(Gawkwire) – QTS (Quality Technology Services), one of the nation’s leading providers of data center facilities and managed services, today announced the launch of a website failover service. The company’s first disaster recovery service ensures that QTS customers’ websites are always available by redirecting traffic to a secondary location when the primary server is unavailable or underperforming.
QTS’ website failover service is a fully managed service that provides 24x7x365 monitoring of server performance and real-time notification of failures. Leveraging Neustar’s highly-redundant global network that extends across six continents, QTS continually monitors primary and secondary servers to determine if established performance thresholds have been exceeded, and seamlessly redirects traffic if necessary.
The website failover service currently is available to customers using QTS data centers in the Atlanta, Ga., Miami, Fla., Richmond, Va., and Northern California markets.
“Avoiding website downtime is vitally important to our customers’ success and we are dedicated to growing our services portfolio to provide an optimal, cost-effective mix of disaster recovery services for businesses of all sizes and requirements,” said Chad Williams, chief executive officer – QTS. “Our website failover service provides comprehensive monitoring and initiates seamless failover action when server performance issues occur.”
