White Paper: Sky Data Vault
The Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) market gets a lot of buzz, but end users tell us it’s hard to do. Many of the products in the market today offer a DRaaS solution in addition to, or separate from, an overall data protection strategy, often pulling the focus of IT away from their current datacenter investments and momentum.
Careful and strategic development of a successful DRaaS partnership is going to play an integral role in defining the success of businesses moving forward. This whitepaper discusses:
What does it take to develop and maintain a successful partnership with your DR provider?
What you’ll receive out of a successful DRaaS partnership?
Organizations that outsource disaster recovery say that the costs are the same as or lower than in-house solutions
The genesis of Sky Data Vault (SDV) traces back to 2013, when the founders, seasoned in managed services, IT support, and telecom marketplaces, recognized the surging adoption of cloud services and demand for affordable, cloud-enabled DR solutions. “We all think of fire, flood, and long term power outage when we hear DRaaS. The reality is human error, hardware failure, and malware are far more common than environmental issues. We felt if we simplified the service for the customer, eliminated upfront hardware costs, and went to market with a monthly service fee, DRaaS would be more accessible for organizations to mitigate risk in all areas of their business,” begins Michael Thompson, Founder, Sky Data Vault. Sky Data Vault’s state-of-the-art Disaster Recovery solutions portfolio includes Direct to Cloud (D2C) Back Up, Hybrid DRaaS, and Direct to Cloud (D2C) DRaaS to give organizations options based on their business objectives. D2C Back Up offers protection and recovery services for important files and folders by encrypting the backups and storing them in the secure SDV Cloud.
