Cloud-Based DRaaS

Project Details




In this webinar Dr. Geoff Hayward, CEO of DataGardens and Jim Palmeri, CEO of Agitare Technologies, Inc. talk about the best practices and factors companies should consider when moving to cloud-based Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service. Dr. Hayward will also provide a live demonstration of DataGardens DRaaS solution.
A revolution is happening in the disaster recovery industry. Companies are adopting cloud-based Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service at an astonishing rate. For instance, Gartner predicts that by the end of this year more than 30% of midsize companies will have made the switch. Most industry analysts estimate the current market at $6B with annual growth in excess of 55%.
Two factors are at stake. First, companies desperately need low recovery times but cannot afford the high cost of a dedicated recovery data center. By leveraging the cloud, they can amortize their capital and operating costs across a large subscriber base and, so, achieve a much more inexpensive solution. Second, disaster recovery is intrinsically challenging. After all, it’s about spinning up a replica data center in a remote site at a moment’s notice. Most companies don’t have the in-house expertise to provision and manage an in-house solution and many who attempt to do so find that their solutions don’t work when they are really needed. Relying on the expertise of a third-party cloud provider is very attractive to many companies.
