As part of the DRaaS product (Disaster Recovery as a Service), customer data is backed up to a dedicated Cloud Backup environment (Backup as a Service - BaaS) powered by a Predatar and IBM Spectrum Protect within the IBM Softlayer cloud. It is also possible for those with on - premise deployments of BaaS, whereby IBM Spectrum Protect is replicated via an onsite IBM Spectrum Protect instance to the Cloud Backup environment. Data Replication to the Cloud environment is critical to this service to ensure speed of recovery in the event of a disaster.
The minimum DRaaS configuration consists of an IBM Spectrum Protect instance and Secure Cloud Gateway. All clients that need to be backed up to this environment can do so over an IPSec VPN tunnel provided on the gateway. The configuration of the gateway is provided as part of Silverstring’s Backup as a Service product. Once data is ingested in to the Cloud instance, it is then ready for recovery.
DRaas is designed for progressive organisations that value control and customisation and want a single solution to safeguard both physical and virtual workloads wherever they are located.
Silverstring delivers on - demand disaster recovery by leveraging IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Cloud so you only pay for the resources you use. It eliminates the waste associated with traditional syndicated or insurance based contracts.
