Up against IBM and Databarracks

BIRMINGHAM, UK – Mar. 31, 2016 — / — IT Specialists (ITS), a nationwide managed IT services provider, is shortlisted for the Cloud-based Services category of CIR Magazine’s Business Continuity Awards 2016.

ITS has been selected as a finalist because of its fully managed disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) platform, BlackVault Managed Recovery Platform. BlackVault enables clients to recover their data, applications and servers within their required time frames. ITS provides clients with service level agreements that specify these time frames, fulfilling a market need for a verifiable standard of service delivery.

BlackVault’s success with Lyco Direct, a specialist lighting firm, was instrumental in achieving the finalist status. After implementing the platform, Lyco reduced data recovery times from 4-8 hours to 1-2 hours.

Head of ITS Matt Kingswood said: “The Business Continuity Awards are highly competitive, so we’re honored to have been selected as a finalist for the Cloud-based Services category.”We pride ourselves in our ability to understand our clients’ business requirements and ensure they’re met, which is what we designed BlackVault to do.”

The winners will be announced at the Business Continuity Awards gala dinner and ceremony on 9 June 2016, at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
