Thu, 7th Dec 2023

11:11 Systems, a managed infrastructure solutions provider, has unveiled a new Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering, named '11:11 DRaaS for Azure'. Tailored specifically for the Microsoft Azure cloud, this globally accessible solution provides organisations with a fully managed, customised disaster recovery (DR) plan for on-premises, Azure cloud and multi-cloud environments.

This offering merges 11:11's prized DRaaS technology and managed recovery expertise with the immense scale and flexibility of Microsoft Azure. As a result, an enterprise-grade business continuity is provided that enables customers to reach their recovery objectives. Furthermore, 11:11 DRaaS for Azure also reduces complexity, allowing customers to free up time and resources to generate transformative business outcomes.

By levying a pay-as-you-go model, this service offers application-level failover and recovery capabilities. Also, such uses Zerto technology, renowned for its reliability. The new solution ensures seamless automation across diverse instances, including on-premises to Azure cloud, Azure cloud to on-premises and within two Azure cloud environments.

"This new solution is not just a product; we see it as a testament to our commitment to our customers' resilience and success," expresses Kaushik Ray, Chief Experience Officer at 11:11 Systems. He further stated that this release expands and enhances their disaster recovery capabilities and offering both self-managed and fully managed recovery services irrespective of the platform or recovery location. He added, "This truly fortifies our stand as a reliable risk and resiliency partner in the global market."

This fully managed solution comes with a series of features, such as implementation, maintenance, scheduled testing, round-the-clock support, and a dominant service level agreement (SLA) for businesses' recovery time objectives (RTOs). This warrants a guaranteed recovery within a specified time frame and has been highlighted in Gartner Peer Insights' customer reviews.

A testimonial for 11:11 DRaaS on Gartner Peer Review detailed the valuable hands-on experience working with 11:11. The review noted its professionalism, vast knowledge in the DR area and lauded the provider's automation tools saying, "They made the whole deployment process simple, delivering an excellent RPO/RTO (Recovery Point Objective/Recovery Time Objective)."
