Whether it’s a cyberattack, hardware failure, or an act of nature, your IT systems might be unexpectedly crippled at any moment. In the past, to avoid costly downtime, companies invested large amounts of their IT budgets on their own expensive disaster recovery and backup solutions. Thankfully, companies no longer have to rely on these expensive products and now have a more cost-effective option: Disaster Recovery as a Service.
Where a company would normally need to invest in their own servers, data storage and backup power for disaster recovery, DRaaS takes advantage of cloud infrastructure to ensure a company’s valuable IT systems are not crippled by a major disaster. This infrastructure allows a company to mirror their systems and run them entirely from the cloud in the case of a site-wide outage.
On its own, backup only gives you access to a copy of your data. But disaster recovery (DR) replicates your entire IT system, including virtual machines, emails, apps and other crucial operational systems. Quite simply, if these systems are down, your business cannot operate. However, because virtual machines are of no benefit to you without data, DR does offer backups. Ideally, your business should implement both backup and DS for a robust disaster recovery plan.
