Good business continuity plans will keep your company up and running through interruptions of any kind which include power failures, IT system crashes, natural disasters, pandemics and more. Business requirements for disaster recovery have changed dramatically. There was a time when it was acceptable for recovery time to be measured in days or hours. Now it is measured in minutes. In some cases, business units are demanding zero downtime in the event of an unplanned outage.

 Data Backup and protection through Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), are services that are inter-linked with Business Continuity Planning. A business continuity plan outlines procedures and instructions an organisation must follow in the face of disaster, whether fire, flood or cyberattack.

Disaster recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a cloud computing service model that allows an organisation to back up its data and IT infrastructure in our cloud computing environment. Dandemutande provides all the DR orchestration, all through a SaaS solution, to help the organisation regain access and functionality to IT infrastructure after a disaster. The Disaster Recovery as-a-service model means that the organisation itself does not have to own all the resources or handle all the management for disaster recovery, but instead relies on us.

DRaaS works by replicating and hosting servers in our data center facilities versus in the physical location of the organization that owns the workload. The disaster recovery plan is executed on our Dandemutande Data Center facilities in the event of a disaster that shuts down a customer’s site.

Benefits Of DRAAS:

  • DRaaS takes the burden of planning for a disaster off the organisation and puts it into the hands of experts in disaster recovery.
  • It can also be much more affordable than hosting your own disaster recovery infrastructure in a remote location with IT staff standing by if disaster strikes.
  • Aids in business continuity when a disaster occurs.
