IDC PlanScape: Getting Started with Disaster Recovery as a Service

By: Phil GoodwinResearch Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group

Abstract

This IDC study provides a business plan for leveraging disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).IDC estimates that, as many as half of all organizations could not survive a disaster event because of inadequate DR planning and implementation. Disaster recovery as a service has fundamentally transformed DR planning by significantly reducing the cost of a DR solution and simplifying its implementation. Organizations that do not have a complete DR plan should consider DRaaS solutions to ensure organizational survival under the worst of circumstances.

"Organizations without a complete DR plan are accepting existential risk to the organization," said Phil Goodwin, research director, IDC's Storage Systems and Software. "Disaster recovery as a service can help these organizations address that risk. DRaaS fundamentally changes the economics and challenge of disaster recovery, making it both much more affordable and simpler than traditional DR plans."
