Forrester Weighs in on the State of DRaaS
This week, Forrester Research, Inc. published The Forrester Wave™: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service, Q1 2014. After a thorough review of the industry, nScaled was among a select handful of providers ranked as a Leader. Forrester’s Rachel Dines took a savvy and deep dive into the space. nScaled received the highest score possible in:
- Security: Data centers, Segregated IP spaces, dedicated VLANs, encryption
- Change Management: Changes are fully automated and continuously monitored
- Growth: 81% from 2011-2012, 96% client retention rate
- Partnerships: Many tight partnerships with enterprise vendors for critical features
Additionally in the report, Dines notes of nScaled that “the standard service entitles customers to a full DR test every eight weeks, a frequency that is virtually unheard of in the traditional DR service provider industry.”
We believe any given DR (disaster recovery) solution is incomplete if it can’t be tested comprehensively, regularly and frequently. That includes daily spot testing.
From our inception we’ve focused on offering a platform built for high performance recovery, pay-as-you-go procurement and high levels of workflow automation. With a focus on recoverability first and foremost, our clients find that the nScaled DRaaS solution is one that “just works”. At the end of the day disasters are happening every day, and making sure your core business data and applications can keep running while absorbing the impact of a downed server or whole data center is the sole focus for nScaled.
In addition to where we have been, we have a number of exciting developments coming this year in our ongoing commitment to provide an industry leading cost-effective DRaaS solution. nScaled will continue to be a DRaaS industry leader by ensuring that with the nScaled DRaaS solution your IT infrastructure is one less thing to worry about, not something that keeps you up at night.
Cloud architecture is the most disruptive change to hit IT in decades and provides a great way for companies needing business continuity to get more technology and higher-level service for less money than traditional or DIY approaches. nScaled is proud to be recognized as a Leader in the movement to DRaaS.
