Disaster Recovery as a Service by ASR
“He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” - Winston Churchill
Every organization should adopt a disaster recovery strategy and plan that keeps data safe and workloads online. Calamities are not capable of selective action.
DRaaS is a service offered by delaware that manages your disaster recovery process through integration with Microsoft's Azure cloud-embedded ASR framework. It allows you to take care of your core business while delaware assures that your mission-critical business applications can be recovered within expectations, before irreversible damage is done. Every digital-age business relies on IT services for core business processes, so although continuity is important, it is often underestimated.
The service itself and its underlying technology is highly scalable and is a match for any business' expectation or size. Flexibility is not only to be found in the ability to protect workloads running in any data center, on-premise or in the Azure cloud, but also in unmatched cost efficiency
- Predictive and efficient cost model
- Flexible architecture: intra-cloud or hybrid; failover and failback
- Suitable for enterprises of any size
