Recovery as a Service
|1. Recovery as a Service or RaaS is to deploy cloud computing and virtualization technologies to protect an application or data from disaster or IT disruption at one location by enabling a complete recovery in the cloud.
Notes (1):: RaaS is different from cloud-based backup services. RaaS protects data and provides standby computing capacity on demand to facilitate more rapid application recovery.
Notes (3):: RaaS capacity is delivered in a cloud deployment model so recovery resources are only paid for when they are used, making it more efficient than a traditional disaster recovery warm site or hot site where the recovery resources must be running at all times.
