CHICAGO – ServerCentral introduced its Recover Anywhere managed service powered by Veeam Backup & Replication (part of Veeam Availability Suite). Recover Anywhere is a fully managed service that enables customers to use any infrastructure or cloud platform as the restore point for their applications, data and servers. That means customers can restore data on-demand to their on-premise infrastructure, a ServerCentral Enterprise or Private Cloud, a Managed Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution, or another other cloud provider.

“People often neglect recovery. But backing up is just one part of the equation, it doesn’t do you much good if you can’t recover,” said Tom Kiblin, VP of Managed Services at ServerCentral. “We want organizations to be as confident in the recovery as they are in their backup. RTO/RPO shouldn’t be unknowns or even variables. They should be certainties.”


Everything accessible to everyone, 24x7x365, is now the minimum business requirement and Recover Anywhere is designed to keep customers always-on, regardless of their application architecture or cloud platforms. With Recover Anywhere, ServerCentral’s Managed Services team works with customers to guarantee their recovery time and point objectives (RTO and RPO) are defined and met on an application by application basis, and that their destinations for recovery and restore can meet the changing nature of their business.

“Hybrid cloud environments are the norm today, but the increased criticality and sprawl of data introduces new challenges to maintaining an always-on digital experience,” said Matt Kalmenson, Vice President of Sales and Service Provider Sales, Americas, at Veeam. “ServerCentral’s approach to availability goes beyond backup, leveraging intelligent approaches to data management and the managed service expertise needed to make Hyper-Availability a reality. We are pleased to have ServerCentral as a partner in our effort to solve the key challenges of our joint customers.”

The Recover Anywhere service includes:

  • Complete configuration & administration by ServerCentral’s Managed Services experts
  • Backup, retention and restore processes and schedule designed around customer requirements
  • Support for applications, data and complete server environments
  • Quarterly review of backup and retention schedule and processes
  • Annual testing of application, data and server restore processes

Recover Anywhere is part of ServerCentral’s Managed Backup & Recovery Service portfolio, all of which are configured, administered, monitored, and supported by the ServerCentral Managed Services team. ServerCentral works with customers to understand their data protection needs and configure the service parameters to support their unique business, financial, and technological requirements. Customers can adjust the frequency of backups, retention policy, encryption methods, data locations and restore processes to fit these requirements.

QuadraNet’s services span across the United States in well-known peering-exchange locations, including: Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, and New Jersey. Along with physical presences in each of these locations, they also offer services out of various “virtual Points-Of-Presences” (POPs) allowing streamlined service deployments in other locations, such as New York, Virginia, Missouri, Arizona and overseas in Amsterdam.

Lastly, an increasing amount of QuadraNet’s growth has been driven by their focused efforts expanding from the SMB space into offering high-quality Enterprise Solutions; deployments that are completely architected for meeting the higher-availability requirements and compliance requirements of a wide-range of enterprises and industries.

“We look forward to working with the VSS team, leveraging their experience in IT and cloud services to propel QuadraNet’s growth,” said Ilan Mishan, CEO of QuadraNet, further elaborating, “VSS’s investment will be key in expanding geographically and providing our clients with even higher levels of service and satisfaction.”
