Why is DRaaS Important for Businesses?

  • Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is especially alluring to small and medium-sized businesses without access to internal IT resources. It also lowers business risk by minimizing data loss and ensuring that operations can be quickly resumed after an interruption.
  • Effective IT disaster recovery has traditionally required investments in technological infrastructure and specialized in-house IT staff that were outside the budget of a normal SMB. With DRaaS, SMBs can completely outsource disaster recovery, doing away with the requirement for a significant upfront technological investment. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) offer disaster recovery as a service that provides ongoing monitoring and administration of backup and recovery procedures.
  • Today, image-based backup technology and virtualization are frequently used as the foundation for DRaaS. Using contemporary backup and recovery techniques, MSPs frequently create backup “images” or “snapshots” of corporate systems.
  • In a disaster, images can be mounted as virtual computers since they are saved locally, automatically transferred offshore (often to the cloud), and stored locally.
  • On the virtual machine, business operations can be swiftly resumed while the primary system is being repaired. Operations are then returned to the primary system after the restoration is finished.
