Business Continuity and Data Availability with DRaaS
Businesses face potential disasters every second of the day. Malicious actors could be preparing to hack their online platforms, strong winds could leave them without power, or employee negligence may result in customer data falling into the wrong hands. Disruption appears to be waiting around every corner.
Disaster Recovery (DR) has become a vital aspect for both a company’s IT and overall business strategy – with the primary objective being to recover from an outage or disaster as quickly as possible, thereby minimizing downtime.
Your Business Needs Are Not Limited To Backup, But Also Disaster Recovery
Disaster recovery is similar to backup but it is used for larger instances. A complete image of your disk drives and servers are mirrored. The image allows you to restore the system quicker than reinstalling an OS and copying files.
Don’t get caught up on the term “disaster” and believe it has to be a major incident. A disaster can be your entire network crashes and your employees can no longer work for the day (or longer). With a disaster recovery plan, it replicates your entire computing environment – data, systems, networks, and applications – and makes it available when your primary environment is unavailable.
Veeam enables DRaaS

The Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) market gets a lot of buzz, but end users still find it challenging. Many of the products on the market today offer a DRaaS solution in addition to, or separate from, an overall data protection strategy, often pulling the focus of IT away from their current datacenter investments and momentum. These solutions add an additional layer of management complexity, and often leave businesses uncertain that they can actually recover if something goes terribly wrong.
