The ability to build a disaster recovery environment in a way that is cost effective, reliable and secure is transforming the way that many businesses manage their IT.”

Graham Crich, director, cloud and service provider partners, EMEA at VMware, said: “With more applications, systems and data to protect than ever before, having a disaster recovery plan in place is important. Techgate has attained VMware DRaaS Powered status and we look forward to our continued collaboration.”
