Monday, 12th August 2013 – Leeds, UK- eUKhost Ltd., a leading UK web hosting provider for over 11 years, is pleased to introduce their new solution; Disaster Recovery as a Service on eNlight Cloud. eNlight Cloud has already established itself as an highly innovative, auto-scaling cloud platform, and with DR service on eNlight, its versatility increases even further. Disaster Recovery as a Service is based on cloud computing architecture, a solution ideal for SMBs and Organizations where cost of DR solution is a concern.

According to Mr. Robert King, the MD of eUKhost - “Many small/ medium businesses (SMBs) lack the budget for their own Disaster Recovery site, but still need a solution that's just as responsive and resilient as their primary site. In today’s highly competitive scenario, even SMBs need to be up and running after a disaster just as rapidly as any enterprise organization as their businesses also rely on online presence. Unfortunately, most traditional DR services are unaffordable for them as they come either at very high cost as they require exactly the same hardware setup at the DR and the main site. This effectively means that the investment in DR site is equivalent to that in main site. Some DR services come with weak guarantees about the amount of data lost or time required to resume operation after a failure.”

According to the company, the need of a disaster recovery plan is critical these days for organization of any size and type with companies relying on a massive amount of data to run their businesses, storing it longer and retrieving it as needed. This dependency of organizations over the Internet and online business convenience underlines the need of an effective DR plan.

DRaaS on eNlight Cloud comes with some unique features which offer huge benefits in comparison to traditional DR setups:-
1. Significant Cost Savings, as DR setup is fully used, and hence fully paid for, only in case of a disaster.
2. Allows aggressive recovery time objectives (RTO)
3. Stringent recovery points (RPO) can be set ensure minimal or no data loss
4. Unmatched Flexibility in terms of cost and utility

Mr. Robert King adds further "The sheer dependence of business on online data created a need for a business continuity strategy that will ensure uninterrupted operation and create a competitive advantage for growth opportunities. The “DRaaS on eNlight Cloud” service brings that flexibility, scalability, and rapid provisioning to help accomplish those needs."
