Qwest Introduces Cloud-based Recovery Service

Qwest Communications introduced a cloud-based, Real-Time Application Recovery service to keep business operations running uninterrupted in the event of a system failure and at a much lower price point than conventional backup solutions. As a cloud service, it does not require capital expenses or in-house expertise.

The Qwest Real-Time Application Recovery service, which is offered in partnership with Geminare, a leader in the Recovery as a Service (RaaS) market, protects the most popular applications, including e-mail and databases. The solution is fully automated and requires no intervention on the part of the user or customer IT staff.

Qwest Real-Time Application Recovery offers true visibility into the protection and disaster recovery status by offering frequent, detailed and complete non-disruptive health checks.

"By combining Qwest powerful CyberCenter capabilities with Geminare's continuity solution, we're delivering a complete enterprise-grade solution. This cloud-based offering continues to enhance our portfolio with solutions that are attractive to the smaller-size company, yet robust enough for the largest corporation," stated Eric Bozich, vice president of Qwest Product Management.
