Service Details

Cloud Disaster Recovery continuously replicates your infrastructure in the SaskTel Cloud. When a disaster occurs, the replicated infrastructure goes live. You can choose to go back in time to a point when you know your data is safe and recover from there. You can be up and running in minutes, meaning you are quickly back in business. 

The online portal and dashboard give you the ability to remotely declare a state of disaster, causing your systems to failover until you are able to return to productivity. You can even perform test failovers of your IT environment without impacting your production environment.
