UAE-based BIOS Middle East has announced that it has been included in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant report on Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), for the third year in a row.
Gartner’s June 2019 Magic Quadrant report on DRaaS, has BIOS Middle East as one of only 11 companies globally and the only company from the Middle East on their 2019 DRaaS Magic Quadrant.
Gartner defines the DRaaS market as offering a productised service for which the provider manages server image and production data replication to the cloud; Disaster recovery run book creation; Automated failover and failback between on premise and the cloud; Network element and functionality configuration for recovery operations with the ability to support a combination of virtual and physical Source servers.
“Being the only regional player to appear in Gartner’s Global Magic Quadrant for DRaaS is a testament to our commitment to offer our customer’s an excellent, easy to use and affordable Disaster Recovery solution to protect their IT platforms” said Rudi Feitsma, general manager, BIOS Middle East.
According to Gartner DRaaS differentiates itself from other recovery solutions as all elements of the DR-as-a-Service must be included in the service offering contract between the provider and customer with quantifiable SLA’s for recovery objectives. Services may be delivered by the provider as a fully managed offering, an assisted recovery offering or as self-service.
“Leveraging the cloud provides companies with an IT platform that provides on demand scale, agility, and cost benefits which is often a key step for them in their digital transformation journeys. DRaaS offers these companies a simple way to protect their business-critical applications and data. We continue to support regional enterprises in all market segments and all sizes of operation in the GCC, as they embrace cloud,” said Feitsma added.
