CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National IT infrastructure and cloud solutions provider Peak 10, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a multi-year contract for its disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution and other cloud services with Premier, a healthcare alliance of approximately 2,800 community hospitals and 95,000 alternate sites.

Premier uses data and technologies to connect healthcare organizations across the United States and help improve the health of communities. The agreement allows Premier members to benefit from pre-negotiated terms for Peak 10's Recovery Cloud.

Peak 10's Recovery Cloud provides a cost-effective, highly flexible DRaaS solution that ensures rapid recovery of mission-critical applications and data. Built on leading-edge technologies and drawing upon Peak 10's expertise in cloud-based disaster recovery, it enables customers to take advantage of the reduced costs associated with multi-tenancy while accessing the necessary cloud resources to restore services in the event of a site failure ― quickly, securely and regardless of where their production environment is housed.

"Downtime and lost data can be caused by the simplest, smallest error. Due to the private data and mission-critical IT infrastructure that healthcare companies must securely maintain – and the steep federal fines imposed if they are not – subpar disaster recovery solutions are not an option," said Pat O'Brien, Peak 10 vice president and general manager responsible for Charlotte-based operations. "With Peak 10's Recovery Cloud, which is built on our HIPAA-compliant cloud platform, Premier members can enjoy the security, redundancy and efficiencies that our solution delivers."

Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Peak 10 operates data centers in 10 key markets in the U.S., serving customers around the globe. Its enterprise-class facilities are the backbone for its robust cloud offerings. In addition to its Recovery Cloud service, Peak 10 offers Enterprise and Private Cloud, HIPAA-compliant Cloud and PCI-compliant cloud.
