Cervalis Announces Work Area Recovery Solutions

Shelton, Conn. (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

Cervalis, a premier and trusted provider of technology and IT services, today announced the availability of 600 dedicated work seats at its newest, and Connecticuts largest, data center. The work area recovery space is for use as a backup location in the event a weather-related or other disaster hits the region. Dedicated work seats are also available at Cervalis other high- availability data centers in Stamford, Conn., Totowa, New Jersey, and Wappingers Falls, New York.

With hurricane season here until November, businesses are busy reviewing their disaster recovery and business continuity plans and taking steps to prevent downtime. Many companies dont anticipate the negative impact power outages, natural disasters and other such incidents can have on their business and reputation, said Michael Boccardi, president and CEO of Cervalis.

Work area recovery is an integral part of intelligent business continuity planning. It allows employees to conduct business as usual under adverse conditions in a comfortable and secure environment that is supported by a reliable data center. These dedicated seats enable companies to remain online, maintain critical operations, preserve employee morale, and to keep customers satisfied during unplanned disruptive events.

Many businesses in the New York Metro area have faced significant interruptions as a result of inclement weather and natural disasters in recent years, Boccardi said. Having work area recovery seats at a data center is, essentially, an insurance policy against downtime.

During Superstorm Sandy, Cervalis maintained 100 percent uptime and supported thousands of clients through its data centers. The premier technology and IT services provider even hosted a global trading firm, through which billions of dollars in transactions flow, during and after the storm. (Case Study Here)

Cervalis is committed to protecting businesses against these costly interruptions, and we designed our Norwalk facility to allow businesses continuity through access to dedicated work area recovery. During these challenging events, Cervalis maintained 100% uptime and supported thousands of clients in its work area recovery seats and data centers.

Cervalis Adds Work Area Recovery Seats in Passaic County, New Jersey to Fulfill Expanding Demand


Shelton, CT (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Due to ongoing high demand and to address customer requests, Cervalis is adding additional office space for Business Continuity Workspace Recovery. Cervalis will make available over 600 work recovery seats in a new building in Passaic County, New Jersey, in close proximity to their current facility in the area.

Data Center work recovery seats or work area recovery site is a location where an organization can easily relocate following a disaster, such as fire, flood, terrorist threat or other disruptive event. More and more data center customers are looking to create an alternate working environment in case their primary offices are unavailable during emergency situations. This is especially true following recent emergency events such as Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Irene. When a disaster occurs, customers can move their staff to the alternate office location and resume business operations, an integral part of the disaster recovery plan and wider business continuity planning of an organization.

Demand has been strong and has dramatically increased since Sandy, said Zack Margolis, VP of Sales and Marketing at Cervalis, one of the East Coasts premier data center and business continuity services providers. During Sandy, many clients took advantage of their alternate workspace environments in the Cervalis facilities, which enabled them to continue normal business operations even under the harshest weather conditions.

Having an alternate facility to enable your workforce to regain access to information and maintain productivity in the event of an unplanned interruption is important to companies that cannot afford to stop service or support to their clients and business associates. Having an alternate workspace environment customized to meet the specific needs of the customer is the choice of all companies that require ongoing and continued business operations.
