In a perfect world, all your business processes would move smoothly to the cloud, where virtualized resilience would effortlessly occur. Unfortunately, we live in an imperfect world where, for budget or technology reasons, not every application will be virtualized tomorrow and where genuine resilience does not occur spontaneously. In fact, the more complex your environment is, the more likely it is that – without the right partner – your operations will be exposed to residual legacy risk.
Where does this leave you? Should you accept the risk of gaps in your protection, or hire and manage a host of vendors to cover all the bases yourself? Or, should you add a trusted partner to your team who can manage it all for you under a single contract? The right partner can concurrently support your traditional legacy recovery requirements while helping you evolve to full resilience with DRaaS, keeping up step-for-step with you, as your digital transformation journey progresses.

Consider Oversubscription Risk
The shortcoming of traditional disaster recovery services has always been the risk of oversubscription. When vendors oversubscribe facilities, a large-scale disaster like Hurricane Sandy in 2012 can impact resource availability and put your recovery at risk.
Breaking with industry convention, Recovery Point pioneered a new approach to mitigate oversubscription risk. Unique in the industry, we maintain sufficient floor space, facilities and network infrastructure to recover 100 percent of every client’s subscription-based technology requirements simultaneously, at each client’s primary recovery site. When you select traditional disaster recovery services, you will recover at the site you know.
Executing traditional disaster recovery programs is not an afterthought for us. It’s where we started.
