GMA Launches Cloud-based Business Continuity Portal Solution

GMA Consulting’s newly released cloud-based Business Continuity Portal solution utilises Microsoft’s SharePoint 2010 collaboration application and is hosted on the Windows Azure cloud platform.
The London-based IT consultancy specialising in the design, development and implementation of solutions using Microsoft technologies claims that it is the first solution to be launched using GMA’s SharePoint Azure Accelerator capability.

Thanks to GMA Consulting, businesses now have an effective, flexible and affordable way to enable its staff to find the information they need if they face a crisis. Users can access the new cloud-based portal 24/7 over the Internet even if the organisation’s core systems are down.  The non-IT staff can also leverage the solution to upload documents and manage contact lists.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery planning is a high priority activity for many organisations. And whilst they may have arrangements in place that provide a backup location and IT equipment there is an issue that is often not addressed. When a crisis occurs how do staff members quickly and easily find the information they need?” said Ben Grey, a director at GMA Consulting.

Grey continued: “Cloud computing is a major trend in IT and we are delighted that we are at the cutting edge of exploiting this new technology. We believe that our SharePoint Azure Business Continuity Portal will provide our customers with the functionality needed in a DR situation although of course we hope they never find themselves in a real crisis.”

GMA Consulting notes that businesses can keep the costs of the solution very low due to the minimum requirements. Companies require SharePoint Foundation 2010 (free download); SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition (free download); and Windows Azure small compute instance with 50gb of storage – approx USD $95-111) per month.
