NTT and Geminare launch DRaaS solution in Europe
Written by staff reporter
NTT Communications has announced the launch of its disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution across Europe, in partnership with DRaaS platform provider Geminare.
Designed to help organisations adapt and evolve their disaster recovery programmes to a secure NTT Com Enterprise Cloud platform, NTT Com offers its DRaaS solution from four secure Enterprise Cloud locations in Europe and 14 worldwide. Clients can also choose from over 130 secure datacentres worldwide.
Damian Skendrovic, VP of Cloud Services NTT Europe, said: “NTT Com’s DRaaS solution is a powerful cloud solution that allows customers to place their recovery environments in NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud whether their primary infrastructure is on premises, in a public cloud or in a private cloud. This is powered by Geminare’s patented DRaaS platform making it a compelling way for customers to capitalize on the benefits of cloud.”
Joshua Geist, CEO and President, Geminare, said: “NTT Com’s presence in the European market adds an in-region strength that is unmatched. This same strength is what sets NTT Com apart in the market and truly establishes them as a global leader in DRaaS delivery. Our multi-tiered service delivery platform is the perfect vehicle for NTT Com to leverage its global infrastructure and cloud deployments, and offers a strong DRaaS solution to its customers. It is a winning combination for customers.”
NTT Com’s Recovery as a Service (RaaS) solution has been available in the United States since 2012. Earlier this year Gartner, in considering this RaaS solution, named NTT Com a Leader in Gartner’s 2015 Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Magic Quadrant. The report cited high functionality, differentiated usability, unlimited failover and recovery testing at no additional cost, amongst factors recommending the solution. Gartner expects that by 2018, the number of organisations using disaster recovery as a service will exceed the number of organisations using traditional, syndicated recovery services.
