Feature spotlights

Reliable, verifiable recovery

Reduce complexity with orchestration, automation and quick provisioning in a software-defined recovery environment. Working consistently with minimal manual intervention or procedural variance, your disaster recovery as a service solution helps reduce errors, risks and dependencies as well as resources needed for testing and documentation.

Greater automation, less manual intervention

IBM DRaaS orchestration overlays existing technologies and provides a full lifecycle approach to process automation, ensuring automated, non-intrusive testing and validation that can significantly reduce testing times and failover/failback. Upgrade OS patches or databases in isolation, perform on-demand DR exercises, test DR readiness and test again, updating workflows as needed from your results. Tune recovery resources to boost performance, optimize costs and increase IT knowledge as you go.

Pay as you use

Our OpEx model helps you predict costs with pay-as-you-use pricing. Reduce variable expenses with predictable, cloud-based utility pricing by the hour, day or month, without a long-term contract. Choose from various price and performance levels to match the criticality and demand of the DR workload in question. Rely on a steady monthly charge for baseline service, and receive a granular bill detailing billing per consumption unit. Only 30 days required for service termination.

Optimized resiliency

Induce stakeholder confidence with resilience optimization, a risk-based approach to investments that protects the security and continuity of critical IT service delivery. Avoid downtime with cloud testing and validation of DR processes for insight into how your organization would recover from an outage, and continuously improve those results without disrupting your business. Provision and orchestrate resources and workflow using a web portal accessible from almost any device, anywhere.

Data-driven service environment

Address emerging risk or shift strategy on IBM Cloud to speed up cloud resiliency orchestration. Setup and implement DRaaS on IBM Cloud n less than an hour without disrupting day-to-day business.
