Stay Immune From IT Outages with Disaster Recovery As a Service

Your data is the fuel of your business – it’s irreplaceable and you cannot afford to lose it. Whatever the cause – IT outages, natural disaster, or human error – data loss is hazardous to the life of your business. As your business progresses, you will need a proactive disaster recovery plan that enables workflow automation and simplifies recovery when the worst possible situations arise. Your disaster recovery plan should include the following ingredients:

  • Inventory of hardware, software application, and data
  • Business Impact Analysis (BIA)
  • Personnel Control Program
  • Procedures for Information Services backup
  • Recovery Strategies
  • Test your DR plan regularly

Disaster Recovery entails:

  • Recovery Point Objective (RPO) – How often do you back up your data? Whether you decide if it’s for every five minutes or five hours, that’s RPO.
  • Recovery Time Objective (RTO) – How much time your business can afford to have your systems unavailable? Which all applications are mission critical and which are not? RTO determines that.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) market size is expected to grow from USD 2.19 Billion in 2017 to USD 12.54 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 41.8%1. DRaaS or Cloud Disaster Recovery Service has become increasingly popular as a way for businesses to:

  • Restore to normal operations within minutes
  • Increase the capabilities to protect their digital assets.
  • Shorten the RTO from days to hours or minutes
  • Reducing the gap in RPO from days or weeks to seconds.
  • Shift to a commodified operational cost model

No data loss, no time loss

Leveraging a complete DR plan will be difficult if your business is struggling with overburdened IT team. Building your infrastructure can take a vast amount of time and resources. In this scenario, a DRaaS provider can be an advantage for you.

Points to consider while selecting a service provider:

  • What is their market presence? - Understand how long they have been in business and offering the solution
  • Scrutinize their offerings for hidden costs – their pricing model
  • Understand their testing capabilities – how often they perform internal tests, how they share results.
  • What are their security and encryption strategies?
  • Verify their compliance certifications meet your industry’s requirements

DRaaS enables businesses to reduce data loss risks at a more affordable cost and fewer capital expenditures than by doing DR on your own. DRaaS saves you the money you need to invest on a duplicate infrastructure, and your ROI becomes quantifiable.  Gartner estimates the financial impact of downtime at $336,000 per hour2. With proper planning, practice and the right partner, DRaaS can save that cost.
