With the widespread popularity of cloud hosting platforms, enterprises can leverage new functionalities. One such solution is Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). This service model involves offloading the data backup, recovery and replication workloads from your IT department to an expert managed service provider. By implementing DRaaS into your operational strategy, you can mitigate the risks associated with data loss and create a plan of action to retain business continuity in the face of disaster.
At Trianz, we understand how disruptive a disaster can be to your enterprise. Data loss can leave your business-critical systems without a point of reference, resulting in a pause in business operations until the connection is resumed. A server failure can also disrupt service delivery to customers, causing both downtime and further data loss while your service is offline.
Through our DRaaS service, our experts have helped hundreds of clients implement a disaster recovery plan. With a disaster recovery strategy in place, you can grow your business operations with the reassurance that your systems will remain resilient in the face of disaster.
Benefits of DRaaS
Disaster recovery is an important point of contention for enterprises. Your customers expect minimal disruption when using your services and a disaster can result in their disappointment. By integrating DRaaS into your IT operations, you can mitigate any disruption to your business and keep your customers happy.
DRaaS offers numerous benefits, including:
Bolstered operational resilience – For any enterprise, data loss or other similar disasters can severely disrupt the short-term growth. Without a backup in place, this disruption can extend far into the future, highlighting the criticality of proper disaster recovery planning.
With DRaaS, you can bolster your resilience with decentralized data backups. This means that in the event of a data center failure or a local internet outage, your data is still accessible and usable. Our experts follow the 3-2-1 rule - keeping three copies of your data on two different types of storage mediums with one backup being stored off-site for resilience.
Reduced multi-cloud operating costs – For enterprises that use a multi-cloud strategy, disaster recovery can become incredibly complex. These platforms are not built to integrate with one another, meaning data cannot be easily transferred between platforms. You also encounter additional bandwidth and processing costs when moving data between platforms, driving up operating expenditure (OpEx).
With DRaaS, you can minimize OpEx when using a multi-cloud strategy. Cloud platforms offer much lower data storage costs than an on-prem solution and shopping around in the market can lower these costs further. One storage hosting provider may offer better rates than competitors, making it the optimal choice for data backups in the cloud. DRaaS takes this into consideration, choosing best-in-class platforms to maximize the benefits while minimizing the costs.
Disaster recovery managed services with Trianz
Trianz is a leading DRaaS assessment and implementation provider, who has helped hundreds of its clients create a plan of action when disaster strikes. Disaster recovery is an integral part of any business continuity plan and our experts work with you to build solutions that mitigate the risks posed by a disaster while simultaneously minimizing the OpEx.
We offer a range of DRaaS services, including:
Managed data backup and recovery – Cloud data storage is by far the cheapest option for disaster recovery strategies. But the markets are volatile, and your current provider may end up falling behind the pack. Managing your relationship with these providers is also no mean feat, where adherence to service level agreements (SLAs) is essential for your disaster recovery plan to work.
Our experts understand how complicated this process can be and offer DRaaS to offload these workloads from your IT department. We continuously assess the market, maintaining an understanding of the optimal platform for specific use cases. Trianz experts can also manage your hosting provider relationship to help you maintain strict adherence with agreed SLAs.
Managed replication – When planning a disaster recovery strategy, your business should adhere to the 3-2-1 approach. You should have one backup stored off-site, with all the other backups being spread across two types of storage mediums. The final aspect of 3-2-1 is having three backups of your data, and replication helps you to achieve this.
Our experts can configure your network for data replication, spreading your data backups across three different locations in line with the 3-2-1 approach. Data replication is an ongoing process, which is why we include it in our DRaaS managed service. Our DRaaS services operate around a data framework, giving you immediate access to enterprise-grade resiliency and virtually zero RPO replication in the cloud.
