Disaster Recovery as a Service, or DRaaS, provides businesses with an effective approach to replicating and recovering information from your organizations servers. According to IDC organizations today lose about $84,000 for every hour of downtime they experience. No two companies are the same, and it is necessary to build your backup storage based upon your organizations needs. There are many different backup solutions out there; here are some ways to ensure you are selecting the right cloud recovery service.
First, you must set your priorities. What is most important, Performance, space savings, or the cost of the service? This will help you determine which Cloud backup providers you choose to discuss the project with. Second, you must consider storage requirements, retention rate, and location. How much data will you need to replicate in the cloud? By determining which data is most important, and where it needs to be stored you will help shape the design of your Disaster Recovery. How long will the data need to be stored in the cloud? Some providers will hold your data for a month, while others will hold your data as long as you need (Based on personal requirements). Last, where is your business located?
