Be Ready to Recover
Two factors determine effective disaster recovery – DR technologies and the team implementing them. Our Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution with failover and journaling gives you the technology. RapidScale’s deep bench of cloud experts provides the expertise. Together, they add up to maximized value from data, applications and DRaaS.
We’ve automated management of replication, backup and restore, data archiving and security to support your business with compliance.
We’ll identify and protect both cloud and on-premises production environments to keep your productivity and revenue flowing.

Improve Critical Data Protection Needs with Managed DRaaS
RTO, RPO, and the Cost of Downtime
RTO: “Recovery Time Objective”:
Duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster (or disruption) in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity.
RPO: “Recovery Point Objective”:
Maximum tolerable period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident.
Here is an easy formula to see the cost of a data loss or critical failure to a business network. If the annual revenue is approximately $1 million per year and it is a 24/7, 7 days-a-week, 52 weeks-a-year business model, dividing $1 million dollars by the 8760 hours will give you the hourly revenue loss.
If your annual revenue is around $1 million per year and the business is an 8:00AM to 5:00PM, 5 days-a-week, 52 weeks a year business model, dividing $1 million dollars by the 2080 hours will provide the hourly revenues loss (see below).
Why Disaster Recovery as a Service is Taking Off
The lingering impact of the pandemic is just one of a number of factors behind the surge of interest in DRaaS. Let’s take a closer look at other factors and how all of them impact overall DR planning.
