The problem with DRaaS today

The Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) market gets a lot of buzz, but end users tell us it’s hard to do. Many of the products in the market today offer a DRaaS solution in addition to, or separate from, an overall data protection strategy, often pulling the focus of IT away from their current datacenter investments and momentum. These solutions add an additional layer of management complexity, and often leave businesses uncertain that they can actually recover if something goes terribly wrong.

Learn more about the DRaaS market

Point solutions in the space today leave the DRaaS environment largely undefined. A leading analyst reports that customer perception is simply “good enough” and that when utilizing disaster recovery services, IT departments continue to struggle to maximize cost efficiency.

  • Some solutions in the DR space today use backups (instead of replicas) yet claim it to be DRaaS. This causes recovery inefficiencies and what should be unacceptable recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) for true disaster recovery
  • Other DRaaS solutions offer replication, but require users and service providers to mix different vendors to complete the full picture (i.e. critical components like backup and networking). Even without this comprehensive functionality, they charge a high price point which is only worthwhile for a few, key business applications
  • Some DRaaS vendors compete directly with service providers, promoting their own cloud data centers alongside the service providers, while simultaneously trying to get those same service providers to buy their DRaaS software.

Veeam enables DRaaS

Veeam defines DRaaS, by offering it as part of a comprehensive availability strategy, providing a consistent user experience and reducing overall cost to protect your data (backup + replication + cloud). Veeam delivers:

  • Affordable and efficient, imaged-based replication for true DR — RTPO
  • Simple, straightforward licensing and pricing — Included for end customers and monthly rental by the VM for service providers
  • DR for any workload — Efficient, cost-effective and storage, application and OS-agnostic
  • Advanced networking capabilities — Veeam handles the networking for you without any complex setup or VPN — one of the biggest challenges of DR testing and failover
Learn more about advanced DRaaS networking capabilities

Networking can be one of the biggest pain points when offering a DR service. Unlike other solutions, Veeam Cloud Connect will not only manage data replication for disaster recovery, but this comprehensive DRaaS solution will also manage the network connections between the two sites, regardless of their physical location. This eliminates networking complexity, and the high cost and headaches associated with reconfiguring networks for DR testing or full or partial failover, by preserving the communication between running replica VMs. This is all possible without the need to license, learn and maintain any third-party software — and you don’t have to make any changes to replicate TCP/IP settings before, during or after failover.

Affordable and efficient cloud-based disaster recovery

Veeam Cloud Connect makes it easy, simple and transparent for service providers to offer DRaaS, and Veeam customers to take advantage of it. This way IT departments can truly leverage the benefits of hybrid cloud architecture without sacrificing that critical direct line of communication and personal relationship with the DRaaS provider. IT departments then have the ability to shift this responsibility to a service provider they know and trust, while retaining the ability to configure and consume the service the way they want.

Veeam Cloud Connect — with advanced, image-based VM replication — provides fully integrated, fast and secure cloud-based DR through a service provider.

You don’t need to acquire, learn or maintain additional technology (for multi-tenancy, orchestration, network extension, WAN acceleration, etc.) because Veeam provides everything out of the box. This dramatically reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) which means, more margin for you and competitive pricing to your customers!
  • Easy licensing — Monthly rental by the VM with no VM minimum
  • An established and growing market and channel at the ready — Including 216,500 Veeam customers and 43,000 partners
  • Zero competition from Veeam — We don’t offer our own cloud or our own DRaaS — instead, we enable our partners to do so!
