Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) Guide
What potential IT disasters keep you up at night?
There are many kinds of disaster that can shut down your information technology (IT) operations: natural disasters, like a hurricane, power outages, a hardware crash that corrupts data, employees who accidentally or deliberately delete or modify data, malware that tampers with, erases, or encrypts data so you can’t access it, and network outages due to problems at your telecom provider.
Disasters happen, sometimes bringing down a single application, sometimes bringing down your entire data center. No matter how careful you are or how good your IT team is, eventually some event will shut down your applications when you really need them up and running. The Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council survey in 2014 found that 36 percent of businesses lost at least one critical application, virtual machine, or data file for a period of several hours, with 25 percent saying they’d lost a large part of their data center for a period of hours or days.
