Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
Preparing your organisation for the unexpected. It isn’t just for an incident such as terrorism, fire or flood that disaster recovery should be considered. The shortening maintenance windows for critical upgrades or equipment replacements means that there is now very little time to carry out essential work on increasingly complex infrastructure systems.
Disaster Recovery as a Service - it's more than just being prepared
It's all too easy to think that this is a nice option, something that perhaps should be considered once all the existing project activity has died down. Governance and increased regulatory compliance means that these are subjects that all organisations have to address.
Data availability, application access and ensuring the integrity of systems is maintained are all things that are mandated and aren't optional. The Data Protection Act, Freedom of Information, or simply best practice demands that organisations give attention to the topic.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) from Redcentric allows organisations to build a robust disaster recovery strategy, without large capital investment in 'just in case' facilities.
Unless data is replicated to a second, suitably distant data centre, any tape recovery is a total uncertainty. It is impossible to be certain of the outcome until the recovery is complete. Redcentric however is able to offer a range of data centres that can receive a replicated copy of your data, with a frequency that enables you to meet your recovery point objectives.
Redcentric is also able to offer a virtualised platform that can be invoked as you need it, for the time you need it, and with service levels to ensure that you carry out the routine and regular testing that guarantees availability in the event that you need disaster recovery.
And as with any of our service models, you pay for what you use, as you use it and for the length of time you need the service.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
Redcentric has provided virtualised / hosted desktop infrastructure for many clients. In addition to the usual benefits of ease of management and increased security, many have seen the advantages for disaster recovery for the workforce.
Users can work from any location, using a range of devices, picking up from where they last left off without so much as a need for anyone to know or invoke anything. It's simply business as usual – and very compelling in the situation of disaster recovery.
When a user can resume work from any location with an internet connection, paying for dedicated disaster recovery locations could – for most organisations – become a thing of the past.
More Cloud services from Redcentric
In addition to Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Redcentric offers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Put simply, IaaS is data centre capacity on demand. Whether your organisation wants short term capacity for specific projects, or wants to remove the cost and burden of managing server infrastructure, IaaS allows you to turn on the tap to extra capacity fast.
