Server Colocation & Disaster Recovery

Server Colocation - 1U at-a-time
Most datacenters will only accept minimum agreements of quarter or half rack fulfillment. Network Medics' VitalHosting offers pricing by the single server (1U) in order to allow small and mid-sized business the same ability as enterprise to quickly and affordably co-locate and have the means for a disaster recovery plan.  Uptime is essential for today’s business. Without it, your company is losing money, morale and motivation.  Keep your business, Saas, or CDN “always-on” with 1U at-a-time colocation and disaster recovery solutions with VitalHosting.  Our single server (1U colocation) at-a-time plans will give your company access to our secure data center at an affordable price. Whether you have your own hardware, want to use our cloud or need us to help procure the right hardware solution, Network Medics' VitalHosting will provide you a custom managed colocation solution and disaster recovery plan. 

Disaster Recovery (DR)
An IT disaster recovery plan is critical to business continuity - 40 percent of businesses that lose their data in a disaster go out of business within 5 years. In the event of a disaster, your company’s survival absolutely depends on the ability to replicate your IT systems and data. When your bottom line depends on uptime, continuous data protection and application availability are absolute essentials.  Disaster recovery is the process by which you resume business after a disruptive event. The event might be something huge-like an earthquake or something small, like malfunctioning software caused by a computer virus.  Our fully managed 1U at-a-time colocation solutions allow you to sleep soundly at night while we watch over your servers.

Disaster Recovery with VitalVM (Cloud DR)
Disaster recovery options are expanded with our VitalVM private cloud. Our managed cloud and private cloud clients can replicate their entire environment to a disaster recovery cloud with no special configuration or programming with our comprehensive disaster recovery solution. Disaster recovery in the cloud is the latest solution that also happens to cost less than half of the production environment. It can be considered more reliable because the entire hosted cloud (including servers, software, network configuration and security) are replicated to your private VitalVM disaster recovery cloud. Plus, it’s faster – recovering your servers, apps and data into a site environment is entirely replaced by only a few clicks to spin up the replicated servers.  VitalHosting disaster recovery cloud solution has a warranted 4 hour recovery time objective, specifying the worst case availability in case of a disaster. Our SSAE 16 SOC 2 audited data center prove we follow standardized processes to cut down on human error and power, network, hardware and software failure.

SAN-to-SAN Replication
Our most advanced and comprehensive disaster recovery option allows our private cloud clients to leverage our SAN-to-SAN replication for even faster recovery times and a solution that can failback gracefully to production once the disaster event is over.

Network Medics Datacenter - Tier 3 - SSAE16 SOC2 Compliant
The VitalHosting data center is a Tier 3 facility that was originally designed and built for the University of Minnesota to house super computers. Located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, our facility is strategically positioned at the fiber nexus for the entire region. It features 24x7 security, redundant fault tolerant battery backup, cooling and fire suppression systems, connection to multiple power substations and on-site generators with over one week of run time.

What does it mean to be a Network Medics VitalSupport Tier 3 Data Center Datacenter? A Tier 3 datacenter is built to be “concurrently maintainable.” In English, this means that all of the components of the facility are redundant to the extent that any major system – e.g. cooling – can be taken out of service for maintenance or unexpectedly without causing a disruption in service.

Our Tier 3 datacenter offers:

  • 99.98% Uptime
  • Multiple internet service providers
  • Multiple power grid connections
  • Concurrently maintainable N+1 battery backup, cooling, generator and fire suppression systems
  • Raised floor
