Definition of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS)
DRaaS stands for Disaster Recovery as a Service which is a cloud-based service provided by third-party vendors such as IBM, Seagate, and Microsoft. It involves taking proactive measures for safeguarding data by having a backup operational mode that replicates or hosts physical or virtual servers.
Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service is a neonatal infant in the world of ‘as-a-service models'. It is the process of replicating and hosting of physical and virtual servers present in a distant location or an alternative appliance or a cloud. When there is an occurrence of any man-made or natural disaster, the data from these replicated systems can be accessed instantly.
The preparation of a disaster recovery plan involves the development of comprehensive strategies that encircle company's hardware, software, and networking equipment. These strategies should ensure rapid recovery as companies minimizing downtime is crucial for business today. Using DRaaS helps organizations reduce costs as there is no requirement for an off-site or on-site disaster recovery infrastructure.

It gives a total system backup of an organization's data that allows business continuity, in case of any system failure. DRaaS is also called as Business Continuity as a Service (BCaaS) as it ensures business continuity by minimizing downtime and disruption to customers, clients, and employees in the event of server failure or disaster.
