TwinStrata CloudArray - Disaster Recovery as a Service


Published on

In this slidecast, Nicos Vekiarides from TwinStrata presents: TwinStrata CloudArray 4.5 with DRaaS.

Today, we use a combination of TwinStrata, cloud storage and an always-on cloud compute environment to drive our disaster recovery strategy,” said Vernon Jackson, senior systems engineer, SEPA Laboratories. “While it works well, it's pretty costly to keep secondary infrastructure up and running in the cloud just so we can run DR tests once a quarter. With this new CloudArray DRaaS offering, we can eliminate eight months worth of cloud compute costs, while still maintaining a quarterly DR test schedule. That's a huge savings.”
