Alternative to Business Recovery Plan, Disaster Recovery Plan as a service is a growing solution, it attracts because of it's recovery speed, it's simple implementation and the decrease of associated costs.
On premise spaces contain the original IT infrastructure divided into two separate parts :
These 2 spaces are used in case of Disaster Recovery, or during DRAaS testing. They are dedicated to the DRaaS technical implementation. They are empty when the client’s system is operational, in nominal mode. In case of Disaster Recovery, they are filled according to needs.
The protected space include all the mission criticals IT elements (servers, network, specialized equipment). This physical space is located in a computer room. The goal to DRaaS is to counter a disaster that would impact this room.
The unprotected space contains IT elements that aren’t mission critical. Its scope can be geographically larger: one or several building, in diverse sites.
The rescue space is a virtual space in the Cloud. Clients have to plug into it to access their DRaaS. It's used for disaster recovery or during DRP testing. Image system and data recorded are restored in this virtual space.
The Fallback space is the physical space where business activity is restored. Once DRP is activated, the fallback space will be interconnected to the rescue space and the client will be able to access the recovered machines.
For each client, these 4 spaces are created and each set of spaces is isolated from the other, due to Cloud architecture.
A backup plan is built upstream, in nominal mode. Nominal mode is when the entire infrastructure of the client computer system is connected and functional. It sends data to the cloud for backup.
Back up data by replicating it in the cloud. Application data, systems and servers are saved.
Unlike the traditional PRA, Virtual machines are not billed outside recovery tests and the Disaster Recovery launch.Read more about costs decrease with DRaas
