As we all know that disasters are unpredictable that can occur anywhere, anytime without warning, it can be highly stressful, expensive and time taking to recover from them. However, if one has planned in advance and ready with a recovery plan, surviving with comparatively minimal loss is possible.

With extensive business risks, prioritizing a disaster recovery strategy is a recurrent behavior among enterprises, often without significant progress. Along with traditional disaster recovery solutions, businesses also need to plan the budget for recovery which includes tough decision making as to which application will be covered and which will be excluded. The conceptualization and decision making has been simplified with the possibility of virtualization of IT resources and offerings of private & public cloud disaster recovery. The contemporary technology has made disaster recovery significantly manageable and affordable, allowing increased protection for all applications at the time of an unfavorable situation.

At RIM Guru, our disaster recovery-as-a-service solution is advantageously prepared for you to eliminate the purchasing cost of infrastructure and software, which is otherwise a requisite requirement for a secondary or tertiary disaster recovery site. Our disaster recovery solution is prepared considering your operating budget and gives you the benefit of paying within the same. With Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) you not only backup the data, you also secure the entire environment by replicating infrastructure and applications to the cloud.

As quoted by John P. Morency, Research Vice President, Gartner, "DRaaS is the first cloud service to offer value for an entire production infrastructure, all the servers and all the storage."

The rise of critical IT situations and cost attached to its recovery brings in the need for a DRaaS solution. For small to mid-size businesses where there is lack of necessary expertise to provision, configure and test a recovery plan, DRaaS plays an essential role. According to the poll conducted by a NFIB National Small Business, it is noted that man-made disasters affect 10% of all small businesses and an astounding 30% have been impacted by natural disasters. While there is no escape from IT disaster, customers expect a speedy recovery, which is possible with a well-planned IT disaster recovery solution. There are numerous businesses that fail year by year as a simple IT disaster solution like online backup or DRaas was not in place.

  • Machines & Hardware Failure - Though expensive, it is the only way a company can eliminate any single point of failure in IT infrastructure in order to make sure that hardware failure does not interrupt services or cause data loss.
  • Only Human make Mistakes - This is amongst the biggest mistakes to not consider prevention and correction methods. While ensuring that your data is regularly backed up, you restore it to an error-free state.
  • Nature is Unpredictable - We all have witnessed disaster and know that it can happen anywhere and anytime. Hence, businesses without a recovery plan find it most difficult or in some cases even impossible to resume operations after a major disaster.
  • 24 X 7 X 365 Access to information - Now days, consumers expects access to information whenever they require.

It is undisputable that every business is looking to protect its operations from downtime and loss of data in the best possible manner. However, due to lack of internal expertise or budget required for implementation of a recovery plan, many businesses fail. Disaster recovery-as-a-service is a relief to such companies to ensure that their data is safe and readily available even after a disaster. Planning a Disaster recovery comes with many benefits, few of them are:

  • Providing a sense of security
  • Minimizing risk of delays
  • Guaranteeing standby systems reliability
  • Providing a standard for testing the plan
  • Minimizing decision-making during a disaster
  • Reducing potential legal liabilities
  • Lowering stressful work environment

By replicating data to cloud machines you can protect cloud as well as on-premises production instances. In other words, replicating data is suitable for both cloud-VM-to-cloud-VM and on-premises-to-cloud-VM data protection. DRaaS provides the following key elements:

  • Incremental backups or snapshots replicate all protected systems at intervals set by the user for each system
  • Full site, system, disk, and file recovery via a completely user-driven, self-service portal.
  • Fast SLA-based data recovery.
  • WAN optimization between the customer site and the cloud that enables full data mobility at reduced bandwidth and storage utilization and cost.
  • Automated Data validation.
  • DR rehearsal that demonstrates the viability of the DR plan.
