Rapid failover of virtual machines keeps your data safe without costing you a fortune. DRaaS is ideal for organizations who can't afford downtime in their operations and want assistance with turnkey DR including deployment, management, testing, and failover.
Many hear “disaster recovery” and immediately think of natural disasters, but the top causes of downtime are actually operational failures, such as power, network, and IT hardware and software disruption. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) allows you to replicate critical portions of your IT infrastructure — or even your entire IT environment — to another location, with multiple replication target host sites ensuring geographic diversity.
Unlike Backup as a Service, where file data needs to be restored, DRaaS allows you to failover and spin up your infrastructure in the target location very quickly. Depending on requirements and specifications your critical systems can be up and running in seconds or minutes.
Green House Data's DRaaS product is a VM-level disaster recovery solution that supports physical hardware or virtual servers hosted on VMware, Hyper-V, Azure, or AWS. In addition, you can replicate from your premise to a Green House Data IaaS environment, or from cloud to cloud.
Servers are replicated from the source to the target with automated orchestration of the failover and reconfiguration. DRaaS can also can be used cross-hypervisor, so virtual machines can be moved from one vendor to another.
With the primary licensing model based on metered usage, you only pay for the resources you use: per virtual machine server and memory spec (only while your recovery environment is live) and per gigabyte for storage and bandwidth.
You can replicate to any tier of storage, and perform self-service tests as needed.
Green House Data helped us create a custom cloud disaster recovery solution that has greatly reduced costs and eased our concerns of data loss in an emergency. In our tests, they continue to offer a reliably fast time to recovery.CORE Business Services

Prioritize recovery times by critical need, whether entire systems, databases or even single applications.
Replicate virtual environments without worrying about your OS or your hypervisor.
After working for two years with a backup system that needed constant monitoring, switching to Green House Data has taken a significant chunk of time and energy out of my backup and restore routines. We can now focus on so much more. It has been incredible.Novus Biologicals
Managed Disaster Recovery services includes base DR services and features with custom additional engagements suited to each customer environment.
Green House Data will work with the customer to clearly define and document all disaster recovery trigger events and recovery runbooks. Disaster Recovery Event process may be automated or require manual approval or interaction. Disaster Recovery Event tasks and ownership will be clearly assigned to the appropriate resources.
Green House Data will work with the customer to standardize a formal failback process and associated runbook, including custom Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) for each server or application under the DR plan. The System Failback process may be automated or require manual approval or interaction.
Each server will have a specific testing process defined and documented within the runbook. Both automated and manual procedures may be included.
Each server recovery process will be tested at a minimum of twice a year. Green House Data will provide a standard report showing success or failure of test, with all failures resolved by the Green House Data management service team.
Green House Data will provide a Quarterly Service Review four times a year. The service review provides detail about the DR infrastructure costs, utilization metrics, and recovery statistics. Continued service recommendations will provide insight into how disaster recovery process, procedures, and failback procedures can improve. Green House Data will include service details, including number of tickets submitted, resolution times, and completed ticket survey responses.
All replication system and infrastructure components will be monitored to ensure connectivity and functionality is active. Any issues with DR functionality will be resolved by the Green House Data managed services team and communicated directly to the customer.
