Disaster Recovery as a Service

4 Key Benefits of Disaster Recovery as a Service 

From data hacks, malicious ransomware or severe weather events, any business can be affected by a disaster. Small and medium sized businesses are often at the greatest risk when disaster strikes. A long recovery time after a disaster could be enough to close an otherwise stable business forever.

Disaster recovery (DR), managed as a service in the cloud is often most suitable for businesses who need to know that they can recover from a disaster, but don’t yet have the necessary funds to manage a full disaster plan. Zetta offers Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), delivering an end to end DR auditing, planning, product and process implementation, as well as ongoing monitoring and reporting.

These are just a few benefits of Zetta’s DRaaS for businesses.

1. Fewer Necessary Resources

DRaaS recovery data is stored in the cloud, which reduces the on-premises hardware requirements. Traditional disaster recovery services generally need expensive on-premises hardware and are complex to implement and manage.

Zetta’s DRaaS can be used for a group of critical servers or just a single server, something that may not be economically viable using traditional DR. This means companies can resume limited operations much more quickly.

2. Round the Clock Services

Zetta DRaaS is a 24×7 service, we know that disasters aren’t limited to business hours. We offer a real-time disaster recovery replication solution SecondSite™, built on the award-winning Zerto platform, it allows your business to be up and running within seconds. You won’t need to worry about lengthy waiting periods interrupting your operations or impacting your business.

3. Comprehensive Disaster Recovery Service

Disaster recovery for many organisations is limited to managing and maintaining off-site backups. This is a labour intensive solution that can result in long recovery times in the event of a disaster. Zetta’s DRaaS includes failover testing, monitoring, reporting, capacity management and low Recovery Point Objectives (RPO), giving businesses the confidence that their data will be available after a disaster occurs.

4. Streamlines In-House IT Needs

Many small to medium-sized businesses do not have the IT expertise to manage disaster recovery solutions.  Managing processes like data recovery or disaster prevention require knowledge of business process and a specific IT skillset.  DRaaS allows businesses to leverage the expertise of the Zetta consultants providing a more effective way to implement a disaster recovery solution for your business.

Our highly scalable DRaaS solution is suited to businesses that require external support, experience or resources to provision, configure, test and manage DR. Do you have a disaster recovery plan? Find out about Zetta’s Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
