You know what Platform as a Service (PaaS) is. You also know what Software as a Service (SaaS) is. And we’ve defined and discussed the benefits of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). But there’s another type of cloud computing environment that we haven’t discussed.
Recovery as a Service (RaaS) is a type of cloud computing that allows mid-size companies and small enterprises to take advantage of backing up and restoring essential business data before it’s lost for good.
In today’s IT climate, you can lose your data any number of ways:
- Warehouse fire
- Hurricane, tornado, or other weather disaster
- Hacking or data theft
- Large scale blackout
- Datacenter breakin
I’m sure you can use your imagination and come up with other ways to lose your data. Any way you look at it, though, data loss can be a business killer, and the last thing you want to do on any day is figure out how you are going to recover thousands of necessary working documents that have suddenly come up lost.
Recovery as a Service allows you to keep and maintain ongoing backups and data recovery files. You’ll never be without your important data.
You can backup your data daily, weekly, or monthly, but it needs to backed up. And if you lose it, then you’ll be able to restore it quickly from your back up files. Do the smart thing. Enter a Recovery as a Service agreement with a qualified cloud hosting provider.
