Benefits of DRaaSi


Driving down costs

DRaaSi is hosted and managed on IBM Power Systems within secure data centers, removing the need to own expensive systems or retain highly paid technical staff. The solution is billed annually or quarterly and costs are fixed for three or five years depending on the agreement term selected, fulfilling High Availability and recovery requirements without tying up valuable capital.

Eliminate expensive downtime

DRaaSi eliminates expensive downtime by providing 24-hour, year-round availability while sharing costs and reducing prices for all users. By producing processing power on demand, the DRaaSi solution removes a risk inherent in traditional data recovery contracts.

Backed by appropriate skills

As well as providing access to the latest technologies, DRaaSi is managed by the expert technical skills necessary to protect your organizations against data loss. APSU Inc. takes responsibility for all regular testing and will perform or assist in any live rollover situations. You have access to a 24-hour, 365-day service desk facility, and monthly reports cover problem analysis as well as information on testing and any incidents that have occurred.

Integrated online backup and storage

The DRaaSi solution can seamlessly integrate online backup, disk based storage, retrieval and recovery – eliminating the need for off-site tape storage and ensuring information is easily available where and when required.

Complete work area recovery

If disaster strikes, organizations need comprehensive recovery facilities to keep business processes functioning. Your DRaaSi solution can include more than just your IBM i servers.
