UKCloud has launched Disaster Recovery to the Cloud, a self-service replication and recovery solution underpinned by software provider Zerto.
The service mitigates a range of failure scenarios that can affect a local data centre - including power cuts and natural disasters - as well as providing protection against application failures, including unsuccessful software updates, and malicious cyber attacks.
"It is crucial for our public sector customers to ensure that in the event of a disaster their essential public services would face little or no disruption," said Simon Hansford, CEO of UKCloud.
"Having a disaster recovery plan in place is mandated by the Civil Contingencies Act, but traditional disaster recovery solutions are expensive and inefficient.
"Disaster Recovery to the Cloud has been specifically designed with our public sector customers in mind to protect sensitive data and services that are depended on by UK citizens, patients and public sector workers."
