Disaster recovery as a Service, or DRaaS for short, is the provision of cloud-based backup and recovery of a business’s functionality and data.
In an age where just about everything has gone digital, and everything that is digital is vulnerable to cyber attack, DRaaS is an essential solution. Why? Because it involves the replication and hosting of your server/s by a third party provider. This means your data and your operational applications are a) located off-premise and therefore safe from intruders who have no idea where your secondary site is located and b) protected by high levels of security.
DRaaS is basically a business’s safeguard from any kind of data and application loss, no matter how that loss occurs.
What exactly does good DRaaS provide?
