Find Your DRaaS Partner and Make Disaster Recovery a Strategic Part of Your Service Portfolio
You may already be managing backup services for some of your clients, but haven’t yet expanded to offering a complete disaster recovery service. Or you simply haven’t added Managed Backup or Disaster Recovery (DR) to your service portfolio at all. Either way, there are good reasons to consider offering your customers DR, not just as a source of recurring revenue, but also as a sticky service that can create a more trusted advisor relationship that leads to new business. It has become easier to add DR to your portfolio with the advent of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), especially when working closely with a DRaaS partner.
DRaaS is a perfect example of an on-demand cloud service that is always on and scales with your client’s needs. For you and your customers, there is the added benefit that you don’t need to keep a second data center for redundant servers and communications services. An additional perk for you is that DR brings in new customers, such as SMBs, who will find it easier to start small and scale as they grow.
DRaaS offers three other main benefits to your customers:
- Immediate recovery from any kind of disaster with system failover to a secondary infrastructure within minutes.
- Depending on needs and resources, customers get the flexibility to customize the scope of recovery from all types of disasters, from malware
