SafeGuard iT, one of SA's leading suppliers of business continuity, has acquired a new specialist disaster recovery complex in Randburg. The high-specification offices are being offered to financial institutions and other companies for whom business continuity is essential. ABSA will be the first to use the centre following the recent outsourcing of its disaster recovery (DR) contract.
The DR recovery centre provides for high-specification workplace positions. As with all of SafeGuard iT's recovery centres, each purpose-built suite contains the latest IT and communications facilities; including PCs, flat screen technology, DDI telephones,and secure data communications.
For the workplace positions, voice communications are provided while generators and a UPS - to ensure a failsafe power supply - support the entire complex. The new facility is SafeGuard iT's largest in the country and now takes the company's total offering of highly specialised recovery facilities in SA to four.
Says Bernard Vertenten, GM of SafeGuard iT. "We believe that this facility may be the largest in South Africa, if not southern Africa, enabling us to handle the relocation of a broad range of IT systems and hundreds of personnel into one site. We are taking business continuity into a different league."
"But there is more to the complex than simply its capacity. The centre will be filled with the most up-to-date technology that any of our clients could ask for. In short, every effort has been made to ensure that the site allows us to provide the most flexible and high-quality services to our clients, on a very large scale," concluded Vertenten.
