MSP insights, 6/3/19
The importance of disaster recovery has been ingrained into businesses since the days of physical ledgers and bringing one set of books home while leaving another at the office. If there was a fire at your office, you still had all the critical information you needed to run your business. We’ve obviously come a long way since those analog days, but the intent is the same: keeping your business up and running in case something unforeseen happens.
Now, when we talk about disaster preparedness, the word on many people’s lips is DRaaS — disaster recovery as a service. At its most basic, DRaaS is an efficient way for companies to implement a disaster recovery plan, without the duplicate data centers, software and other tech that’s required when you do it in-house.
For MSPs in the “as-a-service” market, it’s never been more critical to be able to offer DRaaS as part of your solutions; it’s one of the first use cases for companies looking to take advantage of the cloud. However, it’s not easy to provide. Each customer has unique technology needs when it comes to disaster recovery, so finding a solution that’s repeatable is difficult. Partnering can help ease this difficulty and increase your opportunity and ability to provide DRaaS.
