According to the IDC MarketScape, cloud-based disaster recovery services have emerged rapidly as both small and large businesses look for a cost-effective way to ensure that data is protected and business activities can continue in the event of a system-wide disruption. The IDC MarketScape cites IBM as being well known and respected in the industry, offering disaster recovery services long before DRaaS was even a concept.
IBM was named as a leader in the report. IBM Resiliency Services' strong consulting services, size, scale and long history of DR services, ability to manage entire DR process for the customer, and complete solution across all platforms are just some of the strengths noted by the IDC MarketScape.
