Reasons for Disaster Recovery to the Cloud adoption include:

Maintain and restore services from multiple virtualisation technologies

Survive outages in your VMware or Hyper-V powered datacentre by recovering workloads and restoring services to UKCloud’s Enterprise Compute Cloud platform.

Benefit from cost effective disaster recovery

Our solution means you can immediately reduce the cost of disaster recovery and business continuity plans by only paying for what you use; no need to maintain additional sites and hardware that isn’t utilised.

Self-service management tools

Protection and recovery is in your control via our self-service portals. No need to maintain multiple tools that require manual processes to complete the recovery; ensuring your recovery works the same way, every time.

Trial failovers

Avoid nasty surprises by ensuring your disaster recovery and business continuity plans can be successfully implemented; safely simulating them without affecting live workloads or data.

Embrace technology evolution and digital transformation

With ongoing pressure to embrace new technology, whilst simultaneously maintaining existing services, this solution allows you to test enterprise or legacy applications on the UKCloud platform, without affecting live services.


Roll back to a specific safe point

Use the journal feature which allows you to restore workloads to a known good state from up to 28 days before the DR event. This provides you with confidence that you are restoring to a clean restore point which is not affected by any incident such as malware or bad software updates to ensure the safety of your data.

This enables you to recover applications and services with confidence in the event of local failure via a cloud platform which is connected to PSN and N3/HSCN communities, has multiple security domains and has 100% UK sovereignty.
