The Best Gets Even Better: Zerto and DRaaS Updates


Why DRaaS?

Implementing a disaster recovery (DR) solution can be a complex task for an organization that is new to the process. Obtaining the expertise, finding a suitable DR site, choosing the right DR solution, formulating an effective DR strategy, and testing DR plans can be overwhelming and lead organizations to implement less-than-ideal DR plans and solutions.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) can provide all of the above to meet the needs of organizations large or small with a predictable pay-as-you-go service model. But not all DRaaS offerings are created equal. DRaaS is a combination of both the experts delivering the service and the underlying technology solution powering the service.
