Singapore's systems integrator and enterprise cloud service provider Acclivis partnered data centre company Equinix to set up the Equinix-Acclivix Business Resiliency Centre (EABRC) in Singapore.
The EABRC is the first collaboration between the two organisations, according to a joint press statement on 20 September 2016.
It aims to tap into the burgeoning demand for cloud-based disaster recovery solutions, or Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DraaS).
EABRC enables enterprises to build a comprehensive, secure, and cost-efficient disaster recovery strategy. It will cover the full spectrum of data recovery, risk management and accessibility to work areas in the event of any disaster or business interruption.
This is essential to organisations such as those in financial services industry, whose services need to stay up and running 24/7 in accordance with strict regulatory requirements.
The EABRC provides a differentiated discovery methodology by leveraging DraaS. It also enables enterprises to immediately convert capital to operating expenses by paying for disaster recovery services over a duration of time without hefty upfront fees.
The EABRC will result in businesses recovering essential data in shorter time frames in comparison to traditional methods.
Enterprises can choose Equinix's data centre as their disaster recovery site, and simultaneously subscribe to work seats that are located in the same building for their business continuity needs. By having both under one roof, enterprises can save on expensive leased lines.
The EABRC is situated in Equinix's Singapore data centre, SG1. The centre provides the technical facilities and services required to maintain and protect operations.
