Cervalis Announces Work Area Recovery Solutions

Cervalis, a premier and trusted provider of technology and IT services, today announced the availability of 600 dedicated work seats at its newest, and Connecticut’s largest, data center. The work area recovery space is for use as a backup location in the event a weather-related or other disaster hits the region. Dedicated work seats are also available at Cervalis’ other high- availability data centers in Stamford, Conn., Totowa, New Jersey, and Wappingers Falls, New York.

With hurricane season here until November, businesses are busy reviewing their disaster recovery and business continuity plans and taking steps to prevent downtime. “Many companies don’t anticipate the negative impact power outages, natural disasters and other such incidents can have on their business and reputation,” said Michael Boccardi, president and CEO of Cervalis.

Work area recovery is an integral part of intelligent business continuity planning. It allows employees to conduct business as usual under adverse conditions in a comfortable and secure environment that is supported by a reliable data center. These dedicated seats enable companies to remain online, maintain critical operations, preserve employee morale, and keep customers satisfied during unplanned disruptive events.

“Many businesses in the New York Metro area have faced significant interruptions as a result of inclement weather and natural disasters in recent years,” Boccardi said. “Having work area recovery seats at a data center is, essentially, an insurance policy against downtime."

During Superstorm Sandy, Cervalis maintained 100 percent uptime and supported thousands of clients through its data centers. The premier technology and IT services provider even hosted a global trading firm, through which billions of dollars in transactions flow, during and after the storm. (Case Study Here)
