BRUSSELS, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- BlueBackUp announces the launch of its new
Disaster Recovery service, which significantly reduces the level of risk for
companies by enabling them to restore their business quickly after a major
incident - at a cost that is considerably lower than a conventional DRP, while
also providing a broader level of service than its competitors.

Implementing a business recovery plan can be both complex and costly. Also, in
the light of the current economic crisis, it comes a no surprise to learn that
almost 50% of companies employing between 100 and 1,000 staff prefer not to
invest in a comprehensive Disaster Recovery Plan.

There can be a number of reasons for this: the cost of investment may be too
high, the business may lack infrastructure or be short of qualified staff. Also,
by calling on a company that specialises in DR that also supplies backup offices
and hardware, businesses are still ultimately responsible for the most critical
part of the recovery process: rebuilding their servers and IT data.

BlueBackUp's new Disaster Recovery offering represents a highly attractive
alternative for companies that do not have the budget or infrastructure needed
to establish a full DRP.

How does the BlueBackUp Disaster Recovery Plan work? - If there is a server
crash or serious incident in the office, the customer's data is restored on
physical/virtual servers at BlueBackUp's data centre (DR site). - During the
time it takes for new servers to become operational, the customer can connect
remotely (via a VPN connection) to the DR site, where its critical applications
will have been restored. This enables customers to restart their business within
a very short space of time (3, 12, 24, 48 hours, etc.). - BlueBackUp can also
make backup offices and hardware available to companies that need them. - Unlike
other Disaster Recovery providers, BlueBackUp takes responsibility for
rebuilding the customer's applications – which represents a genuine added
value in comparison with conventional DR services. What are the main benefits of
BlueBackUp compared with a conventional DRP? - Business operations are back up
and running within a very short space of time should disaster strike, plus
greater flexibility of service - In cases where customers are already backing up
their data at our data centres, BlueBackUp is in the ideal position to help them
recover their data very quickly - Customers can choose the actual amount of time
it takes to restart their business. - No need to worry about the maintenance and
cost of a disaster recovery site or finding replacement hardware - Emergency
spare servers are maintained by BlueBackUp at its own data centre. - BlueBackUp
handles the task of finding backup offices for customers who need it. - Unlike
conventional Disaster Recovery Plans, it is BlueBackUp itself that takes charge
of the entire procedure of rebuilding data. - Customers can also test the
disaster recovery plan with a few mouse-clicks so that they are ready should
disaster strike one day.

Being able to guarantee business continuity should a major problem occur is a
real worry for companies. explains Philip Wittmann, BlueBackUp's founder. But
not at any price - especially in the current economic climate. With BlueBackUp
and by combining backup and Disaster Recovery, every company can now protect
itself against these serious risks, as well as implement a Business Continuity
Plan that will deliver unbeatable value for money, whatever its size and scope.

BlueBackUp is the first online backup service to offer its customers a complete
Disaster Recovery solution. And by expanding its offering even further in the
wake of the recent launch of exclusive data restoration tools, BlueBackUp
clearly intends to set the benchmark by positioning itself as THE specialist in
protecting IT data.
