Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Replication and hosting of your applications and data to provide failover in the event of a catastrophe.

Talk to an expert

So, what do we mean by DRaaS?

DRaaS is a cloud-based solution that allows organisations to recover their IT systems and data after a disruptive event such as a natural disaster, cyberattack, hardware failure, or human error.

DRaaS involves outsourcing the entire disaster recovery process to a third-party service provider, who manages the necessary infrastructure, tools and procedures to ensure that critical systems and data can be quickly restored in the event of a disaster.

Benefits of DRaaS


Rapid recovery

Nviron offers predefined Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs), which specify how quickly systems and data can be restored after a disaster.


Certified & tested

At a minimum, once each year, Nviron will test that your disaster recovery system can be accurately deployed and provide you with a certificate.


Reduced downtime

DRaaS from Nviron can minimise downtime and data loss, which in turn helps your organisation maintain business continuity and minimise financial losses.


Reduced cost

Procuring, building and maintaining an in-house disaster recovery system is costly and time-consuming. With DRaaS, Nviron can deliver an effective disaster recovery solution for a simple monthly fee.

Frequently asked questions

DRaaS is a cloud-based solution which enables you to back up your data, systems and application software to Nviron's shared infrastructure whilst providing the necessary servers and storage resources required to spin up your services and application, enabling you to continue operating in the event of a disaster.

With DRaaS, your organisation's systems and data are replicated in Nviron's shared infrastructure. If a disaster strikes, Nviron facilitates the failover of your primary systems to the recovery service, and you can continue operating normally.

Businesses have no tolerance for downtime, and fast recovery is essential to avoid costly downtime. By outsourcing your disaster recovery to Nviron, you can avoid complex and time-consuming DR orchestration.

DRaaS presents a compelling alternative to traditional disaster recovery solutions. Some of the key benefits of choosing DRaaS over DR include:


  • Cost efficiency – DRaaS operates on a subscription model, making it more accessible and affordable than traditional DR solutions, requiring substantial initial investments in hardware, software and infrastructure.


  • Managed by a third party – Nviron takes ownership of the setup, testing and maintenance of your DRaaS environment – freeing up your time to focus on critical tasks.


  • Scalable – As your needs grow, you can easily scale your DRaaS solution to keep up with your requirements, and you only pay for the resources you use.


  • Faster recovery – DRaaS offers much quicker recovery times over traditional DR. This can significantly reduce downtime and minimise the impact of a disaster on your business operations.


  • Enhanced security – With Nviron's DRaaS, you benefit from our enhanced security and ISO: 27001 compliant procedures and practices, ensuring maximum protection for your infrastructure and customer data.

BaaS and DRaaS are two different methods for backing up and recovering your data in the event of a disaster. Whilst BaaS only offers data recovery, DRaaS offers instantaneous recovery of data, applications, file systems and configurations through real-time replication, failover and failback capabilities, making it a much more complete solution.


BaaS is designed for situations where you will only need to recover data, not the IT infrastructure, in the event of a disaster. In contrast, DRaaS is much more complex, providing complete disaster recovery solutions designed for businesses that require full DR capabilities without the substantial upfront investment in IT infrastructure.
