PROTECTING IT SERVICES
Our Cloud DR service gives an organisation total peace of mind in the event of a disaster, enabling rapid recovery of physical and virtual machines; plus, essential business continuity testing on-demand.
Cloud DR leverages continuous replication to minimise data loss, reduce impact on performance of primary systems and networks whilst reducing time to failover. Supporting both Windows and Linux physical servers, as well as popular virtualisation platforms, Cloud DR provides comprehensive disaster recovery for your estate with the ability to invoke DR on servers quickly and remotely access the server resource from the cloud platform.
Cloud DR utilises replication technology to capture changes at the byte level and replicate them between any source and target environment. This allows the customer’s source servers located either on-premise or within another 3rd party location, to be replicated from its source to the target location in the Cloud Platform.
This continuous replication of data means that the target DR server is always receiving the latest changes being applied to the source server from the customer.

Advantages of draas
Businesses today have no tolerance for downtime, so DRaaS provides a critical bridge, allowing businesses to operate remotely while normal processes are restored. While natural disasters are commonly associated with the need for DRaaS, five of the most common reasons an organization uses DRaaS are:
- On-premises power outages
- Hardware and network failures
- Software, IT systems errors
- On-premises data center failures (not due to power outage)
- Security-related attacks
Quick recovery is vital to avoid costly downtime – both in terms of financial and reputational damage – and ensures your business remains competitive and compliant. By outsourcing disaster recovery to a DRaaS vendor, your organization can also avoid complex, time-consuming disaster recovery orchestration so you can count on the solution to work fast.
HOW IT WORKS
Data copies. Primary data is replicated and held by a disaster recovery service provider in a different location. The best option here is a hybrid solution that integrates holding data copies in both physical and online locations. Regular data snapshots are included so that there is no data loss during failover.
A disaster-induced failover. If a disaster event occurs, access to data will be moved from the primary location to another location that is hosted by the service provider. This switch is swift and responsive, helping to preserve the kind of business continuity that is vital to ongoing operations. Avoiding downtime is the primary goal.
The process of failback. This is where the disaster event has passed and access returns to the primary site. When this happens, primary data replication begins again immediately so that there is no drop in protection should another problem arise.
