What Dedicated Disaster Recovery Does

Fast Recovery

Recover business critical applications with active-active configurations. Advanced networking capabilities allow workloads to be migrated to and recovered from the recovery cloud with minimal to zero downtime.

Scalability and Portability

Control

Build your secondary disaster recovery datacenter in the cloud to suit your recovery time and security objectives. Dedicated cloud offers compute isolation and better security and compliance.

Optimize Costs

Use standby disaster recovery resources for other cloud use cases such as datacenter extension or eventual datacenter replacement.

FEATURES

Physically Isolated Compute

Network Portability

Performance
