Disaster Recovery As A Service & COLO

Disaster recovery as a service

(DRaaS) is a service model that allows organizations to back up their data and IT infrastructure in a third party cloud computing environment. The institute provides all the DR orchestration to regain access and functionality to IT infrastructure after a disaster. The “as-a-service” model means that the organization itself doesn’t have to own all the resources or handle all the management for disaster recovery, instead relying on the service provider. Disaster recovery planning is critical to business continuity and Disruptive Innovations is here to help. The following incidents have the potential to wreak havoc on your business:

Natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires and earthquakes


Equipment failures and power outages



Preparing for the worst

True DRaaS mirrors your complete infrastructure on virtual servers – including compete, storage and all networking functions. Your business can continue to run all applications normally – they simply run from the service provider’s cloud environment as opposed to the disaster-affected servers. DRaaS enables seamless or near seamless recovery time. Once the physical servers are repaired, processing and data are migrated back. While latency may be higher while running all your applications completely in the cloud, the cost of downtime typically outweighs the performance concerns.

DRaaS Service Advantages

Many of the mid-market businesses Disruptive Innovations serve have lean IT teams and simply can’t afford to take the time needed to research, implement and fully test disaster recovery plans. DRaaS takes the burden of disaster planning off of the desk of your IT team and puts it into the hands of our experts. It can also be much more building out your own off-site infrastructure (as well as having the staff on standby to execute). If a disaster doesn’t happen, that expensive second stack of infrastructure and staff aren’t ever used, while many DRaaS providers charge based on usage.
BaaS is also available for organizations that simply want there data backed up and do not require any processing power. It is typically less expensive and is a good fit for any companies that just need to archive data or records for legal reason – although most companies will combine BaaS solutions with some other type of disaster recovery strategy to access their records.

Digital Realty

Historically businesses have owned all aspects of their IT – equipment, the real estate where that equipment is housed, managing the connectivity, power, and cooling. As business grow, power and connectivity issues start becoming a problem. Colocation resolves these limitations by allowing businesses to place their existing hardware in purpose-built data center facilities, ensuring reliability with redundant power, cooling. Enterprise class service providers offer various compliances (SSAE 16, PCI, HIPAA, NIST) and more than 99.9% SLA’s for uptime. Disruptive Innovations has access to the world’s leading colocation facilities across the world, knowledge of the best business SLA’s available and the more competitive rates in the industry.
