For the fifth year in a row, Unitrends conducted a survey on the state of data backup, recovery, DRaaS, and the increasing use of the cloud for data protection. More than 400 respondents from organizations of all sizes and industries took part.
The results highlight that data loss and downtime continue to plague organizations of all sizes. At the same time the cloud is playing an increasing role in data protection with a majority of organizations now using the cloud as a critical part of their data protection strategy. Cloud-based technologies such
as archiving, DRaaS, and direct-to-cloud back up of PCs and servers are becoming mainstream.
This report examines in detail the findings about Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service. We will examine use
patterns, recovery rates, and user satisfaction of DRaaS technology. Most importantly, we found a direct relationship between the use of DRaaS, very fast recoveries, and reduced downtime.
But first, why are organizations adopting DRaaS?
