DISASTER RECOVERY AS A SERVICE
Disaster Recovery as a Service, is a category of cloud computing where cloud computing is used for the purpose of protecting an application or data from a natural or human disaster or service disruption at one location by enabling a full recovery in the cloud. DRaaS differs from cloud based backup services by protecting data and providing standby computing capacity on demand to facilitate more rapid application recovery. DRaaS capacity is delivered in a cloud computing model so recovery resources are only paid for when they are used making it more efficient than a traditional disaster recovery warm site or hot site where the recovery resources must be running at all times.
The term “Disaster Recovery as a service” (DRaaS) is considered to be part of the nomenclature of cloud computing, along with infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS).
DRaaS architectural models vary depending on the location of the primary or source production application or data.
