Research and Markets: Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market Forecasts to 2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8w62gw/global_disaster) has announced the addition of the "Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

The reporthas been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts.

As a result of an increase in the adoption of the hybrid cloud, SMEs have found that applying the same to disaster recovery brings huge benefits. For years businesses have been crippled by the challenges of using tape and disk backup services. Thus, SMEs are expected to increasingly embrace hybrid cloud disaster recovery during the forecast period. Hybrid cloud disaster recovery is a combination of onsite hardware and software with cloud-based recovery. Adoption of hybrid cloud disaster recovery by businesses will eliminate the need for a secondary disaster recovery site. Moreover, it will reduce the expenses and complexities of managing and maintaining such systems.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increased need for flexibility among user organizations. Cloud-based disaster recovery services are more flexible than traditional disaster recovery services; this is mainly because with the adoption of cloud-based services, end-users are able to concentrate more on organizational core activities than on managing infrastructure and applications. Further, enterprises are able to establish a rapid deployment model that enables applications to be scaled quickly to match increased usage requirements.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the lack of proper checks on backup data. Since through cloud computing the disaster recovery infrastructure is no longer in a client's premises and outsourcing of services is commonly practiced, user organizations do not check backup operations regularly. Therefore, if regular backup of data is not done, it increases the threat of data loss.
