Availability of a disaster recovery and data centre is mandatory for any corporate entity and in fact it should be in the agenda of the CEO. It is crucial that corporate firms take timely action as losing vital and sensitive data can create lots of issues with regard to continuity, competitiveness and reputation of an organisation, said Lakdasa Colombage, Asst. Vice President of InTech Solutions.

InTech Solutions (Pvt) Ltd. recently inaugurated an ultra modern Disaster Recovery and Data Centre at Epic Techno-Village in Battaramulla where state-of-the-art services complying international standards are now available to corporate organisations in Sri Lanka.

Well-planned and highly secure disaster recovery solutions can mitigate this risk to ensure business continuity in mission critical operations. In an era where business organisations focus on core areas limiting investments and operations in non core areas, outsourcing disaster recovery services can essentially be a viable preposition and this is what we offer to the corporate sector, Colombage said.

“The service we offer is ideal for an array of industry sectors such as banking and financial institutions, newspaper publishers and printers, audit and accounting firms, government establishments where losing data will be an irreparable damage that can even threaten the existence of the firm. Our offer is timely as in certain regulated industries it is now becoming mandatory to have a disaster recovery plan,” he added.

The facilities available at InTech Solutions’ Disaster Recovery and Data Centre comply with level 3 of International DR and Data Centre Standards. High end server rooms with raised floors, automatic fire suppression systems, bio metric access control and surveillance systems, alternative power sources, dedicated high speed communication channels from multiple service providers, office space and temporary accommodation for operational staff of client organisations are some of the attractive features of the Disaster Recovery and Data Centre. The company has employed a team of especially trained engineers to provide an efficient customer support service around the clock throughout the year.
