Service Description DRaaS will automatically manage recovery point retention, helping customers to optimize their protection service and minimize costs. DRaaS can be used for recovery of servers located in a private, “On-Premise” datacenter (Off Cloud), or for customers with computing solutions already in the datacenter, or between datacenters (On Cloud).  DRaaS includes 24×7 support using the support ticketing system or phone support.

In the event of a situation that interrupts access to your primary computing platform services, will inherit this new site traffice, without you having to do anything (besides establish your address as your secondary IP or URL).  Once the recovery request is confirmed the will be awaiting any failure from your primary site, and routing traffic to it.

There are no limits on the amount of time the recovery site can be used as the “new” primary (temporary) website. The moment your primary website is back up, your traffic will return to that primary IP or URL immediately. You will not have to do anything to toggle or control this traffic.
