Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market Research, 2031

The global disaster recovery-as-a-service market was valued at $6.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $60.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 23.9% from 2022 to 2031.Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service market is gaining huge popularity as it helps millions of businesses across the world in case of natural disasters such as hardware failure, file corruption, power outage, and others. It also helps in encountering interruptions in business due to natural calamities such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, and others.

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service industry is growing at a rapid pace as it helps organizations in case of problematic events such as cyber-attacks, blackouts, and others thereby ensuring the continuity to the businesses and protecting their crucial data. Disaster recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) is a cloud computing model that allows businesses to back up their data and IT architecture on a third-party cloud computing system and deliver all disaster recovery (DR) orchestration through a software as a service (SaaS) solution to recover functionality and access to IT infrastructure after a disaster. Due to this service model, a business needs to rely on the disaster recovery service provider to manage all of the resources in the event of a disaster rather than try to do themselves.

Many companies with small IT staffs simply cannot afford to invest the necessary time in disaster recovery plans' study, implementation, and thorough testing. DRaaS relieves the organization from the tedious data recovery relying on the disaster recovery-as-a-service providers. It is considerably less expensive than maintaining the own disaster management infrastructure which reduces the tasks of the IT team within an organization. DRaaS offers many enterprises a practical answer to a persistent issue. However, a cyberattack that results in a data breach is one in which confidential, sensitive data that should have been kept private has been disclosed without authorization is expected to hinder the disaster recovery-as-a-Service market growth.

The industry players are investing a lot of effort in the research and development of smart and unique strategies to sustain their growth in the disaster recovery-as-a-service market forecast. These strategies include product launches, mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, partnerships, and technological advancements. For instance, on October 15, 2020, a disaster recovery site has been created by IBM using IBM Cloud infrastructure to assist KAZ Minerals, a major copper producer in Kazakhstan, in protecting and maintaining operations even in the condition of a disaster.

The key players profiled in this report include IBM Corporation, Axcient, Sunguard, Amazon Web Services, Inc., Cable & Wireless Communications Limited., TierPoint, LLC., Microsoft Corporation, VMware Inc., NTT Communications Corporation, and Rackspace Technology.

By operating model, the managed DRaaS gas sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. The managed DRaaS model entails that every recovery strategy's planning, testing, and monitoring are handled by the provider. Every aspect of recovery has to be handled by a managed DRaaS provider so that team can concentrate on other business priorities. A managed DRaaS provider manages recovery process in the event of a disaster, whether this is cooperating with IT team or doing the workflow tasks on own. Although managed DRaaS typically costs more than other DRaaS options, it provides the highest degree of support and ensures that the recovery will address and satisfy specific business demands. These are predicted to be the major factors driving the disaster recovery-as-a-service market share during the forecast period.

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market by Service Type

By service type, the real-time replication sub-segment dominated the global disaster recovery-as-a-service market size in 2021. Real-time file replication safeguards files of any type and size across sites in an event of disaster, enabling it to achieve sub-five-second RPOs (Recovery Point Objectives) and RTOs (Recovery Time Objectives) within minutes of an outage. Such applications of disaster recovery-as-a-service in real-time replication are bound to create a scope of growth for the sub-segment during the forecast period.

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market by Deployment Mode

By deployment mode, public cloud sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. The public cloud offers hyper-scale and on-demand scalability with simplified disaster recovery. The public cloud can automate data backup, offers automated scalable disaster recovery services, and supports geographic diversity with business continuity. Public clouds provide resource optimization by dealing with time-intensive & error-prone activities. Additionally, there are certain cloud backup and disaster recovery products available that are similar to conventional on-premises products that use agents to safeguard virtual computers and their data. Public clouds are very dependable; they keep all the data in a small number of copies and offer up to 100% uptime. They are excellent for use as failover sites as there is no need for separate disaster recovery site for software, hardware, licenses, and maintenance.

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market by Organization Size

By organization size, large enterprise sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. Various companies operating in disaster recovery-as-a-service offer various disaster recovery services to large enterprises. For instance, the Acronis Cyber Backup-based system is quick to deploy, simple to use, and offers comprehensive restore, disaster recovery, and enhanced threat protection. Acronis Cyber Disaster Recovery provides instant availability and business continuity for larger enterprises that choose to handle disaster recovery internally. Every component can be mapped in a disaster recovery tool, allowing critical data linked to the operating system, network information, security rules, or application-related data to be quickly replicated and made live in an offsite DR (Disaster Recovery) site. The ability to access information from anywhere in the world is the most important aspect of disaster recovery. This enables businesses to launch a DR site even from their mobile device. This is only possible for a large enterprise that has the financial capability. These factors are predicted to boost the growth of the large enterprise sub-segment during the forecast period.

Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Market by End-use Industry

By end-use industry, the Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI) sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. BFSI organizations comprehend the principles of "Predictive Intelligence," which include incident prevention, detection, response, recovery, and restoration, and develop the necessary approach to execute resilience. RTO and RPO are significant in the context of business continuity. Recovery Time Objective (RTO) indicates the amount of time between an incident and the restoration of activities, whereas Recovery Point Objective (RPO) relates to the maximum tolerable data loss in terms of time. The rapid growth in online/mobile banking, digitization, blockchain, and Unified Payment Interface (UPI) has led to an increase in demand for the disaster recovery-as-a-service market in the present years.
