BaaS is different from traditional backup because it is managed by an experienced service provider that removes the daily burden of backup management from your IT staff and provides well-architected solutions that consider industry best practices.

Consult with a DRaaS provider like InterVision to learn more about how DRaaS can play a role in ransomware mitigation. Taking a holistic approach to cybersecurity is the best starting point toward a better IT stance and a DRaaS plan empowers your IT team with a strong plan to recover in the aftermath of an event.

With the list of possible disruptive events that can take a business offline growing in number year over year, it’s no surprise so many organizations’ leaders are now asking IT departments to strengthen their stance against these threats. But what role can DRaaS and the cloud play in ensuring this greater resiliency?

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.

In this episode Dustin Milberg, Field CTO of Cloud Services, dissects the tools needed for the cloud journey, with a focus on the 6 layers of the platform. 

Offloading management to a third party to address cloud skills gaps may only be a temporary need, to let staff learn a new cloud environment before taking it on in a full capacity.
