CenturyLink adds DRaaS to portfolio with DataGardens acquisition

DataGardens' software SafeHaven, provides cloud-based disaster recovery.

By Ellie Burns

CenturyLink has acquired DataGardens, a Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) provider based in Edmonton, Alberta.

The acquisition will serve to provide customers with a cost-effective and innovative way to mirror physical or virtual machine data to a highly available cloud environment.

DataGardens’ flagship software suite, SafeHaven, provides cloud-based disaster recovery by creating an offsite virtual data centre in locations such as CenturyLink Cloud.

Customers can define recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives, and quickly failover and failback with minimal disruption to mission-critical systems.

In addition, SafeHaven delivers point-and-click test failover and failback functions that simplify disaster recover testing without affecting production data.

With the software suite, small to midsize business customers or enterprise departments can quickly set up a redundant cloud architecture that protects them from stress events such as unplanned outages or local hardware failures.

The product offers multiple deployment options, "protection groups" that ensure that a pool of servers stay consistent, DR planning options, and many other capabilities that demonstrate a thoughtful design and practical technology strategy.
