Axcient Offers Complimentary Disaster Recovery Services in Advance of Hurricane Matthew
Companies Who Could Be Impacted Can Implement Fusion for Free to Ensure Business Continuity
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–October 6, 2016—Axcient, the leader in cloud-based IT resilience and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), announced today that it is offering complimentary, no commitment disaster recovery services to businesses affected by approaching Hurricane Matthew. As of Thursday morning, hurricane warnings have been issued in the Bahamas and across Florida’s East Coast, extending up to Charleston, South Carolina. With this offer, businesses can protect their applications and data using Axcient’s cloud-based IT resilience platform, Fusion, to minimize the IT downtime their business may experience as a result of the storm. Fusion setup takes less than 15 minutes and Axcient has staff on high alert to assist any that need help getting setup and to support those who are impacted.
“We have personally experienced the devastating impact of extended IT outages and data loss, and want to help those currently in harm’s way and give back. This is why we do what we do,” said Justin Moore, Axcient Founder and CEO. “Shortly after starting Axcient, Hurricane Sandy hit the Atlantic and while businesses who had adequate protection and disaster recovery plans continued to run without interruption, those who did not suffered devastating outages and loss. It was terrible. As part of our mission to keep businesses running at their full potential, we invite anyone at risk of impact to get in touch with us to protect their data and applications now.”
“We have several offices across the Southern Gulf Coast and Eastern Atlantic Coast, all of which are in the path of extreme weather emergencies such as hurricanes and flooding,” said Dean Butler, Director of IT at Ford, Bacon & Davis. “We have lived through the aftermath of being hit by these storms and even experienced a large fire at one of our buildings. Axcient’s IT resilience platform offers us a tremendous sense of security when facing these large-scale natural disasters. I sleep better at night knowing that our data and applications are always protected and our business can stay up and running. We couldn’t do what we do without Axcient.”
Axcient is offering its Fusion platform complimentary for a period of 30 days or until the impacted business stabilizes. Fusion is able to protect virtualized environments that are running VMware® vSphere version 5.5 or higher. Interested businesses can enroll in the offer on Axcient’s website.
