Growing business-critical data in organizations is under constant threat from many quarters. It is susceptible not only to large-scale disasters and natural catastrophes but also to more likely events such as serious infrastructure mishaps, virus attacks, data corruption, unplanned outages, network/power outages, physical damages, and critical human errors. Such outages often lead to huge financial losses, irreparable damage to reputation and goodwill, and legal hassles. In addition, businesses today must also deal with the challenges of 24/7 service delivery, which increase data compliance needs against a backdrop of unprecedented data explosion from SMACI (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud, and IoT). However, when coupled with shrinking IT budgets, this makes it difficult for organizations to put in place a comprehensive and effective disaster recovery (DR) plan. A cloud-based DR solution presents an agile, efficient, and a cost-effective solution to modern organizations for whom data is the biggest and the most valuable asset.
Why DR and Why DR on a Cloud?
According to analysts’ reports:
40% of SMBs will close their business in the next 5 years upon facing an unplanned disaster
An outage costs $282 per minute on an average for a business
Why do you need to consider DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) on Cloud?
To ensure business continuity during natural disasters and calamities
To safeguard IT assets
To reduce costs and have flexible, automated DR sites
To ensure Compliance
The ISO/IEC 27000 standard that helps organizations keep their information assets secure requires that you have a proven DR solution in place as part of your business continuity planning.
Coforge’ one-click Disaster Recovery offers a cloudbased disaster recovery solution to enable business continuity while closely aligning with the specific recovery timeframes, budget and compliance requirements. The solution is fully managed, software-defined, and hence, can be easily tailored to comply with a client’s business policies. It also ensures strict compliance with the country’s data laws, helps in cost containment and is highly secure.
With the help of a web-based graphical portal, it provides a single pane view of the complete infrastructure. It automates the recovery process with a ‘oneclick’ failover and failback in the event of a disaster/ downtime. Simplified, runbook-based, full-loop DR drills ensure seamless resumption of client’s business critical operations from the DR site within minutes of a catastrophe (as per the agreed RTO/RPO for such applications or services).
