Cold Site Facilities

Long-Term Support For Extended Operations

When the time required to restore normal operations exceeds the six-week Hot Site occupancy period, Cold Site subscriptions can extend restoration support for up to one year, or more. We will assist you in the design, procurement and implementation of virtually any environment required to extend your recovery operations after expiration of Hot Site occupancy.

Recovery Point’s Cold Site facilities were purpose-built to mitigate risks associated with any single point of infrastructure failure and to operate on an extended basis without access to municipal services. Our Cold Site facilities also support managed tape backup services and off-site data storage.
