With businesses relying more and more on technology for their critical operations, data protection and systems availability has become a concern that is extending beyond the IT team and into the executive boardroom. To address these concerns, many providers are developing new solutions, technologies and services promising to make IT Disaster Recovery easier and less expensive. With such a wide range of options labeled as Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), it can be difficult to understand what exactly the term means and how it can support your business’s needs.
“Without a robust DR infrastructure, a fire, a flood, an earthquake or even a really bad storm could not only take a business offline, it could take it out completely. Organizations increasingly rely on digital technologies for basic operations, and if the IT infrastructure is destroyed and data is permanently lost, it may be impossible to restore operations.”
