Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity (DRaaS)
Backing up data is a given, and getting data into the cloud is a best-practices backup move. But what really matters is being able to recover and restore what you need after an event ASAP.
A cloud-based Disaster Recovery strategy will help to ensure business continuity in times of adversity.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) from ITsavvy
What is DRaaS? Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is the cloud-based replication of your data on shared virtual servers that are hosted by a provider like ITsavvy. DRaaS ensures failover in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe.
Do you need a strong Disaster Recovery plan? Most likely, if you answer “yes” to any of these:
- You have facilities in locations that are prone to increasingly severe weather catastrophes.
- You have been mandated to develop a DRaaS strategy by your board or senior management.
- You have SLAs that require a robust Disaster Recovery plan.
- You must meet compliance requirements such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, SAS70 or ISO standards.
- You are in one of these industries, which account for 50% of DRaaS deployments (according to Gartner): financial services, healthcare, IT services, professional services and manufacturing.
- You are losing confidence in your current DRaaS provider or your own DR infrastructure.
- You recently suffered a loss of data.
Pure and simple, we believe all organizations should have some sort of response plan to a business-stopping event. If you don’t have one, or if you lack confidence in your ability to restore and recover critical data, we’re here to help.
What is failover and why would you want it? Failover is a backup operation in which the functions of your system (server, processor or network) are automatically transferred to offsite, standby system components when the primary component has failed or is in scheduled down time.
What is Business Continuity and why do you need it? DRaaS enables Business Continuity by restoring the company’s infrastructure so that the business operation can resume quickly and efficiently. A strong Disaster Recovery strategy plans for alternate work locations, devices and connectivity if a facility is damaged, and it ensures that critical functions can continue.
