Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
What is Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)?
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a cloud service model that enables organizations to store backup copies of data and IT infrastructure in third-party cloud computing environments, in this case in the cloud of Ovnicom. This makes it possible to recover access to the IT infrastructure and restore its operation after a disaster.
The consumption-as-a-service model implies that the organization does not need to manage disaster recovery or purchase all the necessary resources for it, but can rely on Ovnicom as a service provider, while only paying for reserved resources and their use when they are used. without the need for the capital expenditure to duplicate the existing infrastructure.
- Planning for disaster recovery is essential for business continuity. In recent years, the frequency of disasters capable of causing chaos in an IT organization has increased:
- Natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, forest fires, and earthquakes
- Equipment failures and power outages
- cyber attacks
Use Ovnicom’s DRaaS prepare for disasters
Ovnicom’s DRaaS solution mirrors your entire critical infrastructure, in fail-safe mode, to virtual servers, including computing, storage and network functions.
The organization can continue to run applications, simply running them from the Ovnicom cloud instead of from the physical servers affected by the disaster. In this way, recovery after a disaster can be much faster or even instantaneous. Processing and data are migrated back to the physical servers when they have been recovered or replaced.
Is Disaster Recovery as a Service what your business needs?
Your company may choose to entrust all or part of its disaster recovery planning to Ovnicom. At Ovnicom we offer different disaster recovery models as a service:
Managed DRaaS: In this managed DRaaS model, Ovnicom takes responsibility for disaster recovery. Choosing this option means that the organization must stay in close contact with Ovnicom and its DRaaS team to ensure that it stays up to date with all changes in the infrastructure, applications and services. If you don’t have the experience or time to manage your own disaster recovery, this may be the best option for you.
Assisted DRaaS – If you prefer to maintain responsibility for some aspects of your disaster recovery plan, or if you have unique or custom applications that might be difficult for a third party to manage, Assisted DRaaS might be a better option. In this model, Ovnicom offers its expertise to optimize disaster recovery procedures, but the customer is responsible for implementing all or part of the disaster recovery plan.
Self-service DRaaS: The most affordable option is self-service DRaaS, where the customer takes care of disaster recovery planning, testing, and management, and hosts their own infrastructure backup on the DRaaS infrastructure of UFOcom. Careful planning and testing is required to ensure that processing can be moved to virtual servers instantly in the event of a disaster. This is the best option for customers with experienced disaster recovery experts.
