Disaster Recovery as a Service
Disaster Recovery as a Service used to entail a doubling of your IT infrastructure spend. With very little sophistication in DR services, most providers would simply replicate the environment in its entirety and double the overall price of the service. Luckily, things have gotten better.

Here are some advantages to using Disaster Recovery as a Service
It’s not difficult for an Infrastructure as a Service provider to license and add pooled hardware for a subset of clients. They typically have massive economies of scale and are able offer a comprehensive DR strategy for little cost.
Replicate and Halt
Cloud fees are charged by the hour. If you replicate an VM and leave it running, your monthly bill will reflect 730 hours of usage. With DRaaS providers, they are able to replicate data and halt the instance which means computing resources are used far less. Clients are only billed 730 hours if the site fully fails over to the DR site for a long period of time.
Portability in Networks
Many DRaaS providers can shift inbound traffic to the DR site with little interruption. This historically required very advanced and expensive global load balancing hardware. DR instances can be quickly turned on, and network traffic can flow to it within minutes of the primary site going down at a fraction of the cost of running 2 hot sites.
Some DRaaS firms can implement a complete DR solution in a short period of time thanks to modern software and virtual machines. Not only does this help with uptime, it can be another method to combat ransomware and cyber attacks. Many DRaaS providers can offer remote backups which offer a small level of DR at a very competitive rate.
