IT-Lifeline Leverages Amazon Web Services to Offer Next Generation Cloud-Based IT Disaster Recovery Service to Mid-Sized Enterprises at Significant Cost Savings

IT-Lifeline aligns with Amazon Web Services and CommVault to architect BLACKCLOUD® Edge to change how mid-sized enterprises buy and use disaster recovery

Amazon Web Services is pleased to see the innovative approach from IT-Lifeline with their disaster recovery solution.

Today’s legacy approach to disaster recovery usually involves purchasing equipment directly or paying for capacity from a managed service provider which is only used for periodic testing and almost never used for a real emergency. Cloud based disaster recovery offers customers the ability to pay for disaster recovery capacity only when required. As the first company to offer disaster recovery for the cloud generation, IT-Lifeline is leveraging scalable cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) with market-leading CommVault® Simpana® data management software to remake the way mid-sized organizations buy, deploy and use IT disaster recovery capabilities.
