4 Reasons to Rely on DRaaS in 2019

A backup and disaster recovery solution is critical to running your business

In today’s world of exponential data growth, a reliable disaster recovery and backup solution is critical to running your business. Legacy solutions (like offsite tape repositories) don’t provide the immediate access required in this high-availability era. More and more, HostedBizz customers are asking for fast access to backups and always-on data availability via a disaster recovery (DRaaS) as a service solution.

DRaaS Growth Reaches 27% CAGR

The DRaaS market is growing strongly at a compound annual growth of 27% between 2018 – 2022. That’s because businesses want a reliable backup and recovery solution without the major upfront capital costs. DRaaS requires neither investment in equipment nor budgeting for future upgrades. It does, however, improve recovery time performance by a staggering 58%!

As an added benefit, DRaaS offers a solution for companies of all sizes—especially those with limited IT personnel and capital resources. In addition to lowering costs, it reduces IT workload, improves security and compliance, and leverages the skills of an experienced service provider.
