CHINEHAM-based business continuity specialist ADAM Continuity has teamed up with Capital Continuity (CCL) to strengthen the cloud-based services it offers to clients.

The firm, which is part of Centerprise International, on Hampshire International Business Park, now offers the multi-platform Business Interruption Protection Services (BIPs) provided by Watford-based CCL to help protect its customers from server failure.

CCL’s BIPs technology replicates customers’ servers in real-time to ADAM’s cloud infrastructure to ensure that critical IT systems are protected from interruption, failure or disaster.

BIPs work regardless of the hardware or applications a business uses, and for any amount of data storage.

Ronan McCurtin, managing director of ADAM Continuity, said that should a customer’s servers fail for any reason, the partnership means that his company will be able to get systems up and running again in a matter of minutes – thanks to CCL’s BIPs technology.

He said the partnership underpins ADAM’s increasing focus on cloud services, and its move away from the traditional “ship to site” model to faster and more cost-effective server replication services.

ADAM Continuity will continue to offer a wide range of round-the-clock business continuity services for customers, allowing them to recover critical systems within minutes if necessary.

Mr McCurtin said: “ADAM is dedicated to providing fast, effective recovery services for customers whose critical systems fail or are interrupted for any reason.

“This partnership with CCL enables us to strengthen our cloud offering and in most cases we will be able to bring systems back online within a matter of minutes – whatever kind of hardware they are using.”
