Disaster Recovery Services on Cloud Based Solutions


 It is essential for organizations to be well prepared for all types of disasters, whether in the form of hardware failures, cyberattacks or even natural disasters. The business continuity of a company in the event of a disaster is dependent, to a major extent, on its ability to replicate the systems and data.

Loss of data can result in a serious financial impact to organizations and may even damage their reputation due to loss of customer confidence. Hence, proper planning and creation of a roadmap for dealing with potential disasters are essential for minimizing the negative impact on a company in the long-term.

Types of Cloud Disaster Recovery


Cloud-based data protection services are of three types:

  • Backup as a Service (BaaS)
  • Recovery as a Service (RaaS)
  • Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS)

Using BaaS, Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) backup and restore the contracted data. RaaS is an extension of BaaS, where applications are also restored from the cloud in addition to the data.

DRaaS is much more extensive than RaaS and includes cloud-based failover, in addition to backup and recovery services. DRaaS adoption is essential for organizations requiring 100% availability of their critical applications.

Benefits of Implementing Cloud-based Disaster Recovery


There are several benefits of hosting a DR program in the cloud. Key benefits include:

  • Elimination of back-up using disks and tapes:

    Cloud disaster recovery involves real-time data back-up in the cloud and eliminates the need for daily backup with disks, tapes, flash drives and other options.

  • Off-site storage of mission-critical data:

    Widely-dispersed cloud servers, which are redundantly designed in remote geographical locations ensure that data is recovered, and production is restarted on time if the production center is partially or even fully destroyed.

  • Cost reduction:

    A cloud DR solution is cost-effective as organizations do not require to duplicate costly hardware and need to pay only for the services availed from the cloud service provider.

  • Reliable and easier implementation:

    Data restore functions can give rise to problems in case of physical backup using tape drives, disks, etc., unlike cloud restoration, which has a reliability of at least 99%.

  • Faster recovery:

    Cloud-based DR drastically reduces the time for the Recovery Point Objective (RPO), the specific period an organization decides to withstand data loss, and Recovery Time Objective (RTO), the maximum time an organization can afford system downtime, from weeks to days and hours.

  • Scalability:
    Utilization of the Cloud DR services can be scaled up or down as per business requirements, with payment required only for the actual use.
  • Efficiency:
    Storage of data in the cloud ensures lower capital costs and greater efficiency in disaster management as the need for large servers and complex hardware is eliminated.
