Disaster Recovery as a Service

Allowing recovery of your data with minimum downtime and data loss

Disaster Recovery as a Service makes it easy to replicate and recover virtual machines to the cloud, by failing over from your own data centre to UKCloud’s trusted, cost-effective and well connected cloud.

This service supports and facilitates your own business continuity (BC) plan or disaster recovery (DR) processes. You can easily replicate data and virtual machines (VMs) from your primary site to UKCloud to recover your services with minimum downtime and data loss. In contrast to traditional disaster recovery techniques, UKCloud’s service enables regular, real-world, non-disruptive tests to be undertaken.
