Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) Solutions

Enterprise resilience redefined

Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) is a cloud computing service model offered by third-party vendors that provides failover in the event of a natural catastrophe, power outage or other type of business disruption.

DRaaS offers an off-site disaster recovery (DR) capability that lets customers avoid the cost of maintaining secondary data centers. The approach has opened DR to organizations that wouldn’t have been able to afford such a capability in the past.

Typically, DRaaS requirements and expectations are documented in a service-level agreement (SLA), and the third-party vendor provides failover to a cloud computing environment, either through a contract or on a pay-per-use basis. In the event of an actual disaster, an off-site vendor is less likely than the enterprise itself to suffer the direct and immediate effects, which enables the provider to implement the customer’s DR plan even in the event of the worst-case scenario — a total or near-total shutdown of the affected enterprise.

Importance of DRaaS

DRaaS is useful for the following types of disasters:

  • Power Outages.
  • Equipment Failures.
  • Cyber Attacks.
  • Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes or earthquakes.

Having a service back up an organization’s mission-critical data in a separate location helps ensure the organization can rapidly recover from a disaster if one occurs. DRaaS services also typically provide the orchestration tools and resources necessary for disaster recovery.

PSNPL offers Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service to help enterprises build adequate IT resilience and be prepared for such events. Whether your virtual servers reside on our native cloud platform NG3 (for KVM) or VMware and Hyper-V, we have a disaster recovery (DR) solution for you. Get real-time protection for virtual servers in your cloud with our high-performance disaster recovery services, with zero data loss guaranteed for most workloads. We offer a low recovery point objective (RPO), as well as a recovery time objective (RTO) of less than 5 minutes for most virtual servers and workloads.

 

Examine the status of all your clouds on the NxtGen DRaaS dashboard, which gives you the control to monitor all DR actions like failback and failover, as well as to look at any virtual server that needs immediate attention.

We use hypervisor-based remote replication technology, which is distinctly different from any other DR technology. This is essentially a collection of VMs and their related VMDKs, which have dependencies and must be recovered with write-order fidelity. The technology in question eliminates the need to use different solutions for your DR needs.
