Quickly recover from data breach or disruption and resume operations

Disruptions can lead to lost revenue, brand damage and dissatisfied customers. The longer the recovery time, the greater the adverse business impact. A good disaster recovery (DR) plan contains detailed instructions on how to respond to unplanned incidents such as natural disasters, power outages, cyber attacks and any other disruptive events.

DRaaS reliably helps recover critical IT business processes and data to support business resiliency. It also provides comprehensive disaster recovery services, including orchestration of DR processes, DR health monitoring as well as continuous replication of applications, infrastructure, data and cloud systems.
