Web Hosting NewsDENVER – FORTRUST, Colorado’s leading high-availability data center services provider and colocation facility, today announced the availability of AppSafe, an advanced disaster recovery service that speeds recovery time while minimizing costs and delays associated with space and hardware sourcing.

AppSafe is a managed disaster recovery service providing a safe, affordable, and flexible solution to ensure the rapid recovery of business-critical applications in the event of an outage or disaster. Fully leveraging the latest virtualization technologies, AppSafe provides a cost-effective, fully supported disaster recovery strategy with no requirement for capital expenditure. Business applications and data are replicated to a virtual environment, providing the flexibility to meet critical application delivery requirements.

[swfobj src=”” width=”300/250″ class=”border: 1px solid grey;” align=”right”] With AppSafe, an image of a customer’s server is maintained in FORTRUST’s virtual server environment. In the event of an outage, data is activated in the virtual environment and end-users are re-routed to access applications and resume business functions.

“With this new service, businesses will have the option to remotely execute a full server recovery or achieve immediate failover using a high-availability solution,” said Rob McClary, vice president of FORTRUST. “The key benefit for SMBs is affordable disaster recovery with no previous hardware investment.”

The addition of AppSafe complements FORTRUST’s broad menu of backup and storage services, and provides an end-to-end disaster recovery solution for customers. Business continuity and disaster recovery services have become critical to many companies because of increasing and changing regulatory controls around HIPPA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulatory compliance standards. AppSafe is trademarked and powered by Absolute Performance. To learn more about AppSafe visit
