Hands-off recovery of businesses’ on-premise or cloud services now available from AT&T
AT&T* is helping business customers reduce the risks in cloud storage by offering Cloud Recovery with Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS), which is supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This new service offering from AT&T will help businesses recover faster when a disaster impacts their cloud storage and services. The service works for hybrid environments, too. Businesses can back up combinations of their off-premise and on-premise systems, whether they’re physical or virtual, to AWS.
In most cases, recovery can be done in four hours or less. AT&T will be adding support for more cloud environments throughout the year.
“Business doesn’t stop when disaster strikes,” said Josh Goodell, VP, Intelligent Edge, AT&T Business. “Companies need to be able to recover and continue operations ASAP, without pulling resources from other places to get back up and running. This gives them the perfect chance to do just that.”
As a managed service, Cloud Recovery – AWS from Sungard AS can be hands-off for the customer. Implementation, testing, operation, monitoring, and maintenance of the recovery process are all handled through Sungard AS. This enables customers to focus on their production priorities while utilizing Sungard AS’ recovery expertise and investment in AWS-centric replication and orchestrated recovery technology, tools, and resources.
“Sungard AS brings its heritage of delivering resilient, recoverable IT infrastructures to AT&T customers for an enterprise-class, SLA-backed cloud recovery service supported by AWS,” said Jim Paterson, Senior Vice President, Product Management, Sungard AS. “Our cloud recovery solution leverages the cost efficiency and flexibility of public cloud to deliver business resilience so that companies can move forward with confidence, knowing their applications and data are always available.”
The recovery model is built to mature with companies, so as businesses expand and evolve their cloud strategy, Sungard AS supported by AWS recovery can scale and provide the same level of service as needs change.
