Indiana Technology Company Enhances Cloud Portfolio with DRaaS

The Scoop


INDIANAPOLIS, June 28, 2017 - LightBound, an Indiana-based ISP and datacenter services provider, announced today the addition of a new Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) product to its Cloud Portfolio. LightBound is now able to offer this service to anyone around the globe. This service provides organizations of all types the ability to protect their systems and data against man-made and natural catastrophes through real-time replication and fail-over recovery for server workloads to an off-site location.

DRaas_2cropped-180x180.pngNatural disasters aren’t the only threat to an organization’s data and systems. Recently, there’s been an exponential increase in cyber-crimes, denial of service attacks, and other events, more so than mother-nature's wrath. With security exposures increasing by the day, it’s not a matter of if organizations need a disaster recovery plan, but when. DRaaS provides the quick and affordable recovery needed to get an organization back up and running.

“Now more than ever, companies need to ensure that their customers and employees have access to their systems 24x7x365,” states Jack Carr, CEO of LightBound. “It’s no longer a luxury, and it’s never been more affordable or achievable. Up until now, this type of service wasn’t affordable or attainable for small and medium-sized businesses. Our service lets the small guys compete with larger companies in terms of uptime and availability of their systems– which has now become ‘table stakes’ at the poker table.”

Key features of LightBound’s DRaaS services:

  • LightBound’s resources and expertise can be leveraged so companies can focus on what they do best
  • DRaaS services allow data and systems to be recovered in minutes rather than hours or days, which is essential to minimize downtime and keep companies running
  • LightBound can serve organizations anywhere in the world, no matter where they operate, so companies can recover to/from anywhere and replicate to/from anywhere
  • It is not required to be a current customer to use LightBound’s DRaaS services

“LightBound already provides critical resources in terms of connectivity and production workloads, so the DRaaS offering is a perfect and seamless compliment for added uptime assurance. It's easy and it just makes sense,” explains Shane White, Director of Information Technology, Carter Logistics. “We can trust LightBound’s DRaaS services to provide quick recovery from any outage, and it's a fundamental requirement that we're able to manage logistics and shipments around the clock."

“Indiana is a global logistics leader and plays a critical role in encouraging companies to expand and/or relocate to Indiana”. All of these companies need to be and remain competitive. If we can play a small part in that greater success, that’s something we can all be proud of,” said Jack Carr.
