Disaster Recovery Centres

The past year has been a difficult one for both RedDrum and for some of our clients, both old and new. Our experiences, helping clients both prevent, prepare for and recover from cyber-crime, have led us to take the strategic decision to increase the range of services that we currently provide.

We are very pleased to announce a strategic partnership with one of our long standing (and favourite!) clients, Rodney Parade – The home of Newport Gwent Dragons, Newport County FC and Newport RFC. We have previously worked very closely with Rodney Parade on a number of initiatives, including the development of our Clockin module, which was written for and in conjunction with them.

In the New Year, we will be opening a flexible Disaster Recovery Centre (DRC), at Rodney Parade, where the facilities are absolutely unique and are particularly suited to the recovery environment. Rodney Parade is located in the centre of Newport, close to the train and bus stations, with on site parking for over 100 vehicles. There is ample space within the Rodney Parade environment for both dedicated and on-demand DRC provision.

In compas with the Rodney Parade DRC, RedDrum will be opening a further centre, within their own offices, at Llantarnam Park, Cwmbran. The two centres will work in conjunction with each other, both offering dedicated and on-demand provision, to ensure that sufficient capacity will be available to clients, should there be a disaster scenario in a particular location. The two centres are believed to be the first DRCs in Wales. and both will be fully operational by the end of January 2020. Further centres are actively under consideration and by 2021, it is planned that there will be a DRC in Cardiff and a second in Cwmbran.

RedDrum plan to provide a completely managed disaster recovery service, either managing the process on behalf of clients, or by working closely with in-house IT staff, as required. The service will be tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.
