Even a minor outage can put you at a competitive disadvantage. Acronyms like BaaS & DRaaS are becoming more and more common but what do Back-up as a Service and Disaster Recovery as a Service really mean? As our organisations become more and more reliant on technology, it is essential for you to have a business continuity plan that includes disaster recovery for all your major IT systems, without the excessive expense of a secondary infrastructure. This is where the Cloud can help.
When the worst happens, all you should need to worry about is how quickly you can get your business up and running again, doubts about the quality of your backups, where the data resides and how you access it should not be a concern. The reality is, in a traditional Disaster Recovery scenario, these questions can lead to major delays. Back-up and Disaster Recovery should be intuitive and instant. Cloud based technologies can make this a reality for you and your business.
The Cloud is not just a compelling alternative to tape. It delivers a high level of availability and reliability that up until now has been prohibitively expensive for the SMB market. However, Microsoft Azure can deliver highly flexible and efficient online Baas & DRaaS to you for minimal cost. Enterprise class site recovery is finally availble at a price that scales with the size of your business.
