In the last few months, a meme circulated on social platforms asking, “Who led the digital transformation of your company?” The multiple-choice answers include CEO, CTO, and COVID-19. In the meme, COVID 19 is circled as the correct response. As none of us expected a pandemic, there’s no denying that COVID affected how we work. In this blog, we discuss important trends that emerged from the pandemic, including the interest in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), and how they are affecting your Disaster Recovery (DR) strategy.
Regardless of the size of an organization, COVID-19 created aDigital Transformation across most industries. The tectonic shift in bothtechnological and cultural behavior is reshaping businesses and the world.
According to Forbes, before the pandemic, two important trends emerged in 2019.
Assurance IT could not agree more with these trends given the increased amount of interest in DRaaS solutions from clients across the country. In support of our current beliefs, the article goes on to say that enterprises will embrace cloud Disaster Recovery more than ever. This is a result of enterprises looking to curb data center costs during normal operations while being able to use the on-demand cloud resources in the event of a physical or logical disaster.
In case you didn’t think DRaaS was emerging as a “go-to solution” for enterprises we have some numbers to prove it. As companies brace for both technological and cultural change, the DRaaS market continues to see increased growth potential. Experts predict the DRaaS market to grow to $27.44 billion during 2020-2024. As a service provider, this is important because it continues to demonstrate how more companies will need to adopt a DRaaS strategy. Since teaming up with Veeam in 2015 to provide both Cloud Backup and DRaaS solutions leveraging their Veeam Cloud Connect technology, Assurance IT has noticed a tremendous appetite to include critical virtual machines into a DRaaS strategy.
