It’s Cloud Backup, True Believers!

By Morgan Woodruff | June 27, 2017

It's summer! (finally). That means sun, beaches, frosty drinks and outdoor barbecues. It also means its summer movie season - which these days seems to be a string of one superhero movie after another.

As any fan of these movies knows, they're great: the villain is defeated, the city is saved...and along the way, lots of things blow up, creating a great spectacle for viewers of all ages.

But did you ever stop and think about what would happen if these events were real? How would your business remain up-and-running were your critical applications and information stuck in a battle between giant transforming robots and undead pirates? Most people like to turn off and tune out during these sorts of movies, which is fine, but when it comes to the real world, it's a dangerous idea to not prepare for the worst.

Here at Markley we can help protect you. Maybe not from a radioactive lizard stomping on the city, but from potential catastrophic loss of your company's applications and information. Because, let's face it - your business these days is your data and applications - and if you have a crash or lose access because of a more realistic external event, your business will grind to a halt.

Here's how we can help:

High-Speed Backups: our high-speed backups ensure fast recovery times and low interruption to critical business functions. Uncongested backbone links to locations in Dallas and Los Angeles allow clients with virtual machines to complete backups over high-speed links from inside our Boston location.

Disaster Recovery: we offer clients a highly resilient duplicate of their IT infrastructure in the cloud that's ready to take over the responsibilities of a disabled system. Systems located in Boston are backed up in our Los Angeles facility, providing a scheme that is highly resilient and geographically diverse - with a very low Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).

Hybrid Cloud: offering backup-as-a-service, disaster recovery-as-a-service and storage-as-a-service, our hybrid cloud provides a seamless integration of critical IT systems. Clients can deliver products and services to end-users while still running back-end systems on dedicated colocation infrastructure in Boston or Lowell.
