DRaaS: Disaster Recovery as a Service
Advancements in cloud and replication technology make Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) an excellent choice for companies that lack DR expertise or bandwidth, struggle to stay on top of their DR, or don’t want to pay for a secondary site. DRaaS is now easier to configure and operate, and you can activate virtual off-site resources on demand. The recovery environment also can be completely integrated so employees don’t notice a difference when using it during an emergency, yet the stand-alone technology won’t interfere with your existing network.
These advancements not only do a better job providing you with the protection you need, but they may also allow your IT department to rethink data management and improve expenses — the technology can be a gamechanger. To find out if your organization is ready to get started with DRaaS, take our online assessment.
