DRaas provides flexible replication options that allow organizations to continually replicate critical servers, applications, and data into cloud
The company’s Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solves IT challenges, providing data storage, replication, and managed restoration in an affordable, efficient, and reliable manner. “DRaas provides flexible replication options that allow organizations to continually replicate critical servers, applications, and data into cloud,” asserts Tony Thomas, CEO at Windstream. “Our Cloud-to-Cloud business continuity and disaster recovery technology leverages enterprise-class cloud replication software from Zerto, the enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery solution. The solution secures customer applications by replicating data from their private clouds into a cloud in a Windstream cloud data center.”
Apart from the highest quality of services, the company operates across diverse industry verticals to address the disaster recovery challenges. Windstream provides leading-edge data, voice, Internet, network, and cloud solutions for education, government, financial services, healthcare, retail and hospitality. To illustrate, Windstream’s customizable telehealth solutions allow healthcare providers to more effectively share critical data, safeguard patient privacy, increase operational efficiency, and improve clinical health outcomes—ultimately providing a higher quality of patient-centric care.
Managed Remote Backup from Windstream Hosted Solutions delivers cost effective data protection and don’t require complicated set up or support. “Windstream’s Managed Remote Backup has no ‘back door’ decryption keys. Once encryption password and settings are established, no one else can access or decrypt backup data. Not even us who manage data at an offsite vault. In information security circles, this is known as a “trust no one” security paradigm,” explains Thomas.
Data is hosted in Windstream’s SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements); payment card industry compliant enterprise Data centers with 100 percent infrastructure availability service level agreements. Systems-based SSAE 16 addresses service organizations and comprises guidelines and principles for trusted data security, confidentiality, integrity, availability and privacy controls. “In addition, we have employed a powerful, security model based on EVault’s—a hybrid data backup and recovery solutions provider—cloud-connected backup and recovery, which reliably guards against data loss,” concludes Thomas.
