Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), like its cousin Backup as a Service (BaaS), provides technology to ensure business continuity, a target site and infrastructure, and the management of the process that it takes to ensure its success—all delivered to you as a service. The key for DRaaS is that the target site and infrastructure are in the cloud, rather than in a on-premises datacenter as a traditional DR solution might usually entail. The management is provided by a team of professionals who live and breathe DR and backups, which allows your IT staff to reallocate valuable time to business projects of greater daily importance.
