Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has become part of the mainstream compute infrastructure for both small and large businesses. But when public cloud services fail, businesses can find themselves in a “disaster recovery” scenario just as they would if they had a disruption in their own datacenter.
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are increasingly migrating their IT infrastructure from an on-premises model to public cloud platforms to capitalise on the cloud’s greater scale and flexibility. For managed service providers (MSPs), this means building a cloud practice is crucial for being able to fully support their clients’ needs.
With Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure, MSPs now have the ability to customise protection and streamline recovery for critical business infrastructure residing in Microsoft Azure. When paired with cloud technology, this comprehensive BCDR solution enables new revenue streams as you support your clients and transition to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) models.
When disaster strikes and operations go down, businesses panic. That anxiety is warranted. According to Datto’s 2019 State of the Channel Ransomware Report, 85% of managed service providers (MSPs) surveyed reported ransomware attacks against small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the last two years.
