Disaster Recovery Solutions
Minimise the effects of disaster, and ensure maximum uptime and business continuity with our range of robust disaster recovery solutions. Our disaster recovery solutions include storage redundancy - SAN to SAN - and backup & restore options, helping ensure maximum uptime and minimum loss for your business.
Using only high-performance, best-of-breed technology, from leading providers including Dell, your hardware solution is securely housed in our wholly-owned ISO-accredited UK data centres.
We monitor our network routes, circuits and power 24/7/365. This monitoring provides our engineers with early warning alert signals via email, SMS and web interfaces ensuring we have professional on hand expertise 24 hours a day.
Resilience by design
Designed for resilience, our data centres are directly connected by multiple links with Telehouse North and East coming from different Telcos. This is backed up by a dual fibre ring encompassing Telehouse and Redbus.
Reliable peering strategy combined with state-of-the-art Cisco hardware, ensuring a network with no single point of failure. We also have peering arrangements in place with LINXP, LONAPP, LIPEX and IX Manchester.
In every regional Point of Presence (POP), we include Cisco hardware to provide a continuous unaffected service; this means we can continue even if there a total loss of a router and/or circuit.
For additional resilience each POP has a redundant UPS system and two independent UPS's feeding the equipment. So should either UPS fail your connectivity will not be affected.
Each POP also has emergency generator backup so we are guaranteed never to suffer a power outage.
Our multi-20gb network includes multi-homing to provide the definitive optimised conditions for server hosting. Built for redundancy, speed and security, our UK-based, enterprise-grade data centres deliver fast and fail-safe routes to the Internet.

Under the bonnet
Storage redundancy - SAN to SAN
If you utilise SAN storage as a part of your hosting solution, you have the option to configure a secondary storage unit in another UKFast data centre. Ensuring complete redundancy for your business by enabling your primary storage to failover to a standby SAN in the secondary data centre.
Backup & Restore
With UKFast backup your critical data is copied to a server or storage unit at regular intervals. So should a hardware failure occur, we'll replace it within 1 hour and restore your data to the latest backup.
For added redundancy, you have the option to house your 'backup server' in an offsite location - another UKFast data centre.
Your solution will be backed by a team of UK-based technical engineers available 24/7/365, plus a dedicated account manager.
