A solid disaster recovery plan is essential to minimize disruption to an organization and protect its data.

Organizations of all sizes are increasingly adopting DRaaS to cost-effectively improve IT resilience, meet compliance or regulatory requirements, and address resource deficiencies.

However, when determining the best approach to disaster recovery it is important to assess how the solution provides for the recovery of enterprise applications at another location in the event of a disaster. With diverse IT environments, there is a potentially complex set of requirements to consider including different workload types, geographies, levels of on-boarding and ongoing support, RPOs and RTOs. A good DRaaS partner helps clients evaluate these variables and design a disaster recovery program, before disaster strikes.
