Featured Whitepaper: "Disaster Recovery as a Service"

Written by IDC analyst Mark Schrutt, this edition of the Analyst Connection provides an overview of the considerations for, and value of, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). It focuses on the importance of Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions and provides insight into key business drivers, issues, trends, and considerations for companies looking to protect their business today and in the future. The paper compares traditional DR programs to the new DRaaS which provides access to storage, backup, and recovery on an as-needed, pay-for-what-you-use basis. The paper explores why traditional DR is no longer meeting the needs of today's businesses and why new cloud-based technologies are rewriting the rules of DR, providing speed to recovery, scalability, security, and reliability.
