How DRaaS Solution Works
In a nutshell, DRaaS stores and backs up your data and information in a cloud-based program (virtual machine) so it can be easily recovered and used in the event of a disaster. Most disaster recovery providers will give you options based on the needs of your company so you’ll always know you are getting customized service. This is important to note because a law firm or a bank will likely need more resources and backup than a small independent shop. Some companies would rather keep their in-house IT staff, but more of them are turning toward outsourcing for a variety of reasons.
Here’s how DRaaS usually works (though different vendors may have different methodologies). Most of the leading DRaaS solutions are hybrid – meaning there is a local (on-premise) appliance and data is replicated to a private, public or vendor cloud.
