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.
