|HAWTHORNE, NY JANUARY 24, 2013 Xand, a leading Northeast data center, cloud and managed services provider for the enterprise, today announced the 2013 expansion of their disaster recovery services following increased demand in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The company, already a leading provider of business continuity and disaster recovery services to the Northeast's most demanding metropolitan markets, will add more than 35,000 square feet of new dedicated and shared workspace to their Marlborough, MA and Hawthorne, NY facilities.
"During Hurricane Sandy, we enabled a multitude of businesses and organizations to rapidly rebound from the devastating effects of the storm," said Yatish Mishra, Xand's President & CTO. "With the addition of over 35,000 square feet of brand new workspace, we're excited to offer even more disaster recovery options for our existing customers, while continuing to welcome new clients who are reassessing their current business continuity needs."
Xand's six facilities provided a home to nearly 1,000 customer staff members on site during Hurricane Sandy and throughout its aftermath, with the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania facility hosting nearly half of those alone. Xand was even able to accommodate several new clients whose previous providers were unable to meet their Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs). Leveraging their cloud platform, workspace recovery seats and other technologies, Xand was successfully able to accommodate every client request during the storm, turning no one away, while safely maintaining 100% uptime in all of their data center facilities.
"Everyone in the Northeast has heeded the lessons of Hurricane Sandy and Xand is stepping up to the table as well," said Mr. Mishra. "We've seen a strong market demand for disaster recovery solutions, housed not just in secure facilities, but also on our cloud platform. The timing is perfect right now for more expansion to meet this increased customer demand."
The new space will be available to clients as private suites, shared workspace, and combinations of both, and is scheduled to be online during the first quarter of 2013. All six of Xand's locations are well-positioned within thirty to ninety miles of New York, Boston and Philadelphia to deliver the caliber of business continuity services that enterprises demand. With the addition of more than 35,000 square feet of new space, Xand will be even better equipped to assist customers in meeting their RTOs and establishing secondary and even tertiary recovery plans. Xand's disaster recovery offerings include replication, online vaulting and electronic backups and cloud recovery, as well as traditional tape, physical asset recovery, shared and dedicated workspace and other custom designed applications.
