City datacentres will have access to faster disaster recovery back-up with the launch of a new service from Compaq.

The service, launched in collaboration with BT, will allow data replication of up to 100mbps - four times faster than is currently available - said Shaun McCaughan, Compaq's business continuity solutions manager. This would make data replication more scalable, as the Internet and e-commerce place higher demands on banking applications.

Replicated systems will be hosted in two Compaq centres - one in the City and another in Holborn - each running a Compaq storage area network with category six fibre channel cabling provided by BT. Applications can be replicated over a distance of 40km, rising to 70km later this year.

An average installation will cost about £250,000. Compaq is hoping to sell the service following high-profile e-business outages such as those at Charles Schwabb last year.
