What does a disaster recovery plan do?
A disaster recovery plan encompasses all the elements that you will need to recover from a disaster. This would include technologies that allow you to continue to work remotely while your premises is out of action and data backups of business-critical data. A disaster recovery plan would also include roles for key team members (or your managed disaster recovery services provider) to perform in the event of a disaster.
Are there available cloud services for disaster recovery applications?
Yes, cloud services allow you to perform most of the elements of disaster recovery off-premises. Cloud disaster recovery solutions are often known as Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
Why do I need DRaaS?
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DraaS) is an effective method of using cloud-based systems to backup up your most business-critical data. Cloud DRaaS options are often less costly and more reliable than their on-premises equivalents.
What is a disaster recovery solution?
Disaster recovery solutions are technologies and strategies to mitigate the effects of business “disasters”. Examples of disaster recovery solutions would include fall-back communications platforms, cloud backups and technologies which allow your team to continue working remotely while their office is unavailable.
