Why organizations are choosing BaaS/DRaaS

In our research-powered blog series for 2022, we recently discussed why cloud-powered data protection is inevitable for most environments. In fact, it’s fair to say that while many already leverage cloud-powered data protection as either a repository, a backup service, or a DR capability (or some combination), there are others still exploring whether and how to utilize cloud-powered backup.

So far, our blog series covered the inevitability of cloud-powered data protection and more specifics on BaaS & DRaaS. Next week, we’ll conclude the series by taking a closer look at the most important aspect of BaaS/DRaaS: the Service Provider.
