In business things can go wrong, disasters can occur meaning business continuity is critical. Therefore, it’s essential to have a plan to get back on track should an incident happen – this is where Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) comes in.
Disaster Recovery as a Service is sub set of Business Continuity and acts as a backup service model that uses cloud resources to protect applications and data from disruption caused by a disaster. It also provides a total system back up that allows business continuity in the event of a fundamental system failure.
Our disaster recovery service will help your business with planning and managing incidents of all shapes and sizes.
What can you expect from our Disaster recovery service?

What do I do to get a disaster recovery plan in place to protect my business?
At any time, things can go wrong, disaster can occur, business continuity is therefore essential. That’s why it is important for organisations to ensure that if the worst does happen, then there is a plan in place to get things back on track. If you don’t already we strongly recommend having a fully customised DR plan or consider having an established IT partner who can collaborate with you to create, test and implement your plan.
How do we go about backing up our data off site and how quickly can it be recovered?
In the event an incident occurs, cloud-based recovery is an easily accessible, robust and cost effective way for managing your data off site. Our cloud services operates by backing up your designated system data on a remote offsite cloud server. You’ll be able to back up your data offsite with automation to ensure your files are updated daily.
As your Disaster Recovery as a Service provider we will work with you to establish recovery time objectives (RTO) and service level agreements to determine how long it will take your organisation to recover your systems. With almost 40 years’ experience in the market, we can ensure that we will get your systems back online in no time.
What's the difference between Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity?
Disaster recovery should be viewed as part of your overall Business Continuity plan, with the aim being to restore your IT environment as quickly and efficiently as possible following any incident.
Business Continuity is a wider plan focusing on the key areas that keep a business operational; communications, employees and IT - and it's with IT that your disaster recovery kicks in.
