Chicago Datacenter Creates Suite of Disaster Recovery Services Targeting Small Business

Share Article

NetSource, an enterprise hosting company targeting small and medium sized businesses in the Western Chicago suburbs, has created a new suite of hosting services to help small and medium sized businesses implement disaster recovery.

An affordable DR hosting option for small businesses who depend on their data to grow.

NetSource is announcing a new suite of disaster recovery services for small and medium sized businesses who need both reliable and affordable DR options for their hosting environments. The new suite of DR services focuses on key metrics including how long a business can be off-line, and how much data can be lost during an emergency event. After discussing these key metrics with each client, NetSource helps each client select a package to meet specific recovery goals and budgets.

NetSource has identified four key break points when setting up this new disaster recovery suite of services. NetSource uses a metric called (RTO) or Recovery time objective. The RTO is a value for how long a customer can afford to have their hosting environment down and off-line. A customer can select objectives of under 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day, or 1 week. Another criteria that NetSource identifies with a customer is called the (RPO) or Recovery Point Objective. This value measures how fresh the data at the DR location needs to be when the system comes back on-line. A customer can select the level of disaster recovery service that is required to protect their own business data. When DR is explained to clients in these simple terms it is much easier for them to see beyond the cost versus objective paradox that is associated with disaster recovery.

NetSource's new DR suite includes 4 basic packages that can be modified to an individual's needs. The services include 1) Basic DR Backups, 2) DR Backups with Data Replication, 3) DR Backups with Geo Load Balancing, and 4) DR Backups with Clustering. Each package has been tested and is ready to implement for a new customer. NetSource understands that each client's environment can be quite different but customers expect a proven solution. NetSource's approach to DR means that each solution maintains consistency because it has been implemented in the past and will work in the future.

Creating a solution for small and medium sized business that they can rely on is what NetSource set out to accomplish with these new services. “NetSource understands that not every business can afford a disaster recovery option that is being used by Fortune 500 compaines,” said Craig Neidel of NetSource. “At the same time a small business has the same needs and wants to ensure their business data and services are safe from a disaster ”. NetSource truly understands these needs and has built this DR suite from the ground up to address them.
