Data Center Provider Xand to Expand Disaster Recovery Workspace in Wake of Hurricane Sandy

January 26, 2013
by Staff Writer

Data center provider Xand will expand its disaster recovery workspace in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which hit the North East of the United States in October last year. The company, whose services also include cloud and managed options, will add an additional 35,000 square feet of dedicated and shared workspace to its facilities in Hawthorne, New York and Marlborough, Massachusetts. The new space will provide private suites, shared workspace, and combined options, all of which will be available in the first quarter of 2013.

During Hurricane Sandy Xand was able accommodate all client requests and maintained 100% uptime in all of its data center facilities. However, the severity of the storm underscored the importance of disaster recovery solutions both in secure facilities and in the cloud. The company's move is designed to meet increased customer demand for disaster recovery options. It will also better position Xand to help customers meet Recovery Time Objectives and establish additional recovery plans.

Xand has six locations within thirty to ninety miles of Boston, New York and Philadelphia. The company's disaster recovery solutions include online vaulting, electronic backups, replication, and cloud recovery alongside tape and physical asset recovery.
