Cosentry has announced that its Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering has received a 2015 Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award. For the second consecutive year TMC's Cloud Computing Magazine distinguished the service from among competitors for its ability to minimize downtime, maintain system performance and help ensure mission-critical functionality.

The Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award recognizes technologies and vendors that have built cloud solutions, allowing businesses small or large, to remain active and productive under even the most challenging conditions. Cosentry's DRaaS continues to impress judges with an overall service that includes the following disaster recovery assessment steps:

  • Step 1: Assess all operations and applications to determine data protection needs.
  • Step 2: Classify all data workloads and applications into ascending levels of Disaster Recovery (DR) options.
  • Step 3: Evaluate options for each level and compare costs against the business value of the data or service.
  • Step 4: Design and implement an appropriate solution utilizing both Backup Recovery System (BRS) and Disaster Recovery System (DRS).

"Recognizing excellence in the advancement of cloud computing technologies, TMC is proud to announce Cosentry's DRaaS as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Cosentry is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends."

Recently, Cosentry enhanced its DRaaS offering by forming a strategic partnership with Geminare — the #1 ranked leader in DRaaS enablement. Named "Cosentry DRaaS integrated with Google Cloud Platform," the suite of services is delivered through a collaboration with Google Cloud Platform and enables Cloud Recovery and Cloud Archive services to be delivered to Cosentry's customers.

"Combined with the power of our nine interconnected data centers, our DRaaS offering assumes our customer's IT risk mitigation management and dramatically shortens their data recovery times," said Craig Hurley, vice president of product management, Cosentry. "The net result is an affordable, compliant and secure data recovery service, tailored for any size organization."
