– Ilissa Miller, from  iMiller Public Relations, says:It is a high performance network that allows data centers to maximize availability of superior disaster recovery solutions.  Sidera, the premier supplier of fiber-optic based solutions, and ContinuityX Solutions, a premier provider of managed networking, data center, applications, cloud and disaster recovery services announced today that Sidera is providing high-performance network connectivity between ContinuityX data center locations in New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Toronto.

“ContinuityX connects businesses around the globe by delivering simplified, integrated, flexible and reliable managed networking, data center, applications and cloud-based services – all of which require best-in-class network access, diversity, and performance,” said Clint Heiden, President, Sidera Networks. “The cloud doesn’t work without the underlying network, and Sidera is proud to be the network provider of choice for data center operators and cloud solutions providers.”

David Godwin, CEO of ContinuityX, commented, “As witnessed by the effects of recent Super Storm Sandy in the Northeast, having a resilient, truly diversified approach to storage and disaster recovery is critical to keeping businesses operating. During Super Storm Sandy, ContinuityX and our customers maintained 100% uptime due to the diversity and performance of our network, cloud and data center architecture. Our customers benefit not just from the solutions, services and consulting we provide, but also from the combination of quality partners like Sidera that deliver first-class solutions to ensure the continuity of their business.”

High performance networking/interconnection is essential when providing disaster recovery services.   Sidera Networks designs, builds, and manages multiple physically diverse Gigabit Ethernet circuits for just this purpose.  In the unlikely event that either circuit went down, the client would still be able to transmit all of their data to the backup location.   Multi-homed networks proved more successful than single-homed during the most recent storm event in the Northeast.
