Companion Data Services (CDS) offers dedicated, alternate-site hosting services for our customers needing to limit a potential enterprise outage to a minimal period of time. This alternate site service provides you with a “stand-in” service that is kept up to date in parallel with your current operations.

For example, CDS currently provides an alternate site mainframe environment for a customer with a primary data center located in Maryland. The CDS alternate site uses fully dedicated enterprise equipment with software configuration and appropriate data communications networking. For this customer, CDS supports an eight-hour recovery time. Using the same strategy and depending on a number of factors, CDS can lower the recovery timeframe to four hours or less.

If your mission-critical operation requires this type of risk-mitigation solution, CDS will work with you to your satisfaction.
