MarketsandMarkets defines DRaaS as the protection and replication of company’s data on physical or virtual servers to ensure business continuity in the event of manmade or natural disasters. DRaaS combines various service capabilities, such as cloud-to-cloud recovery, flexible deployment, cloud replication, and mobile backup.
