IT solutions and infrastructure service provider, Niu Solutions, has launched its latest Disaster Recovery as a Service product (DRaaS). The offering gives firms cost-optimised cloud platform delivery and incorporates orchestration and automation technologies that can minimise the recovery time, ensuring access to critical data in the event of a catastrophe.
The DRaaS market has gained significant interest from regulated industries including financial and professional services firms in recent years, as it enables any organisations of any size to retain access to their business-critical data whilst also maintaining security and meeting their compliance requirements. As a result, DRaaS solutions are expected to account for 90% of disaster recovery operations by 2020.
Niu’s DRaaS product provides a flexible solution for disaster recovery as it allows data to be recovered and relocated via the cloud quickly and easily in the event of a catastrophe. The product also allows cloud platform delivery cost optimisation, consistent compliancy checking, automation for invocation tasks and data virtualisation which better leverages back up data for a wider range of purposes
Niu’s DRaaS solution will be added to its existing cloud product range, which aims to support clients’ digital transformation by protecting their critical IT environments with a proactive response.
Adam Kobeissi, Products and Services Director at Niu Solutions comments:
“We are now seeing digital disruption across many different industries. In order to stay competitive, firms need flexibility, utilising innovative technologies that can be constantly scaled up or down to meet demand. As a result, more and more businesses are turning to cloud solutions over traditional datacentres. Cloud technology already allows businesses to react to market changes and needs very rapidly, so DRaaS is a logical next step for businesses that want to create a safe yet flexible environment for their valuable data.
“With the cyber and regulatory landscape in constant flux and upcoming regulation on the horizon, having a robust cloud and disaster recovery solution in place is key to ensuring the business is both compliant and secure. As firms get to grips with the new requirements and begin to consolidate their data and processes, it is likely that major security gaps will come to light. As a result, we expect DRaaS to be implemented globally as firms begin to proactively identify risks and mitigate them before a hack or data catastrophe occurs.”
