DRaaS additional service

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) allows you to protect your Aruba Virtual Private Cloud infrastructure using a simple and secure, professional DR service. Using one of Aruba’s DRaaS additional services, the customer can create their own disaster recovery guidelines and policies. It takes just minutes to create self-contained replicas across multiple sites and to implement a fully functioning DR procedure. Two critical measurement parameters are central in defining a disaster recovery solution: RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective).
  • RPO - represents the maximum misalignment that you are willing to tolerate between the production (primary site) and replication environments (secondary site). For all intents and purposes, this describes the amount of data left out of sync in the event of a disaster.
  • RTO - represents the time needed to restore the operation of services on the secondary site following a disaster. This describes the time needed to complete the Disaster Recovery process on an operational level to get your services back up and running.
The replication mechanism optimizes, deduplicates and compresses the data to be protected, guaranteeing the minimum impact on the bandwidth needed and so minimizing the attainable RPO.
The low RTO is guaranteed by the fact that the solutions offered are extremely easy to use, letting you start the fully automated recovery procedure (failover).

Customers can independently perform a DR test at any time. To all intents and purposes, the test performs a disaster recovery attempt, activating servers on the secondary site, without impacting production servers (primary site) in any way, allowing the customer to verify that the replicas and disaster recover procedures are working properly.
