10 Minutes to DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service)

Datrium is delivering 10 minutes to DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service with VMware Cloud on AWS) to help organizations prepare in case disaster strikes. 

Traditionally DR has been expensive, complicated, and unreliable. But Datrium has changed all that. We’ve transformed DR with cloud backup into an easy-to-use SaaS product. 

10 Minutes to DRaaS – Follow These Four Easy Steps:
  1. Download a lightweight virtual machine (VM)
  2. Create global backup and data retention policies
  3. Store backups on low-cost S3
  4. Pay on-demand for DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS if disaster strikes
Rising Threat of Ransomware and Regulations Are Raising the Stakes

The rising threat of ransomware and regulations, such as GDPR, are driving many organizations to get reliable DR plans in place quickly. Every day there are reports of new attacks, and it costs companies millions. Many organizations don’t report attacks unless they’re mandated to disclose them because they don’t want to damage their brand and reputation. More and more companies are undergoing risk assessments to gauge their level of exposure. 

For organizations with smaller IT teams and budgets, reliable DR has been out of reach. They couldn’t afford the high cost of a secondary DR site or always-on DR resources in the cloud. We have customers who use Datrium DRaaS and have saved almost 70% over traditional DR approaches, such as having a secondary physical site. Plus, they’ve reduced RTO by 90%. 

DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS offers an on-demand model that enables you to reduce the risk of ransomware attacks and other disasters. DRaaS is cost-efficient, easy-to-use, and reliable, so you get:

  • On-demand cloud DR with built-in backup – you only pay when disaster strikes
  • Instant RTO – eliminates VM format conversions and lengthy rehydration
  • Ransomware recovery – with tamper proof backups 
  • Continuous automated compliance checks – to validate the configuration, confirm there hasn’t been any drift, and ensure DR plans work when you need them 
  • Plug-n-Play: DRaaS works seamlessly with any VMware-centric primary storage
