As-a-service and hybrid models can help organizations save significant time, money and resources on DR, while at the same time improving their overall disaster preparedness.
When the concept of disaster recovery (DR) first came about, there was really only one way to accomplish it: Build it yourself. When the corporate data center was the only place a company's critical data could live -- and the only place its most important applications could run -- keeping that data center up and running with five-nines reliability was worth any effort and almost any price. Doing it right often included building a completely separate second data center for data protection to house all the redundant copies of data, all offsite backup, and complete DR systems.
