SMEs, as well as big organizations seldom incorporate DR as an integral part of their planning due to perceived reasons such as cost reservations. The absence of a DR plan can put your business in a compromising position.
The benefits of a cloud-based disaster recovery plan (DRaaS) aren’t obvious to many business leaders, despite the huge number of advantages it brings to the table. Here are five major benefits that you may want to take notes of:
COST BENEFITS: Many business leaders still associate a higher cost to DR. On the contrary, DRaaS can help companies devise a plan wherein they need to pay only for what they need. Duplication of companies’ data can be done on the cloud itself.
QUICK RECOVERY: The entire data, server, apps and the OS are encapsulated into a virtual server. Hence, copying and backup to an offsite data center is easy and quick.
STORAGE CAPACITY: With the virtual stock of the entire data, adding more storage space becomes easier with increasing business demands.
FLEXIBILITY: With DRaaS, companies have the luxury to choose the sequence and the types of data that may require backup in the event of a disaster.
SELF-SERVICE CAPABILITIES: DRaaS gives users/companies independent control, making it easier for testing, recovering, establishing failover and failback workflows, and setting recovery objectives.
