DRaaS — Disaster Recovery as a Service

Global Edge's backup and disaster recovery solution in Calgary protects your data, applications, and IT infrastructure from network downtime. Our backup and disaster recovery-as-a-service cloud platform solution is built from the ground up using state of the art tools.

For DRaaS, we can provide a number of logistical solutions based on your current IT infrastructure and budget:

  • at your remote location

  • at a remote location provided by Global Edge

  • at your main location using a VMWare Hyper-V server replication to create a private DRaaS solution

Virtual Replication

Zerto Virtual Replication, the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution for VMware environments, delivers robust business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) for Microsoft Hyper-V and can leverage Amazon Web Services as a target environment. It is different from any other BC/DR technology because it has the fastest and most efficient replication combined with fully automated failover, failback and non-disruptive DR testing for production workloads. It is the foundation for any cloud, public, private or hybrid, as it is the only solution which can effectively federate these IT strategies. With Zerto Virtual Replication, customers can easily migrate production workloads across different infrastructures to increase efficiencies. Simple to install, natively multi-tenant, and intuitive to use, Zerto Virtual Replication is ideally suited for private, public and hybrid BC/ DR and long term retention for complete data protection.
