Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) from the Cloud

Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) is a cloud computing and backup service model that uses cloud resources to protect applications and data from disruption caused by unforeseen events. It gives an organization a total system backup that allows for business continuity in the event of system failure.

XL Cloud Host and Microsoft Azure provide DRaaS solutions enabling the full replication and backup of all cloud data and applications. Azure Site Recovery orchestrates and manages disaster recovery for XL Cloud Host and Azure VMs together with on-premises VMs and physical servers in conjunction with our Backup as a Service (BaaS) solutions.

Orchestrated Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS)

Use Site Recovery to automate the recovery of services when a site outage happens at the primary data centre. Applications can be brought up in an orchestrated fashion to help restore service quickly, even for complex multi-tier workloads. Easily create disaster recovery plans in the Microsoft Azure classic portal, where they are stored. The disaster recovery plans can be as simple or advanced as your business requirements demand, including the execution of customised Windows PowerShell scripts and Azure Automation runbooks, and pauses for manual interventions. Customise networks by mapping virtual networks between the primary and recovery sites, and test disaster recovery plans whenever you want without disrupting the services at your primary location.

Replication and disaster recovery to Azure

Replicate your workloads to Azure and enable new capabilities. Applications can be migrated to Azure with just a few clicks, or burst to Azure temporarily when you encounter a surge in demand. Run reports and analytics on copies of production workloads in Azure without affecting customers. DevTest new versions of applications with copies of live data, then seamlessly put the new version into production in your data centre.

Continuous health monitoring with Site Recovery

Site Recovery monitors the state of your protected instances continuously and remotely from Azure. When replicating between two sites that you control, your virtual machines’ data and replication stays on your networks. All communication with Azure is encrypted. When replicating to Azure as the secondary site, your data is encrypted, and you can also select encryption for data at rest.

Azure Site Recovery is billed in units of the average daily number of instances you are protecting over a monthly period.
