CloudDR as a Service

Add disaster recovery to your cloud backup in one simple step.

When it comes to critical business systems and customer facing services, each hour of downtime costs money and can damage a business’s reputation. In fact, according to the IDC, a single unplanned downtime can cost a small/medium business on average £30,000 to £300,000. Disaster Recovery as a service (DRaaS) minimises recovery time by quickly spinning up the systems in a cloud data centre. So, in the case of a serious outage, businesses can be back and up and running in minutes.

RecoveryCloud is a simple and affordable DRaaS solution. Built on our Online backup product, it protects critical workloads by instantly spinning up IT systems in a managed cloud recovery site, recovering them to any hardware. All this is delivered from a single online console and using the same backup agent, replication, backup storage, and cloud infrastructure. This means that you can add and configure a cloud-based recovery server with just a few clicks!


A secure DRaaS solution - Ensure data safety and security with features like encrypted backups during failover, proactive AI-based ransomware protection, and two-factor authentication for the portal login.

Under 15-minute RPOs and RTOs - Achieve both RPOs and RTOs shorter than 15 minutes*. The RunVM engine enables best-in-class production and test failover speed, while flexible backup frequency policies lead to tighter RPOs.

Recovery servers RPO compliance tracking - Improve SLA compliance by defining recovery point thresholds and tracking RPO compliance in real-time via the web console.

Disaster recovery orchestration with runbooks - Automate key disaster recovery scenarios and ensure your systems will be recovered in the correct order to address interdependencies between applications.

Automated testing of all key disaster recovery scenarios - Verify the integrity of your disaster recovery plans by executing runbooks in test-mode via the web console and isolating testing from the production network.

Seamless extension of local networks to the cloud recovery site - Extend up to five local networks to the cloud recovery site to provide transparent remote access to recovery servers in failover mode. Our VPN virtual appliance makes it simple.

Dissimilar hardware recovery with Universal Restore - Restore Windows and Linux systems to the same, similar, or dissimilar hardware during a failback procedure, including baremetal, physical, virtual, or cloud.

Local failover with Instant Restore - In the event of single server failures, you can leverage the existing on-premises infrastructure resources by spinning up any physical or virtual Windows or Linux system locally in seconds, directly from the backup storage on your existing Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere ESXi host.


  Zero CAPEX - Protect your budget with no investments in an off-site DR facility, or in on-premises software and hardware.
  Managed cloud recovery site - Leverage the full cloud infrastructure with the ability to failover to and run machines in the cloud.
  Easy, intuitive solution - Enjoy a self-service web-based console for key operations like disaster recovery testing, failover, and failback.
  Enable disaster recovery with a few clicks- Add and configure a cloud-based recovery server with just a few clicks using theintuitive web console.
  Disaster recovery for any workload - Support all popular workloads – Windows and Linux, major hypervisors, and business applications.

Built on Online Backup

Enable disaster recovery in minutes - Adding disaster recovery capabilities to Online Backup only takes a matter of minutes. The solutions utilize the same agent, web console, replication, backup storage, and cloud infrastructure.

Disaster recovery with no upfront costs - Charges for compute resources apply only in the event of a production failover or failover testing. If you already back up your machines with Online Backup and store the backups in our cloud, the only additional, on-going cost is for hot disaster recovery storage.

Easier management - DRaas and Online Backup are managed from a single console and use the same backup agent. Managing just one solution, you can perform daily and periodic operations more quickly and easily. Meanwhile, if your team is already familiar with the Online Backup interface, it requires virtually no training to use RecoveryCloud.
