As enterprises place increasing emphasis on the Internet and on Cloud-based services to support their business they need a different business continuity paradigm for their data, applications and transactions. Companies must ensure access to Cloud-based applications and data centers even during disasters.
For this reason, business continuity plans are critical to ensure transparent and continuous operation. After all, a significant disaster or excessively long recovery period could drive a company’s customers to its competition, incur losses that cannot be recovered, or worse, possibly force a company out of business. While backing up critical data is important, it is not the end game. In the event of a disaster, it is also about ensuring application and data availability and ensuring information can flow quickly to minimize the negative impact on business operations.
This is where VellOS®, Sonus’ cloud exchange networking product, comes into play. VellOS was designed to integrate private, hybrid, and public clouds, to support distributed applications and services from enterprises and service providers, into a seamless IT environment.
