Disaster Recovery as a Service

High-Speed Disaster Recovery Requires DRaaS

Human error and natural disasters can both cause your systems to come crashing down. Minimizing the recovery time and amount of data lost is vital to resuming normal operations and reducing the impact on the business.

Disaster Recovery as a Service provides a highly automated, cloud-based recovery solution. Using cloud eliminates the need to provision a backup site with expensive equipment that usually sits idle. Costs are reduced and the challenge of keeping the backup site sync’d with production is reduced. In addition, DRaaS is highly automated, eliminating the risk of your team making errors as they work through an unfamiliar recovery process during a high-pressure crisis.

VAST provides and supports a DRaaS service built on cloud from the leading vendors. Our experienced DRaaS specialists help you develop and support a disaster recovery process that minimizes your downtime and allows you to resume operations with minimal disruption to both the business and the technology team.
