phoenixNAP’s DRaaS solution powered by VMware Cloud Availability is now available for channel partners

Phoenix, AZ, September 13, 2019 – phoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, as of today enables its channel partners to offer Disaster Recovery as a Service (“DRaaS”) solution powered by VMware vCloud Availability to their customers. Built exclusively for VMware environments, the solution enables simple, secure, and cost-effective protection of VMware on-premises workloads through cloud DRaaS instances.

With over 500 hours of staff productivity and thousands of dollars lost annually due to IT outages, disaster recovery is a critical requirement for modern organizations. Analyst reports project that the disaster recovery-as-a-service market will grow at CAGR of 38.5% during 2018 – 2028, which reflects a growing demand for availability solutions. With phoenixNAP’s VMware DRaaS, IT service providers can address this demand and offer an efficient data recovery option for VMware-based environments.

“The VMware DRaaS option complements the portfolio of services we make available to our channel partners,” said Willian Bell, Executive Vice President of Products at phoenixNAP. “Adding a critical layer of protection to VMware workloads, this option helps organizations achieve their business continuity goals without any capex investments. As a Premier Service Provider in the VMware Cloud Provider Program, we are excited to expand the diversity of VMware technologies available to our channel partners.”

Enabling organizations to quickly recover their critical data after an incident, DRaaS ensures operational continuity and eliminates the risk of data loss. The VMware-native DRaaS option available from phoenixNAP brings these advantages to VMware environments without requiring any capex investments. As a flexible and reliable solution, it is ideal for channel partners looking to help their clients meet their security and compliance goals. Based on VMware vCloud Availability for vCloud Director, a robust platform for managing VMware workloads in multi-tenant cloud environments, it allows for a quick implementation, easy scaling, and simplified management. These features enable phoenixNAP’s channel partners to accelerate time-to-protection for their clients and help them achieve continuous data availability.

“VMware DRaaS offers important capabilities to organizations already running VMware environments,” said Michael Haag, director, product marketing at VMware. “Through phoenixNAP, IT service providers can provide this reliable and simple-to-implement cloud-based DRaaS solution to their clients and grow their revenues. The clients can easily create a DRaaS instance to replicate their VMs to a secure cloud and enable automated recovery of data in minimum time.”
