Which DRaaS should you choose? Download Gartner’s market guide to find out

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Tue, Jun 22, 2021 @ 12:36 PM

Disaster recovery (DR) enables GCC organisations to continue functioning in the event of a catastrophic event. A strong DR solution can make or break an organisation’s ability to recover from such a setback, whether this is natural or manmade. When every second of downtime means lost revenue, disaster mitigation demands quick thinking and immediate action.


As Gartner explains, DRaaS is a great option for infrastructure and operations leaders who want to cost-effectively improve IT resilience, meet compliance or regulatory requirements, and address resource deficiencies. But with so many vendors offering all sorts of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) packages, CSOs can easily come down with a severe case of analysis paralysis. But the DRaaS market consists of hundreds of providers, each with varying abilities to support requirements. These requirements encompass different workload types, geographies, levels of onboarding and ongoing support, number of recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) options, and target recovery locations, according to Gartner

Is DraaS the right resilience approach for GCC companies?

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Thu, May 20, 2021 @ 08:54 AM

As the business world acquaints itself with the new normal, innovation and digital competitiveness have emerged as game-changers on the road to long-term agility, according to a Gartner survey of nearly 2,000 CIOs in 74 countries. And as the pandemic proved, digital leadership is underpinned by organisational resilience.

 

But what is the right resilience approach for GCC companies?

Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS) has shot into the spotlight over the past year, in large part because of its cost-effective role in allowing organisations to recover data and IT infrastructure even in the most extreme situations. As Gartner defines it, DRaaS is a facility in which the provider manages server image and data replication to the cloud, run book creation, automated failover and failback to and from the cloud, and network element configuration during and for recovery operations.

Backup? Disaster Recovery or Disaster Recovery as a Service?

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Mon, Feb 10, 2020 @ 10:39 AM

 

In truth most businesses that have any sort of size will want to have backup and also some kind of disaster recovery. But they don’t always. Often Disaster Recovery is perceived as too complicated or expensive. Perhaps this was the case several years ago but things have changed. When considering your companies backup and DR strategy consider some scenarios: 

 

Which is right for my company?

Its Sunday morning 9 am. You start work but you can’t connect to any of your servers. Your IT checks the server and sees a message ‘Your data has been encrypted. To receive the decryption key send 10 bitcoins to this address’.

Hopefully you’ll be able to restore from backup. This assumes it has been working properly. You’ll be down for a day or 2. The business will be ok but how much will that cost your business?
