Achieve SLAs confidently with a cloud-based disaster recovery service. Instant setup lets you failover, failback or test recovery plans, all with just a few clicks.

Disaster recovery as a service, (DRaaS) is the replication of hosting by a third party on physical or virtual servers to provide failover in the event of a man made or natural disaster. A cost-effective alternative for an increasing number of companies is to opt for a managed service for their DR needs. Cloud-based DRaaS boasts the majority of the core capabilities a large budget enterprise might enjoy, but at a fraction of the cost and with a much faster time to value. The typical trade-off is with recovery point objective (RPO) and/or recovery time objective (RTO), where an on-prem DR solution might approach RPO and RTO of zero, DRaaS solutions tend to be on the order of hours, or at best, minutes for each metric. For most companies, this is acceptable. As a result, DRaaS tends to appeal to companies that can withstand moderate data loss with the benefit of much lower TCO.

The standard service model for DRaaS is a baseline subscription that is tied to a service level agreement (SLA) the service provider (SP) is contractually bound to. Some SPs also meter ingress and egress traffic and tack on additional charges, based on usage. The DRaaS datacenter essentially becomes the DR target for a company’s on-prem applications and data. Once a relationship is in place, a VPN is pinned up between the customer and SP datacenter, and application snapshots are replicated to the DRaaS datacenter based on required RPO metrics. In the event of a datacenter outage, failover to the DRaaS datacenter is initiated and business operations are restored in compliance with the SLA.

Advantages of DRaaS

A good DRaaS solution includes failover/failback testing during normal business hours, without impacting the mainstream client experience. It also includes the otherwise difficult task of preserving network configurations upon failover so that IP readdressing is not necessary. Lastly, a common management interface that spans the entire enterprise simplifies operation tasks, making such a DRaaS solution stand out from its peers.
