Scantron’s Cloud Recovery Service enables rapid recovery of mission critical systems and makes tape-based backup unnecessary. We use an onsite server appliance, software, and secure offsite storage. In the event of a failure, you can either restore your critical data or switch operations over to the server appliance. Free up time and resources and rest assured that your data is secure.

Why Cloud?

Those that go the “on-premise” route inherit the risk associated with server downtime. Most organizations would begin to suffer serious repercussions from a loss of critical systems lasting more than just a few hours. Recovery time and impact from a failed system depends on many factors:

  • When the system failure occurred
  • Service availability for the failed system
  • Service response time
  • The availability of parts
  • The availability of software required to rebuild the server
  • Time to rebuild a failed system
  • The availability and viability of backup data

These factors may delay recovery of critical servers and workstations well past the tolerance level. Businesses with critical systems can mitigate or eliminate downtime impact on their business by dispensing with these considerations and going with a cloud solution.
