Recovery-as-a-Service drives 195% Growth

August 26, 2013 by Diana Nolting

When Bluelock began to finalize our Recovery-as-a-Service offering for clients and prospects, the staff went to great lengths to ensure we had a solution that would resonate with the market. Focus groups, input discussions and interviews were conducted.  The general release of the product was launched roughly three months ago, and as we pack our bags for VMworld and look back to evaluate how the product is doing, we think the numbers speak for themselves.

In the past three months Bluelock has experienced a 195% DR revenue growth thanks to this new, creative Recovery-as-a-Service solution.

Both SMBs and the enterprise have see the value in this service-oriented product designed to ensure successful disaster recovery for businesses of all sizes. Customers who choose this solution find it easy, affordable and appreciate the twice annual pre-scheduled testing that is included in the cost of the solution itself.

“By partnering with Bluelock for To-Cloud Recovery-as-a-Service, we were able to overcome the cost barriers that prevented us from implementing a DR solution in the past,” said James Shuttlesworth, Director of Network Systems and Infrastructure at Ursinus College. “Our students and staff rely heavily on our VMware-virtualized private infrastructure so it’s critical to have reliable technology in place as well as a partner we know will be there to help get us back on our feet in the event of a declaration.”

With no re-working of the application required, no agents to install and a solution that is 100% compatible with VMware, Bluelock is excited to leverage their new, second datacenter site located in the Switch SuperNap facility in Las Vegas, NV with this unique solution.

“Of all the replication technologies and recovery solutions out there, I have never crossed something as simple, flexible and ridiculously slick as what Bluelock offers,” said Bryan Bond, Senior Systems Engineer at eMeter, a Siemens Business. “They have really cracked the nut and are making my job of protecting data and critical applications incredibly easy.”

When SMBs and enterprise companies are able to refocus their team on business-critical projects and by freeing up time when they leverage Bluelock’s RaaS solution for disaster recovery, the company benefits in the long-run.

"Bluelock's Recovery-as-a-Service solution will allow our team to move the work, time and resources we've previously dedicated to disaster recovery planning to a trusted partner's tested solution,” said Jeff Ton, SVP of Corporate Connectivity & Chief Information Officer at Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana. “Our team will no longer need to spend weeks running DR tests and maintaining two sets of hardware; we can focus on business-critical and mission-critical application success with that time."
