Of all the business areas, the IT infrastructure of an organization is more susceptible to the impact of disastrous events. What’s more, IT recovery can be exceedingly traumatic to a business.
IBM’s DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) – Offering Prompt Recovery from IT Outage
Analysts recommend different approaches to planning recovery from IT disasters, but IBM’s IT recovery service stands alone. IBM provides “rapid recovery”, followed by “continuous replication” of all the critical aspects of IT infrastructure. DRaaS eradicates redundancy of on-site recovery servers, and its optimized resiliency offers verifiable recovery with greater automation through end-to-end services. Besides, DRaaS facilitates business with dramatic minimization of RTO (Recovery Time Object) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective).
While it’s clear IBM’s recovery service can protect businesses from catastrophic disasters, it also offers protection from less dramatic but equally devastating disruptions. Results from this year’s IDG Enterprise Research Survey have shown ransomware attacks are climbing. While the threat to IT security is increasing, organizations can mitigate losses reducing RTO and RPO with DRaaS.
Here are some more DRaaS features that make it a powerhouse for IT recovery:
- DRaaS can run disaster recovery tests without impeding the replication of data, while keeping costs low
- DRaaS offers an “Alternate Work Area,” for businesses, so they don’t experience downtime due to disruptions to their locations
