disasters.
Located in the central Tai Seng area, the 25,000 sq ft facility, together with Acclivis’ dedicated Tier 3+ data centre with the latest power and fire protection systems, mean that Acclivis’ Disaster Recovery Services now feature the complete infrastructure support necessary to take care of the full needs of customers, no matter the situation. Acclivis now has the unique ability to help customers optimise their business performance by building, managing and recovering their systems according to their unique requirements.
In the current business landscape, enormous volumes of data are needed to run businesses, and accordingly, there is a critical need for companies to set up continuity plans. To address this, our Disaster Recovery Centre presents customers from a wide range of industries with solutions that ensure the resiliency of their business functions.
We started operations in Singapore in 2009 and with our integrated IT capabilities, have grown our presence by providing comprehensive end-to-end solutions — all under one roof to our customers.
