SingleHop Introduces Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service for VMware and Hyper-V-Based Private Clouds with an Added Focus on Capital Efficiency

CHICAGO, IL – March 25, 2015 – SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand hosted private clouds and managed hosting, today introduced disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) to safeguard corporate data against downtime, human error, and other unforeseeable events that can negatively impact business operations and reputation. The SingleHop DRaaS solution works with both VMware and Hyper-V, and allows enterprises to eliminate many of the infrastructure and software costs required for a secondary or tertiary “hot” disaster recovery site.

SingleHop’s DRaaS solution combines the powerful on-demand capabilities and real-time scalability of SingleHop’s hosted private cloud products with robust on-demand disaster recovery software from Zerto to dramatically reduce recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) without compromise. With this solution, customers’ environments can be made to failover to their specialized private DR cloud.

Support from A to Z: Service Advantages
SingleHop’s expertise in end-to-end virtualization eliminates the need for customers to determine the scale of their disaster recovery solution in advance. Through a highly engaged onboarding process and deep rooted infrastructure automation, SingleHop’s sales and engineering teams create custom disaster recovery environments specifically suited to each individual customer’s organizational needs and circumstances.

“There are a lot of companies offering DRaaS, but none of them have SingleHop’s on-demand infrastructure platform or automated SLAs, which make all the difference in the world when delivering mission critical DR infrastructure,” said Jordan Jacobs, VP of products for SingleHop. “Even beyond our leading platform, SingleHop has cultivated an incredibly talented team of solution architects able to understand complex needs and design unique solutions that maximize current investments in hardware and software.”

Disaster Recovery for Infrastructure of Any Kind
Infrastructure-agnostic disaster recovery means that it does not matter what type of infrastructure an organization’s critical applications run on. SingleHop’s hosted disaster recovery service replicates existing infrastructure, regardless of hypervisor, and allows both applications and data to fail over with a near zero RTO.

In addition to being infrastructure and storage agnostic, SingleHop DRaaS capabilities exceed best practices for assuring business continuity. Well-suited for cloud-savvy customers, as well as those who have no prior experience relying on cloud-hosted failover solutions, customers are now assured of total business continuity with minimal effort and technical knowledge. This provides businesses with peace of mind knowing that their critical business systems are protected by industry-leading services for failover of critical applications and data from SingleHop and Zerto.

Cutting Costs By Extending Legacy System Lifespan
Beyond the traditional benefits of disaster recovery, one unique application of SingleHop’s DRaaS offering allows businesses to extend the lifespan of their existing but aging legacy equipment by taking advantage of reverse replication capabilities. Customers simply use SingleHop’s advanced private cloud infrastructure as the production environment and use their aging or undersized on-premise equipment as a DR target, staving off the immediate need to buy new equipment and doubling the lifespan of their existing hardware.

SingleHop DRaaS is available today.
