How DRaaS Ensures Business Continuity

What is DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) & How It Ensures Business Continuity

According to MunichRe, 2018 was the fourth-costliest year for natural disasters in the global history. And only half of the total cost of $160 billion was insured. The year 2017 was worse. That natural disaster season cost the U.S. economy a record $307 billion.

IDC’s Worldwide Business Resilience Readiness Thought Leadership Survey uncovered that “93% of respondents have experienced tech-related business disruption in the past two years.”

Unfortunately, a company faces critical risk if not well prepared with a complete DR plan. The core business functions, and operations of a company are severely impacted by the critical downtime in case of any disaster or unexpected incident. And these high downtimes can adversely affect your business, causing serious revenues losses with complete and permanent data loss, client dissatisfaction and damaging your company’s reputation.

Hardware failure/UPS failure is the primary cause of data loss and/or downtime, followed by Cyber Crime and Human error. According to BusinessLine by The Hindu, 90% (approx.) of the Indian small and medium businesses are not adequately prepared for disaster recovery processes.

Many businesses which are growing progressively, both small and large, are becoming aware of the need of a strategic DR plan for business continuity yet a zillion companies have decided to abstain from it.

Refusing to take notice of an unforeseen event doesn’t help instead being fully prepared for it does. When a disaster strikes, a well-designed and tested Disaster Recovery Plan ensures that the critical business operations resume quickly. Therefore, your business needs Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to bring operations back on track.

Not only the adoption, but companies are regularly testing their DR solutions who have already purchased them. According to the state of cloud and data protection 2018 report, there was a 46% increase in companies reporting that they test their DR solution every month and 7% increase in companies testing every quarter.
