IBM Cloud Services

IBM Cloud Services for Virtualized Server Recovery (CVSR) maintains continuous business operations and improved resilience against data disruption. The fully managed cloud disaster recovery service aids virtual and physical locations on a virtualized cloud infrastructure at a designated secure data recovery center.


  • IBM has varying levels of test frequency, declaration costs, recovery targets and service pricing, making it easier for clients to create the ideal service for their needs.
  • Client-initiated premises-to-cloud failovers give clients more control over activities.
  • Recovery management simplicity is ideal for enterprise customers.
  • A comprehensive provider portal interface leads to accessible administration.

IBM offers an array of data protection options and a multi-tiered portal for shortened recovery times. The ready-to-go structure helps customers decrease time and investment in building, operating and managing the resiliency solution. IBM's data recovery service ensures non-stop replication of data to avoid hazardous gaps. Clients can also employ continuous data observation for a monthly subscription price.

Disaster recovery is a critical feature that every business, large or small, should employ. Without it, millions of dollars could be lost or entire businesses wiped out of existence. From hardware failures to large-scale natural disasters, businesses must be prepared to bounce back within the shortest timeframe possible or face dire consequences. Disaster Recovery as a Service is one option organizations should consider, especially if full-time, on-site DR staff is not an option.

The DRaaS industry has seen rapid evolution and growth since 2012. According to Gartner, the estimated "size of the DRaaS market will be approximately $1.3 billion, with a related compound annual growth rate of approximately 30 percent." By 2018, Gartner estimates that the size of the DRaaS market will exceed that of the market for more traditional subscription-based DR services.
