It's no longer enough to back up your data—you need a program in place that provides full recoverability should things go wrong. Navisite's Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) provides the resources to ensure that all your critical physical and virtual IT workloads are protected. We work with you to understand the intricacies of your inf rastructure and application environment, so we can create a disaster recovery plan that's optimized for your unique business, security and compliance challenges. A PROVEN APPROACH TO DISASTER RECOVERY Interruptions at your primary data center can come f rom anything— f rom natural disasters (floods, tornados, etc.) to more common events (hardware and software failures) to cyberattacks and even simple mishaps, such as accidental folder deletion or equipment unplugging. When a disaster takes down your primary VMware environment, failing over to a remote secondary site can dramatically minimize downtime and data loss. With Navisite's DRaaS, you can support business continuity without the expense of operating remote data centers or external network-attached storage (NAS) devices by replicating your VMs to one or more of Navisite's highly scalable VMware cloud environments. Having an up-to-date secondary site available as a failover location is a critical component of a complete disaster recovery strategy. Regularly replicating VMs to a remote secondary data center is a proven approach to ensuring both a rapid recovery time objective (RTO) to reduce downtime and a short recovery point objective (RPO) to minimize data loss after an interruption. If your primary data center goes down, you initiate a failover f rom your primary site to your secondary site. Thanks to ongoing replication, a copy of your critical VMs is ready and waiting to power on in your secondary site, supporting business continuity. After you restore your primary data center, you can initiate a failback f rom your secondary site to your primary site to resume regular operations. Despite the perceived benefits of operating secondary data centers, leasing remote colocation sites or relying on external NAS devices, these solutions are often cost- prohibitive and difficult to scale as storage needs fluctuate or expand.
