Outside of your people, your data is the most critical asset to your organization. Here are the proper questions to help you uncover the foundational design of a Disaster Recovery as a Service provider’s offering. It is essential for you and your organization to understand any inefficiencies or vulnerabilities that may exist in the service. So, go ahead and ask:
1. “Is your DRaaS solution Cloud-Native, or is there an onsite component?”
It is vital to know upfront if you’re going to need to make room in your rack to accommodate a large storage array or if you need to provision a dedicated circuit just for incremental backups throughout the day. The last thing you need is your production network taking a performance hit every fifteen minutes while your incremental is synchronized.
Most providers have an onsite component to their design. This is an entirely valid setup—in some cases, a better solution for those who frequently need to perform large restores. Since the hardware is onsite and local to your other resources, the time to restore is significantly reduced over the LAN vs. WAN. On the other hand, if you’re looking to get out of the hardware game, you need to weigh your options and decide if performance is important enough to bring another piece of hardware onsite.
