Disaster Recovery as a Service FAQ’s

Disaster can strike in all aspects of business.  From burst pipes to cyber-attack and even human error, but how would your business fare if you didn’t have the correct disaster recovery plan in place and you lost your data?

Today’s insight is geared up to answering our Disaster Recovery as a Service FAQ’s.

What is disaster recovery as a service?

Disaster Recovery as a Service is a cloud-based data recovery model.

DRaaS is suggested to businesses to ensure business continuity should the worst happen.

A standby copy of your virtual machine is ready to start right away.

How does Disaster Recovery as a Service work?

Disaster as a Service works by protecting your business in the event of disaster and a loss of data.

Disaster Recovery as a Service enables you to fully replicate your applications onto an enterprise grade cloud platform.

That is both safe and secure and ready to start in the event of disaster.

DRaaS works on an OpEx pricing model.

You will only ever pay for what you need, with no expensive, up-front costs to worry about.

It’s important to also emphasise that you will only pay full price when you are actively utilising the failover mode.

Any other time you will only be charged a standby rate.

What’s the difference between Disaster Recovery as a Service and Backup as a Service?

A question that we’re regularly asked and one that is often misunderstood, is what the difference between DRaaS and BaaS is.

Simply put BaaS is where you have a copy of your data, whereas DRaaS is the plan that you have in place to recover your data if it were to be compromised.

Backups are a way to recover your lost data, whether that be down to failure, virus, fire, human error, or cyber-attack.

However it’s just as important to have a strategy in place for recovering

Although different solutions, the two work synonymously together to support business continuity should a disaster occur.
