What is disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS)?

Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS) is an affordable and secure recovery solution that replicates your physical or virtual production environment to a cloud-based secondary data center for business continuity.


RaaS can be tailor-made to match the criticality of your applications and data, and can improve the speed of recovery without increasing your capex spend. The resources can be used on a pay-per-use basis, which dramatically lowers operational costs.

Having a managed service provider provide end-to-end recovery of applications enables timely restoration of your data and business operations. Since many providers are now offering RaaS, here is a short checklist for you to use:

  • Are backup of both physical and virtual infrastructure provided?
  • Are change control points consistently updated to keep up with changes in your production environment?
  • Is data is stored in a secure secondary environment and managed properly throughout its lifecycle?
  • Are contracted SLAs provided and based on criticality of applications and data?
  • What agreements are in place if there is a failure to meet an SLA?
  • Are regulatory issues that apply to your individual business understood and addressed?
  • Can the compute, storage and network resources scale up/down in response to your recovery needs?
