Ajubeo Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) instills confidence in executive teams working on the corporate business continuity plan as well as the IT and audit teams in place to execute the DR plan. The reason is simple. Ajubeo cloud infrastructure was built for DR. With a 100% uptime SLA, maximum uptime datacenters, high-availability (HA) architecture and best-of-breed technology, Ajubeo has laid the foundation for unparalleled reliability and performance. Custom architecture, innovative software, and deep VMware integration create a flexible DRaaS solution that enables users to define RPO, RTO, VM-by-VM protection, and delivery model while establishing an easy-to-repeat recovery process that keeps companies within recovery windows.
Hypervisor-based recovery: unrivaled speed & cost effectiveness
Array-based recovery mandates the creation of duplicate infrastructures (same storage type, vendor, LUN configuration, etc.), which is extremely cost-prohibitive and can rule-out preferred cloud vendors if they are using conflicting storage technology. Ajubeo DRaaS is 100% hardware neutral and allows the user to define what VMs they want protected as compared to a holistic recovery mandate. This combined with WAN optimization, superior de-duplication and storage consolidation dramatically reduces the cost of enterprise-class BCDR. The recovery from production to DR takes less than 4 hours in the majority of cases, with the restoration process beginning with a few simple clicks of the mouse. No risky manual workarounds, on-the-fly IP address changes or other time-consuming efforts are necessary.
Making a business case for Ajubeo DRaas
What is the cost of your current DR service?
How much of your data needs protection? (% & size)
What is your actual time-to-full recovery?
What is your optimal RTO? § How much revenue is lost per hour in a disaster?
How much headcount cost
On-premises-to-cloud and/or cloud-to-cloud recovery
Considering site recovery manager or traditional DR services? There is simply no comparison.
Site Recovery Manager and traditional disaster recovery methods cannot compete with Ajubeo DRaaS. At a high-level, both SRM and traditional methods are cost prohibitive and lack the flexibility, reliability and simplicity of the Ajubeo offering. There are numerous, specific gaps in service capability characterized in part by the sample table below.

Ajubeo makes managing BCDR easy & affordable
Ajubeo has included unlimited support-related hours in the monthly cost of DRaaS to ensure there are no overages/unexpected fees that occur as a result of a customer DR request. This includes semi-annual DR testing, day-to-day support, configuration, and RPO/RTO changes. Customers can failover to live compute, or leverage Ajubeo’s concept of standby compute which allows for guaranteed availability of compute resources on a time-committed SLA. Ajubeo DRaaS customers also have contact information for responsive 24-hour support.
