Our Cold Standby Servers allow customers to replicate their servers from their on-premises data centre(s) or hosted data centres into Silicon Sky’s managed cloud. Replication is performed at a server level. The organisation’s IT administrators can set the amount of servers and frequency of the replication per server. Once the server has been replicated into Silicon Sky’s Managed Cloud, the servers are in a Cold Standby state, the server is then available to be powered on and accessible in the event of a DR event.
Cold Standby Servers benefits include a low-cost entry point for DR. The service is available starting from a single server per customer enabling customers to select only critical servers or systems that require DR. The service is available for physical and virtual servers.
