Business Continuity Services can be a key element in many bigger-picture business solutions from Allstream. Explore your options:
  • Cloud-based Recovery
    +

    Allstream’s Cloud-based Recovery services provide virtual replication of your physical server environment – fully functioning and almost instantly accessible – to ensure that your critical business applications are available during unexpected interruptions or planned server downtime.

    • Cloud replication delivers real-time continuous availability of applications and data without the need to purchase, manage or maintain specialized hardware, software, networking or remote disaster recovery facilities.
    • By eliminating the need to physically duplicate your server infrastructure, you avoid paying for underutilized servers and reduce the scope and cost of your overall business continuity plan.
    • Allstream’s cloud replication services are also highly scalable: you can replicate only the infrastructure capabilities that you need, when you need them.
  • IT Systems Recovery
    +

    Allstream’s IT Systems Recovery services are ideal for large enterprises and other organizations with complex requirements for platforms – midrange to mainframe – as well as computing and data storage.

    • We can provide full disaster recovery and business continuity planning for your applications environment.
    • Our experts will work with you to map out the provisioning of storage and networking equipment, along with the protection of mission-critical applications.
    • We can also help you evaluate the hosting services provided by Allstream’s industry-leading data centres.
    • And we can arrange for the delivery of mobile recovery units to your office in the event of an emergency.
  • Workforce Continuity
    +

    Allstream’s Workforce Continuity services protect your employees and work processes from disruption by providing the physical space and related technological components you need to keep your workforce functioning. We offer both shared and dedicated workplace seats, as well as mobile workplaces, drive imaging services (to speed up desktop computer recovery times) and full contact centre capabilities.
