Some things are just better together. Peanut butter + jelly, Simon + Garfunkel…BaaS + DRaaS.

Leverage this power combo to create a continuity plan that fits your business.

Zeroes + ones

Data drives your business. Providing your data with both cost-effective long-term storage, and protection from threats like human error, natural disaster, ransomware, is crucial to your brand reputation, customer and talent retention, and your bottom line.

Once upon a time, you just backed everything up—no matter what kind of data you were dealing with. But today’s IT gives you the power to go beyond the old one-size-fits-all solution and create a business continuity plan tailored to fit your business and your data.


Know your data

Different types of data can be protected in different ways. So, understanding how your business uses data and knowing your tolerance for data loss and recovery time (RPO/RTO) helps you tier your data and optimize the economic and strategic benefits of a comprehensive recovery plan.

Understand the options

When it comes to mission critical data, compute, and networking, you need Disaster Recovery as a Service. DRaaS solutions keep data geographically isolated and constantly up to date, providing fast recovery with minimal data and infrastructure loss.

But what about the rest of your data? The power of DRaaS isn’t the most efficient or cost-effective option for your long-term storage and low-risk infrastructure—that data with RPO/RTO of days or weeks instead of minutes or seconds. It’s here that Backup as a Service (BaaS) shines, with lower-cost solutions that focus on secure, economical, long-term storage for non-mission critical or archival data.

Ask the experts

Individually, BaaS and DRaaS solutions focus on minimizing data loss. But when has a “one-size-fits-all” ever fit anyone that well? In a word, never. So, talk to the experts at ThinkOn about how they can help you tier your data and combine the best of our industry-leading BaaS and DRaaS solutions to optimize every aspect of your recovery. Now that’s a perfect fit.
