Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) is gaining momentum and quickly becoming an essential service in a time when businesses cannot afford to lose important data.

DRaaS provides remote data and application hosting to protect a business in the event of a disaster.

DRaaS is defined as providing a remotely hosted disaster recovery service to protect a business’s data and applications.

Here’s a quick explanation of the top benefits of DRaaS:

Free up IT resources

It can take weeks or even months for a business to build a disaster recovery site. Utilizing DRaaS can cut that time to merely days or even just hours. This saves the IT department the time of building – and managing – their own disaster recovery site.  

Save Money

The costs associated with a disaster recovery site are numerous. Many, or even all, of these expenses can be eliminated by using DRaaS from a provider. A DRaaS would cut out the following expenses of owning a secondary site:

  • Owning or leasing space for storage
  • Monthly cost of electricity and internet bandwidth
  • Purchase or lease of servers and network equipment
  • Travel to and from data centers or hiring onsite staff

Acquire interoperability

DRaaS solutions are compatible with dissimilar systems so organizations can protect servers across different hypervisors and replicate data between dissimilar storage systems.
