You Might Need Involta DRaaS+ If…

Three business cases for disaster recovery as a service.

Strong leaders have the uncanny ability to run day-to-day operations while keeping a close eye on the future. They’re looking out for opportunities to drive growth while protecting existing operations. Involta’s next-generation disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS+) ensures that Involta customers have the right services in place to ensure essential business systems and data remain secure in the event of a natural, human-made or technological disaster.

With all the DR options on the market, how do you know if a DRaaS solution is the right next move for your business? Here are three examples illustrating the business case for DRaaS+.

You might need DRaaS+ if you’re concerned about the weather

The earth’s climate is changing. Snowstorms and hurricanes have reached devastating levels of frequency and velocity. When hurricane-level winds plague locations like landlocked Iowa, it’s clear that natural disasters pose a very real threat to human life and businesses alike.

Having a disaster recovery plan in place is one of the best ways to protect your business from unexpected natural disasters (and cybersecurity disasters, too). In fact, an astounding 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 or more days after a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year, and 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for this same time period filed for bankruptcy immediately.

Involta DRaaS+ allows you to choose the level of service that aligns with your risk tolerance and complements your internal team’s abilities.

Check out our DRaaS+ overview for more detail on the differences between each tier.

You might need DRaaS+ if security is a top priority

The hard truth is that 94% of businesses will not survive catastrophic data loss, and 72% of businesses are poorly positioned for successful disaster recovery. If a business leader is targeting long-term success, they must take precautionary measures against criminal cyber activity. It doesn’t matter the size of the business, the industry or the location. Bad actors target any business with vulnerabilities.

Involta DRaaS+ is there when you need it. Involta houses all DRaaS+ platforms in our multi-tenant, highly available infrastructure with no ingress or egress fees, so if you’re attacked, your systems can be recovered quickly. This is essential in protecting your business’s ability to move forward.

The tiered approach allows Involta to be hands-on with engineer-guided DR testing and support throughout the year. Or, we can be hands-off, providing the DR infrastructure you need and allowing your team to run point to ensure all systems are ready to go when you need them.

You might need DRaaS+ if you’re positioning your business for growth

Not every business starts out with a highly skilled IT team. It might just be one rockstar running the show to start, with a steadily growing need for more hands and minds to make your business run smoothly.

That’s the thing about growth. The more you expand your products and services, the more technology you’ll need. More workstations. More cloud capabilities. More data storage. More security measures.

Some teams have diverse IT experience. Many teams don’t, particularly around specialized replication software. Involta can fill your DR gaps (and more) as a true partner. We’ll become a part of your team that handles X so your team can focus on the Y, Z and beyond that allows your business to grow.
