Develop a Disaster Recovery Solution tailored to Business IT systems, workloads, and dataflows

Disaster Recovery as a Service is critical to business continuity. No business should start its operations without having a failsafe strategy to continue operations even during disasters. DRaaS proves effective here as it allows organizations to back up their data and IT infrastructure in a separate cloud computing environment, hosted on multiple datacenters with auto data replication, monitoring, and copying across those locations. DRaaS usually focuses on a short recovery point objective. During a natural or a man-made disaster, the data is restored to the nearest “current” point possible.

Disaster Recovery is critical to business continuity. Many incidents happening worldwide can stop your operations and halt the progress of the business, which include:

  • Natural disasters
  • Cyberattacks
  • Terrorist attacks
  • Equipment failures and power outages

Cloud4C Disaster Recovery services are built to offer maximum availability, and near-zero downtime is implemented for zero loss, null disruption outcomes. DRaaS solution is cost-effective and delivers best-in-class benefits over many traditional models. Through Cloud4C DRaaS, you’ll also avoid unnecessary expenses like buying and licensing your servers, along with hardware and software.

representation of hot disaster recovery

This involves a quick Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Hot DR is ideally used and absolutely vital for Mission Critical applications such as core financial and banking applications.

representation of warm disaster recover

Focus on applications and infrastructure with a slightly higher RPO and RTO. May involve non-core banking applications, DMS, MOSS and print and file servers.

This has a slightly higher side of data recovery time compared to the Hot and Warm DR, involving a higher RTO and RPO. Used ideally for Non Critical applications.

representation of backup as a service

It involves backing up your systems and restoring them from backup in case of any disaster. We implement strategies that help reduce your backup footprint using a method of deduplicating data at each node, job, and site. As a result, you get speed backup and faster recoveries. Cloud4C is known for its global deduplication systems that efficiently execute bare metal recoveries.

Choose the Right DRaaS Management Model: Why Opt for Fully Managed Services?

Before you finalize your decision to finalize the platform and service provider for disaster recovery solutions, you must know about the main models out of which one will fit best for your requirements. This comparison chart below would enlighten you on the reasons why most modern enterprises opt for fully managed DRaaS model.

Managed DRaaS

  • A third party takes over all disaster recovery responsibilities
  • Requires higher investment than other DRaaS models but meets all your unique business requirements
  • Recovery SLA is matched to the unique business requirements
  • The provider will be responsible for recovery in the case of an event

Assisted DRaaS

  • Part of the responsibilities are managed by the company and part by a third party vendor
  • Lower investment is required compared to assisted DRaaS. Managing the model may prove expensive later.
  • Assisted DRaaS does not offer a recovery SLA
  • The client is responsible for recovery during an event but the service provider may step in when the IT team is unavailable

Self-service DRaaS

  • The company manages all the disaster recovery responsibilities
  • Expensive as the company needs to set up all the provisions for the IT team by themselves
  • Recovery SLA depends on the availability of the IT team
  • The client is responsible for recovery during an event

Security and Compliance during Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery is a complex and multi-faceted operation and during a disaster, all your resources and energies are focused to ensure a speedy and complete recovery. However, security attacks and data breaches are more likely to happen when you are in the most vulnerable state. That’s why it’s of paramount importance that systems and data are always secure (at rest or in transit), especially during a DR operation.

Cloud4C frameworks, methodologies, processes and people are pre-compliant with leading regulations and standards in the industry and in different geographies. This is why you can trust us to manage and augment your Business Continuity programs.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • What is the difference between BaaS and DRaaS?

    -

    Backup as a Service (BaaS) stores and secures your data files while Disaster Recovery as a Service stores and secures all the applications, servers, configuration, and data.

    BaaS only gives back the vital data through which the business can get back on its feet. The company suffering the downtime has to create fresh records, user settings, etc. As the staff has to work on a smaller capacity with limited resources, the productivity goes down.

    DRaaS restores all the servers, applications, user configurations, and data in a few minutes. The company can work at the same pace as it was working before the downtime happened and there is no effect on productivity and profits.

  • What is a Disaster Recovery site?

    -

    A disaster recovery site, or the backup site, is a virtual location where the company temporarily relocates during an incident.

    The presence of this location confirms that the company will be able to continue its operations seamlessly as it was doing at its original location.

  • How Does Disaster Recovery Work on a Cloud Platform?

    -

    The IT architectures with a disaster recovery model failover the VMs during a disaster. The cloud platform, on which disaster recovery is set up, continuously replicates data at different locations.

    When the system goes down, the business continues its operations with negligible data loss.

  • What is Disaster Recovery as a Service?

    -

    Disaster Recovery as a Service is a cloud service model that enables data backup and IT infrastructure in a third-party cloud computing environment.

    Organizations opting for DRaaS can regain access and functionality to IT infrastructure after a disaster.

    Companies opting for a fully managed DRaaS will get all the hardware, tools, and solutions through a service provider. It is an effective solution that reduces the downtimes and loss of critical data.

  • Why is Disaster Recovery Important?

    -

    Disaster recovery planning offers superior business continuity. Disasters, natural or man-made, can cause massive damage to the progress of the business. A company should always be ready to get back on its feet in case of a catastrophic event like:

    • Natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and earthquakes
    • Equipment failures and power outages
    • Cyberattacks

    It is a compelling solution to eliminate downtimes and loss of critical data and takes a small fraction of company expenses.

  • What are the types of disaster recovery?

    -

    There are majorly 4 types of disaster recovery approaches.

    Hot Disaster Recovery - Hot DR is ideally used and absolutely vital for Mission Critical applications such as core financial and banking applications. This involves a quick Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).

    Warm Disaster Recovery - The focus is on applications and infrastructure with a slightly higher RPO and RTO. It can involve non-core banking applications, DMS, MOSS, and print &file servers.

    Cold Disaster Recovery - It takes a longer data recovery period compared to the Hot and Warm DR. It involves a higher RTO and RPO and is used ideally for Non Critical applications.

    Backup as a Service and restore - It involves backing up your systems and restoring them from backup in case of any disaster. We implement strategies that help reduce your backup footprint using a method of deduplicating data at each node, job, and site. As a result, you get faster backup and recovery. Cloud4C is known for its global deduplication systems that efficiently execute bare metal recoveries.

  • What is the difference between RTO and RPO?

    -

    RTO refers to the maximum length of time that your given application can be offline. RPO refers to the maximum acceptable duration of time during which data may be lost from your application due to any major incident.

    In other words, RTO is focused on the downtime of services, applications, and processes, helping define resources to be allocated to business continuity and RPO is focused on amount of data, as its sole purpose is to define backup frequency.
