Located in Denver and Portland, OR., the new DRaaS locations are geographically distributed to provide Flexential customers with the flexibility to choose between near and far proximity locations to meet their DR needs. They bring Flexential’s total DR footprint to 7 facilities, located in metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Charlotte, Louisville, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia -- with another expansion location planned before the end of 2019. The new DRaaS facilities are housed within state-of-the-art Flexential data centers, designed according to the highest availability and security standards.

Flexential’s dedication to both security and reliability has enabled us and our customers to face the future with minimal fear of downtime or data loss.”

“Our goal has always been to help our customers build solid DR plans,” said Mike Fuhrman, chief product officer at Flexential. “Flexential now has a coast-to-coast DRaaS footprint that gives our customers seven geographically distributed DRaaS locations to choose from. Our ability to provide dependable infrastructure and connectivity combined with Professional Services uniquely allows us to architect and build flexible business continuity solutions.”
