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
How to choose the right DRaaS provider in the GCC
For those GCC digital leaders currently in the DRaaS buying cycle, Gartner has put together a comprehensive Market Guide to Disaster Recovery as a Service.
The research contextualises the types of providers serving midmarket and large enterprises while explaining how DRaaS can improve IT resilience cost-effectively, meet compliance or regulatory requirements and address resource deficiencies.
BIOS ranks among an elite set of global DRaaS providers, with a Cisco-audited infrastructure for a fully managed ‘zero touch’ recovery solution that costs a fraction of similar on-premise solutions. Housed in the GCC’s best datacenters to ensure low latency, CloudHPT's Cisco Powered Disaster Recovery allows companies to protect themselves from Data loss and Application downtime while achieving compliance.
