Viewpoint Construction Software Launches Viewpoint for Disaster Recovery
By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
Viewpoint Construction Software, a provider of specialized construction software, has partnered with EVault, a provider of full-service cloud backup and recovery solutions, to develop Viewpoint For Disaster Recovery, a cloud-based uniform solution for continuity of business operations and rapid recovery of mission critical software applications, servers, and data. It replicates information stored onsite, promising consistent data replication to the cloud in real time, delivering performance and protection.
In order to maintain effective business continuity and meet and maintain regulatory compliance, firms need to adopt disaster recovery solutions that are able to address threats, from massive storms and terrorist attacks, to cyber threats and beyond. Natural disasters like hurricanes, tornados and floods can significantly disrupt a contractor’s business operations for several hours or even days, and prove dire to clients, revenues and reputation.
Rob Humphreys, vice president of product management for Viewpoint, said “Viewpoint has partnered with industry leader EVault to provide a fail proof data recovery solution for hybrid environments, those including onsite software and cloud services, for fast local restores and ensured back up recovery.”
Viewpoint for Disaster Recover utilizes EVault’s replication technology and support services to ensure that Viewpoint databases are accessible in the cloud within four hours or less.
In the event onsite servers are taken offline by human error, equipment failure, or a site-wide outage, disruption is minimized and users can continue normal business operations.
Janson Hoambrecker, director of customer experience management, Cloud Disaster Recovery, EVault said, “EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Service has become an industry standard, offering a managed Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) with 4-, 24-, 48-hour guaranteed recovery options. We look forward to partnering with Viewpoint on this service.”
