Disaster Recovery Services 

Test, validate, and prove the business can respond to anything that comes its way

Disaster Recovery Services: Modernize your disaster recovery process

Recovery is critical to the business if disaster strikes, whatever form it takes.
Simply put, traditional “check-the-box” plans and testing approaches won’t cut it as the cost and complexity of continuity increases.

That's Why Protera Offers Disaster Recovery as a Service

Graphic-showing-disaster-recovery-services-framework

Protera offers disaster recovery as-a-service (DRaaS) as part of our application and cloud managed services portfolio, enabling companies to adopt consistent disaster recovery operations integrated across the entire business.

Our DRaaS solution is designed with Automated Disaster Recovery Framework that can help you
systematically test, validate, and prove that your disaster recovery plan can withstand cyberattacks and restore operations with minimal downtime or disruption.

At the same time, Protera’s integration of real-time analytics and proactive monitoring identify and
mitigate potential threats before they can impact business operations, enhancing your disaster
preparedness and response capabilities.

An Enterprise-Wide DRaaS Solution

Traditional DR tests relied heavily on industry point solutions and could only evaluate single business functions, leading to siloed assessments, fractured DR plans, and a massive drain on resources.

Protera ensures that all areas of the business can be tested systematically and regularly so that critical physical and virtual IT workloads are always kept safe and kept running—regardless of specific business, security, and/or compliance needs. Our backup and recovery services ensure that data integrity and availability are maintained.

With Protera’s DR Framework in place, you’ll never have to wonder whether your disaster recovery plan will actually work. We’ll ensure you are insurable against disaster, prepared for the urgency of real-world situations, and equipped for rapid recovery.
