DRaaS Providers, ComportSecure, Helps you Understand the Difference Between DRaaS and Disaster Recovery

RAMSEY, N.J., Dec. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to help their clients understand the intricacies of data management, DRaaS providers, ComportSecure, help you understand the difference between DRaaS and Disaster Recovery.

For any business dealing with a significant amount of data, it's critical that they have a plan in place to restore information in the event of an emergency. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has some key differences that set it apart from more traditional disaster management that may better suit businesses in specific situations.

Discussed below are the main differences between DRaaS and traditional disaster recovery.

Control. DRaaS is a valuable option for companies who are looking to reduce their financial investment in data management and who would like to have access to storage and computing that can grow to suit the needs of their company. However, DRaaS does require bringing in a third-party to assist with data management. Companies that require complete and exclusive control over their data may not be the best fit for DRaaS.

Physical Access to Infrastructure. DRaaS providers give companies an affordable and convenient way to manage their data, but they do make it less convenient for company employees to regularly visit on-site storage or build out a replicated environment in geographically diverse locales. Companies who prioritize keeping their data immediately on-hand in physical storge rather than on the cloud may be better suited to more traditional disaster recovery.

Lower Maintenance Protection. One of the biggest benefits of DRaaS is being able to offload a lot of the responsibility to a third party dedicated to keeping data secure. For an affordable price, companies can offload their data management to a cloud service that is equipped to protect information from cyber security issues that may leave on-site storage vulnerable. Moving that data into the cloud can also protect files from natural disasters like fires or floods - leaving critical data easily accessible even if the company's physical location is compromised.

Dynamic Storage and Computing Power. Perhaps the most unique aspect that DRaaS cloud services provide is the ability to dynamically scale storage and computing power to meet the needs of the business. Companies that value flexibility and the ability to expand or shrink the format of their servers and cloud computing will likely get great use out of DRaaS.

Hassle-Free Server Management. DRaaS is an excellent option for companies who don't want to deal with dedicating resources to maintaining a server and their own physical backups. Third parties that specialize in cloud services can handle all aspects of a company's server and resource utilization to ensure critical information is both protected as well as easy to access when needed.
