Research by IDG Research Services shows that most organizations aren’t pouring money into legacy systems anymore. Instead, they’re investing in technology such as disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) that can help their businesses improve the customer experience, reduce CAPEX, increase operational efficiency and scalability, fulfill compliance requirements, mitigate risk and lower recovery time objectives (RTOs).
Unfortunately, many products on the market today are not true DRaaS solutions. Many of these services are glorified data hosting products, offering limited at best support services.
Why is this problematic? Imagine a scenario where your network is taken hostage by ransomware. Because one of your employees downloaded the ransomware and the DRaaS provider’s infrastructure isn’t to blame, the vendor won’t assist you in recovering your data, citing a cleverly worded service level agreement (SLA).
To make matters worse, various business agreements, regulations and regulatory bodies — including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) — often hold you responsible for vetting the vendors you work with and for ensuring data is recovered within appropriate RTOs. This means you could face costly fines and reputation-damaging sanctions if your DRaaS solution fails to deliver.
DRaaS doesn’t have to be a disaster. The key is to look for an established provider that’s familiar with compliance requirements and is able to provide guaranteed RTOs.
