• Cloud Backup or Backup as a Service (BaaS) protects the customer’s data in the cloud. This allows the customer to recover a file or a server back to hardware on the customer premises. Cloud Backup may integrate with a customer’s on-premises backup software, such as CommVault, ArcServe, or Symantec, and often serves as a replacement for tape. Alternately, Backup as a Service is a managed solution in which the provider brings the software to the customer premises.
• Cloud DR or Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) protects the customer’s business, as opposed to only the data. This allows the customer to recover their entire IT environment – servers, storage, network, data, and apps – in the cloud. Customers can quickly resume business operations in a matter of hours., instead of waiting until their onsite environment is rebuilt. Disaster Recovery typically leverages replication technologies, which can be host-based (at the server level), like Double-Take or Zerto, or array-based (at the storage level), like EMC or NetApp
