Disaster Recovery as a Service

The foundation of a solid business continuity plan

IT departments invest in various ways to recover from a disaster. Disasters can be small-scale like equipment or network failure, medium-scale like a complete data center outage or large-scale like a natural event.

Historically IT organizations have had two options:

Stand-up a Disaster Recovery (DR) data center, replicate data to it and failover when needed

  • This is an expensive proposition as the DR equipment must match the production workloads and the equipment sits mostly idle.
  • Some organizations justify the cost of this equipment by running test and dev workloads, but there is no return to very little return on investment until an actual disaster occurs.
Replicate your production workloads to a cloud provider
  • Large cloud providers do not provide any additional services.  Therefore, you are left on your own to perform all disaster recovery tests, failover and fail back once the outage has been repaired.
Our DRaaS Solution

The CBTS Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution gives you the benefits of utilizing the cloud, but also includes management and support from CBTS.  It is a multi-tenant disaster recovery solution that enables you to replicate Virtual Machines (VMs) from your source environment to a geographically-separate DR target environment hosted by CBTS. This solution consists of the following components:
  • Network
  • Storage resources
  • Compute resources
  • Disaster recovery orchestration
  • Monitored DR target environment infrastructure
  • People (system admin) & Process
Our DraaS solution is engineered to be a critical component of your overall business continuity planning (BCP) process.

Snapshot vs. Continuous

We have two versions of DRaaS that are designed to fit the various needs of IT organizations:

Snapshot
  • RPO of 15 minutes
  • Snapshot-based replication for non-database applications
Continuous
  • RPO of seconds
  • Continuous replication for databases or other applications that make changes frequently
Our DraaS solution is engineered to be a critical component of your overall business continuity planning (BCP) process.
