Updated: Jan 19

Maxava’s DR software is a one-stop solution based on clear contractual terms and agreed-upon SLAs that lets your business establish a robust DR footprint at an inclusive and predictable monthly cost. At the same time, it eliminates the day-to-day management of the replication process and the burden of managing and maintaining duplicate hardware. Daily backups can be replaced with near real-time backups that deliver faster rollover times, while at the same time eliminating the many expenses associated with maintaining an on-premise DR solution.
