Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Companies
Disaster Recovery as a Service Overview
What is Disaster Recovery as a Service?
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a cloud based data backup service model that hosts and replicates the business’ data and applications in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. A DRaaS plan allows for business continuity in the event of a system failure.
Business owners work with DRaaS providers to create data recovery plans which outline how to recover and restore essential IT infrastructure in case of business interruptions. Included in this plan is a disaster recovery workflow which details what gets backed up as well as the priorities for data and application recovery. Some companies will choose to protect their entire computing environment while others will decide to only back up vital functions.
Features and Capabilities
Automated test recovery - Automated testing to ensure your data will be recovered accurately
RPO (Recovery point objective) - This is the amount of time between data backups, therefore the maximum amount of data that might be lost
RTO (Recovery time objective) - The maximum amount of time that can elapse before you must have your data restored
Data protection - Additional security to protect your backup data from viruses and ransomware
The pricing structure for Disaster Recovery as a Service software is very complex and is best estimated by contacting the vendor. As a general guideline, you can expect to pay based on the amount of storage and number of virtual machines required to emulate your production environment as well as your defined RPO and RTO.
