EMC Corporation this week announced its new Rapid Results business continuity offering.
The company said the Rapid Results offering combines its 6,000-person EMC Global Services organization and network of business continuity partners with EMC business continuity technologies to deliver what it calls a “productive protection” solution for companies within 30 business days.
EMC said the Rapid Results business continuity program includes:
— Strategy and Planning: Assess and evaluate critical business systems, associated information flows, and recovery requirements. Ensure that the appropriate telecommunications infrastructure and bandwidth is available.
— Define and Design: Design a solution to meet each customer’s specific business continuity needs.
— Implementation: Physical implementation of hardware, software, and communications required for the solution.
EMC has formed partnerships with SunGard, AT&T, Unisys and Legato, among others.
Jim Simmons, Chief Executive Officer, SunGard Availability Services, said, “Companies increasingly need to augment their traditional recovery efforts with high availability solutions. Rapid Results delivers to the customer a comprehensive offering, capable of combining the expertise of SunGard and EMC in deploying highly productive, highly available solutions, effectively moving the industry in this direction.”
