But selecting the right type of cloud for your business can be a balancing act. From public to private, or even hybrid cloud, we help clients navigate use cases to make the right choice.
DRaaS is the full replication of your system (including your data, applications, servers and settings) to a third party data centre, which you can ‘failover’ to in the event that your system is no longer available.
Whilst your primary system undergoes repair or rebuild, your system will run on Huon IT’s fully managed infrastructure and is accessible to your staff via VPN or other agreed connection.
There are varying levels of DR as a Service, depending on your budget, levels of acceptable risk, and recovery requirements.
I BACKUP MY SYSTEM ALREADY. DO I NEED DR AS WELL AS DATA BACKUP?
Yes, the key difference is that DRaaS offers system resources (compute power, storage and software) that you’ll require to actually run your system on. Data backup is certainly important, but if your IT equipment is unavailable or destroyed, what will you restore your backup to?
Huon IT offers a “pay on demand” service model, allowing businesses of any size or budget to access world class data facilities via the internet.
