SUNGARD AS Presence in Disaster Recovery as a Service
Sungard AS offers its services to all major industries, such as finance, insurance, transportation, utilities, telecommunications, manufacturing, retail, and health services. The company defines its key strategies by identifying business processes and map supporting applications, prioritizing DR efforts through application testing, moving valuable data from the production site to the recovery site, and ensuring compatibility between the production and recovery environments. In May 2016, Sungard AS introduced cloud-based recovery for SAP HANA to enable enterprises to reap the advantages of DRaaS. The product launch enabled end-users to limit their business risks by protecting SAP HANA-based applications with a flexible, pre-engineered, and SLA-protected DR solution. In October 2015, Sungard AS announced its extension of recovery solutions on AWS to provide virtual recovery services on the AWS cloud platform. With a Sungard AS-tailored AWS solution, the customer’s data can be replicated quickly and successfully, thereby enabling continuous access to critical data and applications. The company has a regional presence in the US, the UK, and Asia. It is expanding significantly into new regions across the globe to increase its reach and extend its offerings to customers. For instance, in June 2015, Sungard AS partnered with Digital Realty Trust, a leading global provider of data center solutions, and announced a significant expansion in Ireland. Through this partnership, the company was able to reach out to customers with DRaaS offerings and grow its business in the region.
