The cloud offers a variety of advantages over traditional approaches to off-site disaster recovery (DR): It eliminates the capital expenditure of building and maintaining a secondary site for DR and provides flexibility and virtually limitless storage capacity.

However, the endless variety of options and all the buzz around DRaaS leaves businesses uncertain whether or not it’s a good fit for their infrastructure and why this technology can be a turning point for many organizations.
