Ten Business Benefits of Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS)

Ten Business Benefits of Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS)

Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS) brings with it numerous business benefits, here’s ten of them:

1. Availability

DRaaS extends your datacentre into the cloud or a secure co-location datacentre. This improves the availability of business-critical applications. Improving availability here is a spectacular benefit.

2. Cost reduction

DRaaS eliminates hardware costs and reduces the need for your own professionals to get involved. You’ll reduce costs and free up your resources.

3. Simplicity

Disaster recovery planning is complex. It requires expertise. DRaaS is taken care of for you, with site planning, architecture, and capabilities designed for you.

4. Visibility

DRaaS makes it easy to see what’s going on in your environment. Setup correctly, you’ll be able to see how everything’s functioning at a glance, instantly.

5. Scalability

DRaaS grows with your business. As your storage needs grow and your application demand increases, DRaaS scales with you to deliver a complete solution.

6. Flexibility

Avoid vendor lock-in and eliminate the risk of relying on one technology. DRaaS frees up your choices and allows you to mix and match systems if you want to.

7. Easier testing

DRaaS has automated management and if human input is required, this can be performed remotely. Testing’s made easy with processes just a few clicks away.

8. Compliance

DRaaS guarantees data compliance with strategies conforming to new GDPR rules. Cloud providers are only used if they have an industry standard certification.

9. Competitive advantage

Competitors with in-house disaster recovery plans run the risk of an in-house disaster destroying everything. With DRaaS, you can guarantee availability and application uptime.

10. Disaster survival

DRaaS gives you assurance your business will survive a disaster. Without DRaaS, your business-critical applications could fail and leave your business teetering on the edge in the event of a disaster. Can you afford for that to happen? If the answer’s no, consider a DRaaS solution for your disaster recovery.
