VAZATA Offers Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery as a Service at New Data Center Site in McKinney, Texas

Mckinney, TX, USA – November 2, 2017 – VAZATA, a leader in managed hosting, colocation, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and cloud managed services, today announced the availability of Business Continuity Services that help businesses keep their operations running smoothly in the event of disruption due to severe weather, natural disaster, accidents, outages, or other causes.

The VAZATA Operations Center for Business Continuity (vOCBC) provides an affordable, dedicated workspace at a business-class 5,000 square foot raised floor facility with redundant connectivity and 24/7 data access. The offering includes all utilities, 24/7 entry via dynamic key-card, high-speed Internet, conference and break rooms, business center resources, and 1 TB of virtual storage for up to 5 servers, with additional server licenses available.

“McKinney has earned the distinction of being the country’s most vibrant suburban city, making it particularly attractive for high-tech companies seeking to expand their business and retain top notch employees,” stated John Valencia, Director of BREP & Emerging Technology of the McKinney Economic Development Corporation. “VAZATA is a long-standing member of our community. We’re delighted that they’ve made the decision to support area businesses with this compelling offering.”

“We are excited to welcome VAZATA to McKinney. They bring high-quality jobs in a technology-focused industry, and that’s one of the many sectors MEDC strives to attract to our community,” said Chad Walker, Director of Business Development for MEDC.

Business Continuity plays a key role in any company’s comprehensive strategy to address natural and man-made risks and threats to mission critical processes. The impact of recent hurricanes on the Gulf Coast highlight the vital importance of having a plan in place before it’s too late.

“VAZATA can provide everything from secure data center environments to office facilities and resources that mitigate risk to the organization,” explained Lance Black, CEO of VAZATA. “By offering this as-a-service, we help companies minimize the ‘cost of insurance’ to keep their business operating smoothly even in the face of a catastrophe.”

In addition, VAZATA provides data protection through off-site back-ups, image-based replication, geographically separated clustering, cloud-based disaster recovery services and more. As a FedRAMP authorized CSP, VAZATA offers a unique level of security, resilience, and compliance.
