Disaster Recovery

Increasing cloud adoption across industries is offering a due boost to the Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). The ‘Cloud Managed Services’ offer you a comprehensive cloud management support by handing over the complete responsibility of your cloud operations to Cloud Managed Service Providers (MSPs).

At its core, cloud managed services involves outsourcing the management of an organization's cloud infrastructure to a third-party provider. This allows businesses to focus on their core competencies while leaving the management of their IT infrastructure to experts.

What is cloud disaster recovery?

Cloud disaster recovery (CDR) is a cloud-based solution or managed service that helps you quickly recover your organization’s critical systems after a disaster and provides you remote access to your systems in a secure virtual environment.

When it comes to traditional DR, managing a secondary data center can be time consuming and costly. Cloud disaster recovery has changed everything when it comes to traditional DR by eliminating the need for traditional infrastructure and significantly reducing downtime. IT departments can now harness the power of the cloud for immediate spin-up and fail over. This creates faster recovery times at a fraction of the cost.

How does cloud disaster recovery work?

Cloud disaster recovery takes a very different approach than traditional DR. Instead of dedicated servers staged with the OS and application software and patching to the last configuration used in production, cloud disaster recovery captures the entire server Image in storage, which includes the operating system, applications, patches, and data into a single software bundle or virtual server image, waiting to be deployed in the event of a disaster. The virtual server Image in the Cloud can be delta synced with the origin server during steady state and most importantly restored, or spun up, on a virtual machine in minutes.

Backup and Disaster Recovery in Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computing services over the internet which operates on a pay-as-you-go basis. Cloud computing vendors generally provide access to the following services:

  • Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) allows you to rent IT infrastructure, including servers, storages and network component, from the cloud vendor.
  • Platform as a service (PaaS) allows you to rent a computing platform from the cloud provider for developing, testing, and configuring software applications.
  • Software as a service (SaaS) allows you to access software applications which are hosted on the cloud.

Benefits of Cloud Based Disaster Recovery Services

  • Drastic reduction of your capital expenses.
  • Reduced operational expenses as you only pay for what you use.
  • Disaster Recovery on Cloud is fairly easy to set up and maintain as compared to physical infrastructure.
  • With our managed services, we automate laborious tasks such monitoring the replication with regular DR drills and mock tests.
