Netmagic Solutions, an Internet datacentre and managed hosting services provider based in Mumbai, and Bangalore's Sanovi Technologies, a software provider focusing on IT-specific disaster recovery management (DRM), have joined hands to offer Disaster Recovery -as-a-Service (DRaaS) to support business continuity and IT DRM requirements of enterprises.
The DRaaS offering will leverage Sanovi's CloudDRM software and Netmagic's multi-location datacentres and infrastructure management services for end-to-end management of disaster recovery (DR) operations. Customers would be able to deploy their DR infrastructure on physical and/or virtual environment to meet their business requirements. The service also provides built-in data replication, customisable DR SLAs (service level agreements) which are monitored in real time, automated DR drills and tamper-proof audit and compliance reports.
With this joint offering, Netmagic and Sanovi will enable customers to deploy a comprehensive DR strategy without incurring huge upfront investments besides providing assured DR SLAs and reducing business exposure to IT outages in a pay-as-you-grow model. In brief, it is an end-to-end DR solution bundled as a service.
Nitin Mishra, vice-president (product management) of Netmagic, said in a statement, "By offering DR-as-a-service, Netmagic has improved the convenience and affordability of adopting a highly complex process and implement it across the organisation in under a week.
"Sanovi's CloudDRM will help Netmagic scale up to provide the service to a large number of customers in a very secure and transparent manner, with huge operational savings," he added.
The service can be availed by all â€“ customers whose primary datacentres are hosted with Netmagic and also by those who have in-house datacentres or have tied up with other datacentre providers.
Raja Vonna, vice-president (OEM engineering) at Sanovi, said in a statement, "We are excited to partner with Netmagic to offer this automated service and enable organisations with recovery methods with the help of DRM software.
