Solutions Review Names 4 DRaaS Vendors to Watch, 2021

Solutions Review Names 4 DRaaS Vendors to Watch, 2021Solutions Review’s DRaaS Vendors to Watch is an annual listing of solution providers we believe are worth monitoring. Companies are commonly included if they demonstrate a product roadmap aligning with our meta-analysis of the marketplace. Other criteria include recent and significant funding, talent acquisition, a disruptive or innovative new technology or product, or inclusion in a major analyst publication.

The DRaaS marketplace is not exempt from continuous change. Elements like failback, seamless heterogeneous workload support, and orchestrated recovery, which once differentiated vendors from each other a few years ago, are now essential to an effective solution. Users expect more from providers and their ability to perform more granular recovery of workloads and address a myriad of factors that cause disasters. In response to these changes, some providers have built upon their existing momentum, while others have shifted the focus of their DRaaS strategies.

These DRaaS Vendors to Watch have met at least two of our five points of inclusion and represent, to some degree, the evolution of the marketplace. It’s in that spirit we turn our attention to the immediate future. Providers are listed in alphabetical order. Provider names and logos are linked so you can learn more.
