In the event of a disaster, resuming business operations as quickly as possible and without any detrimental data loss is paramount, so implementing an effective disaster recovery strategy is crucial for businesses of all sizes. In this article, we’ll look at how to achieve low RTO with Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to ultimately improve business continuity and resilience in the event of an unexpected failure or disaster.
What is DRaaS
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) provides organizations a third-party cloud environment to back up their data and IT infrastructure through an as-a-service subscription model. By opting for DRaaS, businesses forego the huge investment and hassle of setting up and maintaining their Disaster Recovery solution, and instead rely on a service provider for a comprehensive and easily-deployed solution.
What is RTO
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is the time interval between a disruption occurring and the point at which your business is back up and running as usual. Time is money after all, so resuming business operations in as little time as possible in the event of a disaster is critical.
Achieving the lowest possible RTO should be a huge priority for businesses when choosing their backup and disaster recovery solutions, and opting for DRaaS makes it attainable.
The importance of low RTO
Reduce financial loss
Every minute that your system is not functional your business is quickly losing revenue – with the cost sometimes being exorbitant. Incurring what could be avoidable financial loss due to a lack of, or an insufficient, DR solution, can be extremely detrimental for any business. NetShop ISP’s DRaaS uses the core of Acronis Cloud Infrastructure, meaning that at the time that a disaster occurs on a live server or device, switching to a backup takes up to just 5 minutes.
Excessive interruption to operations can set businesses back in more ways than just financially. Businesses often depend on many different components for efficient operations to ensue. With NetShop’s DRaaS, customers need not worry about reaching any data limitations or bandwidth caps, as the software itself is limitless – so all critical processes can be functional within just 5 minutes.
Prevent damage to your reputation
Whilst disasters do occur, the time in which it takes you to recover is what really matters. Customer trust can be broken quickly, so when disaster strikes it’s important to have an effective solution in place that guarantees low RTO, ultimately causing as little disruption as possible to your clients.
By using Acronis Cloud Infrastructure, our DRaaS solution not only guarantees lower Recovery Time Objectives, but also Automated Data Integrity checks after Restore.
