Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

What is a disaster? From a managed IT support perspective, a “disaster” can be theft or loss of data, hardware failure, cyber security intrusion, etc.

What can cause an IT disaster? Malicious third parties, intentional or unintentional acts of employees, theft, and of course, fire, flood (weather or burst pipes), tornadoes, etc.

Regardless of the cause, at DynaSis we provide cloud-based Disaster Recovery solutions, either as stand-alone services or as an integral part of our managed IT support program, and offer a variety of recovery options designed to serve your specific needs.

Disaster recovery solutions need to focus on two variables:


Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) 

This is the point in time back to which your files are recovered. Simply put, how much data can you afford to lose without your business suffering? For some companies, it may be acceptable to lose data going back a day or two; for others, it may be only a matter of minutes…or no loss at all.

Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

This is the amount of time your company can afford to be offline, or without access to its files. Again, for some companies this may be more time sensitive than for others. Can you afford to be off-line for a day or two, or do you need to be up and running again, files fully accessible, within minutes?

Your budget and comfort level. Our analysis and ultimate solutions take all this into account. We will work with you to develop a solution that makes sense and is affordable. If you have an in-house IT team, we will work with them so they are fully up-to-date on everything we propose and ready to provide immediate in-house support if needed. If DRaaS is part of an overall managed IT support program, your company executives will be part of our planning, management, and if needed, the execution team.

With a DRaaS solution from DynaSis, you can count on:

  • A high-level disaster recovery environment that is cyber-intrusion resistant.
  • Rapid recovery back to normal operation based on your pre-determined requirements
  • Fixed operating costs
  • Simplified compliance monitoring, testing and reporting
  • 24 x 7 x 365 monitoring, managing and maintaining of your network
  • Integration with your in-house IT team, or complete IT support…your choice.

This is serious stuff. The failure rate of businesses that suffer from disaster, natural or man-made, is extremely high, estimated at 55%. And since every business is different and every solution needs to be tailored to that business, working with an experienced IT support company that has successfully been through the process again and again, is critical, so give us a call and we can walk you through the process.

DRaaS vs. Data Backup and Recovery. Data backup and recovery are important parts of DRaaS, but as stand-alone services, just the fact that you have them does not insure that the process starts and continues to completion. Large companies, with their own internal IT staffs and their own redundant data centers, are often in a good position to accomplish this on their own, but the small to mid-sized company, with a small IT staff (or none), that is reliant on third party storage facilities, or on-premises primary storage, may have the assets needed for recovery, but not the skill-set. This is where DRaaS comes into play. So let’s look at the three parts of this puzzle:

  • Backup as a Service (BaaS): This applies when your managed IT Support provider backs up your data to a cloud-based storage facility. 
  • Recovery as a Service (RaaS): This is the next step, wherein your provider will rebuild your servers, then reinstall applications and data.
  • Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS): This service adds cloud-based failover into the mix for a complete recovery solution.

If you have a disaster recovery solution already in place, we will analyze and test it to make sure it fits your current requirements. If necessary, we will update your plan so it meets needs.

  • Cifial

  • Logo-Whitaker-Oil
    “Now we take a preventative approach, instead of waiting for something to break.” DynaSis constantly monitors the operation of Whitaker’s systems, performing regular maintenance, executing backups and installing upgrades and patches proactively. “I’d rank their service very high.
