Herndon, VA — February 20, 2013
Northern Virginia-based managed IT and data center provider InfoRelay Online Systems, Inc. announces the addition of full IT disaster recovery (DR) plan consulting to its core services package.
Recent natural disasters have prompted some businesses to prioritize disaster recovery planning more adamantly, primarily those that suffered from the two weeks of power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy, and those included in the 650,000 homes and businesses without power during the most recent blizzard, Nemo. Managed IT providers like InfoRelay attempt to prevent operational interruptions for companies that are not in a position to take on service interruptions or mission-critical data loss.
The 17 year-old IT company provides business-continuity solutions for Washington DC-area businesses, as well as companies nationwide, that are at risk of outages caused by natural disasters, power failures, and other unexpected circumstances. InfoRelay President Russell Weiss explains, “Through unique integration of InfoRelay’s managed IT services, we provide agile disaster recovery plans for businesses by offering services such as InfoRelay’s newly upgraded SnapScale™ Cloud hosting platform, InfoSecure™ 448-bit encrypted automated backup solutions, highly secured Colocation hosting, and a fully redundant network infrastructure comprised of 14 nationwide SAS70 Type 2 and SSAE16 Type 2 certified data centers.“
Disaster recovery planning, which often includes redundant network and power configurations helps companies prevent losses during situations that are beyond the firm’s control. Services like remote colocation hosting provide redundancies that act as stop-loss for vital aspects of a company’s infrastructure, including e-Commerce platforms, email servers, web applications, mission-critical data storage, network security architecture, and internal connectivity. These vital infrastructure components are covered by InfoRelay’s disaster recovery planning services, explains Marketing Coordinator Jonathan Maxim, “While no unexpected business interruption event goes totally without loss, InfoRelay helps clients minimize damages by ensuring IT continuity through a multi-homed, and fully redundant network that offers 99.999% uptime. With the help of our Sales Engineers, Systems Administrators and Account Executives, client firms strategically combine our various managed IT services to implement DR plans based on their unique needs.”
