FAQ's

What’s the difference between DRaaS and BaaS?

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.
