Disaster Recovery (DR) has a reputation to be difficult and time consuming. Setting Up alternate processing sites, procuring hardware, making data replication, and failover testing are very expensive. Disaster Recovery as a Service is turning DR business on its head. Today DRaaS makes setting up DR almost as easy as settings up a new smart phone.

Backup and replication of critical data and applications to a secondary site is now made easier with DRaaS by replacing the complexity of traditional DR approaches with more efficient and affordable cloud-based services. Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service is not just for enterprises, it is also ideal for smaller organizations that are looking to outsource backup and DR expertize without additional effort.
