Infrascale – Providing comprehensive, cloud-based data protection by delivering industry-leading backup and disaster recovery solutions


Broadly speaking, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a cloud-based system which allows businesses and other organizations to establish alternate processing sites for their disaster recovery needs. Like many cloud-based services DRaaS seeks to simplify the process of disaster recovery and make it easier, less costly and quicker for organizations to back up their most important data and to recover it in the event of a disaster than it would be with an on-premise system. The cloud economics of DRaaS make this approach appealing to businesses that would otherwise find it difficult to afford an off-site DR function. Unsurprisingly, DRaaS advantages first caught on among SMBs for which investing in a secondary data center strictly for DR would be cost-prohibitive. DRaaS lets organizations avoid the cost of equipping a secondary site. That task would normally involve installing like-for-like hardware and software licensing to enable a successful failover from the primary data center to the DR location. Cloud-based DRaaS, however, offers the ability to take advantage of resource sharing and the resulting cost efficiencies.

Infrascale is a DRaaS company that uses the cloud to eradicate downtime. Founded in 2011, the company aims to give every company the ability to recover from a disaster- quickly, easily and affordably. Combining intelligent software with the power of the cloud is how Infrascale cracks the disaster recovery cost barrier without complex, expensive hardware. Infrascale equips businesses with the confidence to handle the unexpected by eradicating downtime, providing greater security, and always-on availability. The firm recognizes that in times of uncertainty IT professionals need reassurance that their data is protected. They know that operations can (and will) grind to a halt when natural disaster, employee error, or ransomware attacks occur. The best way to overcome a disaster is to prepare for it, beforehand. With unlimited disaster recovery and failover testing, no declaration is needed, you can test dependencies, and you won’t be caught off-guard when a real emergency occurs. Best of all, there are no additional fees for testing or for spin-up on appliance or in the cloud.

Eliminating Data Loss with the Most Cost-Effective Data Protection Solutions

Infrascale Cloud Application Backup: As organizations deploy more SaaS applications for collaboration and critical business activities, managing and protecting cloud-based data becomes increasingly important.  The leading SaaS providers only allow retention and recovery of deleted data for a limited time: Dropbox: 120 days; Microsoft: 90 days; Google: 30 days; Salesforce: 15 days; and Box: 14 days.  Afterwards, the data is gone forever!  And administrators have no control to recover. With Infrascale Cloud Application Backup (ICAB), SaaS data is ALWAYS protected and ALWAYS available on time. Infrascale provides unlimited SaaS data backup history – mitigating the risk of data loss from human error, data corruption, malware/ransomware, and gaps in retention policy. Infrascale understands that the upkeep, configuration, security, and operation of IT infrastructure is a daunting task. Infrascale Cloud Application Backup provides IT the data control to serve on their terms and on their time. Configure ICAB with end-to-end automated backups or on-demand; recover everything or granular & targeted; online or offline; pick from unlimited version history; and recover 24x7x365.

Infrascale Cloud Backup: With growing remote workforces, increasing threats of ransomware, and expanding compliance needs, the risk to endpoints (laptops, desktops, and mobile devices) has never been higher. IT departments cannot keep up and the bad guys know it. Malware and ransomware attacks have exploded. IT administrators need a backup and recovery solution they can rely on to combat these threats. A business falls victim to a ransomware attack every 14 seconds, and the average payment is $84,116. Despite these statistics, one in five SMB leaders said they do not currently have a data backup or disaster recovery solution in place. Every company needs a secure, simple to configure, and easy to manage endpoint data protection solution. Infrascale Cloud Backup (ICB) safeguards your most critical data and fulfills backup and retention requirements. Safeguarding customer endpoint data keeps IT administrators up at night – especially as workforces are increasingly remote or home-bound. Every endpoint represents a vector of vulnerability for potential cyber-attack. Infrascale Cloud Backup provides ransomware anomaly detection and alerting to stop an attack before it takes hold and you are faced with the prospect of paying a ransom. Additional security features (geolocation, remote wipe, multi-factor authentication and single sign-on) aid device loss prevention to help you sleep.

Infrascale Backup & Disaster Recovery: Whether server crash, human error, malicious activity, or natural disaster, a localized or site-wide incident means unanticipated costs or unplanned downtime – both that comes with a price! According to Gartner, the average cost of downtime across all industry sectors is $5,600 per minute. That is around $300,000 per hour. Offsite data backup is simply not enough – data does not operate by itself. To keep your business running, the critical servers and business processes that manage your data must also be recovered. Infrascale Backup & Disaster Recovery (IBDR) is a hybrid cloud disaster recovery solution that helps mitigate the downtime caused by server crashes, ransomware attacks, or natural disasters. IBDR does this through simple and fast backup and restore of files and folders, or full server and virtual machine failover and failback. With Infrascale Backup & Disaster Recovery, your data is always protected and always available when you need it.
