Seattle, Wash. – January 4, 2023 Skytap announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Skytap as a 2022 Backup and Disaster Recovery Award winner, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine. The Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award recognizes technologies and vendors that have built cloud solutions empowering businesses, small or large, to remain active and productive under even the most challenging conditions, minimizing lost business opportunities.
“Recognizing excellence in the advancement of cloud computing technologies, Cloud Computing magazine is proud to announce Skytap as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Skytap is being honored for its achievement in bringing innovation to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends.”
Now, more than ever, business users and customers have high expectations for system reliability and availability. Skytap was recognized for success helping enterprises gain peace of mind with cloud-based Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) for legacy or traditional applications running on IBM Power hardware. This includes cold and warm off-site recovery for applications running on IBM i, AIX, Linux on Power, and x86 platforms within the data center, as well as across Skytap’s geographic regions. Once workloads are running in Skytap, core cloud infrastructure capabilities including capacity on-demand, self-service provisioning, and high availability make applications more broadly available, scalable, and resilient to unplanned downtime.
Cloud backups and DR are particularly applicable for traditional IBM i and AIX workloads because these applications are typically complex, highly customized, and critical to the business’s daily operation. Examples include a flight reservation system for an airline or an ERP system. Any interruptions in these services, even small ones, can cause major business disruptions or revenue loss. DR and backups are essential to maintaining high performance of these crucial systems. A recent example of this is when SPAR South Africa swiftly migrated its IBM Power Systems to Skytap on Azure to ensure business continuity when civil unrest threatened the retailer’s data centers.
