HOTLINK MANAGED DRaaS
Unlike typical DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) offerings that are too complex and expensive for most organizations to deploy, HotLink Managed DRaaS™ benefits from the low pricing and unlimited scalability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) together with award-winning HotLink technology and expert resources to support your business resiliency requirements. The affordable HotLink Managed DRaaS solution is specifically designed to provide IT organizations with the advanced technology, skilled resources, cloud knowledge, hybrid IT experience, methodology and continuous service delivery needed to ensure your environment is protected — whether the disruption is a security breach, networking failure, software issue, human error or other more extensive disaster condition.
HotLink Managed DRaaS is built around HotLink DR Express™, the only VMware-certified DR/BC solution that is deeply integrated with VMware management and provides intuitive and automated VMware data protection in AWS — including backup, replication, disaster recovery and business continuity. HotLink delivers seamless on- and off-premise interoperability, so you can quickly and predictably adapt to disruptions and maintain continuous business operations, all managed by the expert services, skills and technical resources of HotLink’s team.

Continuous Monitoring & Testing
The HotLink team ensures the systematic monitoring and validation of your DR/BC site in AWS, including up to 500 restore points for each workload, to ensure recovery plans are deployed as expected and are fully functional. HotLink regularly completes full environment restoration to provide assurance that your changing IT environment remains protected and restorable over time.
Alerts & Reporting
HotLink recognizes your IT team has many diverse demands to address each day. With HotLink Managed DRaaS, our experts handle the ongoing monitoring and management of your AWS DR/BC environment and only alert you when intervention is needed. Additionally, you receive easy-to-understand reporting on the entire DR/BC site status, so we can jointly determine any necessary changes going forward.
Easy Restoration & Ongoing Management
In the event of a disaster, HotLink technology provides a seamless, automated recovery of protected workloads in any AWS region or even multiple regions. Best of all, since AWS resources are managed in VMware vCenter together with your on-premise VMs, IT operations can continue as normal. With HotLink, you don’t need any specialized tools, portals, skills or processes to manage your recovery site in AWS.
Migration Back On-Premise at Any Time
Due to the vast scale of AWS, you can run your applications for as long as you like and scale to any degree needed following an on-premise failure. Once all local issues have been addressed, HotLink provides easy, automated migration of AWS workloads back to your data center, based on the currently running AWS workloads or any prior restore point. No manual steps are required.
