Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) is a vital practice of most risk-sensitive organizations who understand the importance of minimizing outages to the user community. Being able to recover essential services quickly after a significant disaster event is critical. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is defined as providing a remotely hosted disaster recovery service to protect a business’s data and applications. Organizations implement DRaaS solutions to improve their Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO), preferably in a cost-optimized fashion. Enquizit has led the successful implementation of smart cloud-based and cost-effective Disaster Recovery solutions with near real-time RPO and RTO by winning competitive solicitations.
Many organizations still maintain complicated and expensive on-premise Disaster Recovery (DR) data centers as their primary means of addressing DR. However, they often struggle with this approach and face many common challenges:
Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), such as AWS and Azure, offers a wide range of solutions to address the challenges organizations face using on-premise data centers. A cloud-based DR approach is ideal for organizations that are not yet ready to migrate their production workloads to the cloud. DR offers a great cloud-first use case as it allows organizations to get their “feet wet” in the cloud while gaining experience working with CSPs. More importantly, CSPs offer a very compelling Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to on-premise DR solutions when implemented correctly.
A well-architected cloud-based implementation for low RTO/RTO must include innovative ways to continuously replicate data from production data centers to the cloud for host images, files, and databases. For example, AWS with the 2019 acquisition of CloudEndure.
Enquizit’s experience implementing large scale cloud-based DR solutions for organizations, including the staging and migrations of legacy systems, has equipped our team to take an integrated and innovative approach to Disaster Recovery as a Service. Enquizit’s proprietary SKYMAP ™ cloud orchestration framework enables clients to design and build highly automated and resilient DR solutions that are scalable, agile, and cost-optimized to achieve the lowest RPO/RTO possible.
Enquizit is a qualified systems integrator with extensive DRaaS experience. We leverage the knowledge and experience acquired over the years migrating thousands of production workloads to the cloud on behalf of our clients. Enquizit’s approach and guidelines for solving the DR challenge include:
The Enquizit differentiator is our ability to deliver a comprehensive DRaaS solution that accounts for multiple replication patterns (database, file, host-based) that minimizes the customer’s steady-state runtime cost and all the while maintaining near real-time RPO and RTO targets.
