Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service 2018  Global Buyer’s Guide: Cloud-Based Solutions for Effective Data Availability

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service 2018  Global Buyer’s Guide: Cloud-Based Solutions for Effective Data Availability

Over the past two years, the always-on nature of today’s business markets, and the lack of tolerance for application downtime, has made cloud even more important for businesses seeking to increase their business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities. As the enterprise become less able to accept the negative impacts on productivity that downtime of applications has on the business, services like DRaaS are becoming increasingly important. As cloud-based disaster recovery grows in importance to enterprises, new vendors are entering the market, and existing providers are expanding their capabilities and offerings.

The 2018 DRaaS Buyer’s Guide offers an expanded view of the DRaaS market as compared to the 2016 DRaaS Buyer’s Guide, including the addition of players in the U.S. market who are newly covered in our report, as well as representation of selected European, Latin American, and Middle Eastern vendors. As the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in effect, the availability of global vendors that can meet data protection requirements—even with regard to data created for business continuity purposes—becomes even more critical for vendors doing business with EU citizens. For this reason, Frost & Sullivan is taking a more global approach to the DRaaS Buyer’s Guide than in the past.
