Wanclouds Expands Disaster Recovery as a Service to Virtual Machines Alongside Kubernetes, Data, and Cloud VPC Resources & Security Policies
Wanclouds expanded the availability of its Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution across all Virtual Machines (VMs). By expanding beyond Kubernetes and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) resources, Wanclouds now offers all-inclusive backup and recovery for Linux and Windows-based virtual servers and user data. With the new capabilities, Wanclouds provides comprehensive multi-cloud backup and restore solutions across regions and clouds.

The Wanclouds DRaaS agent works within KVM, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V environments to provide live snapshot backups without disrupting the production environment. Developers don't have to put environments into rescue mode or stop services; the agent simply works behind the scenes to take a hard snapshot. The snapshot captures a point-in-time copy of the VM, which is a much quicker process than a full backup. Moreover, the user has the flexibility to take a backup of the data without the full image of the VM and restore it on-demand across regions. All backups are performed securely and stored in an encrypted format in the customer's object store.

"Regulations such as GDPR, PCI, and HIPAA are making it increasingly important for organizations to back up data that is vulnerable to cyber threats, hardware failures, or human error," said Faiz Khan, CEO of Wanclouds. "Unfortunately, small and midsize enterprises looking to stay compliant have been historically underserved by legacy disaster recovery options that are cost-prohibitive and resource-intensive. Wanclouds disaster recovery as a service gives every organization a simple and effective disaster recovery option to protect mission-critical data, ensure business continuity, and provide instant scalability across hybrid clouds."

Wanclouds' DRaaS is enabled through its SaaS-based automation suite VPC+, which provides a single pane of glass for managing and protecting hybrid cloud environments through a centralized cross-cloud solution. Wanclouds customers can leverage VPC+ for disaster recovery to back up all their VM and Kubernetes resources. They can restore it across different regions, physical servers, and clouds such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and IBM Cloud.

DRaaS is a reimagined approach to traditional disaster recovery strategies and eliminates the barriers for businesses seeking affordable, reliable, and compliant disaster recovery approaches. By offering disaster recovery ‘as a service', Wanclouds manages on-demand backups for the servers or clusters businesses need and restores them instantly when needed. Instead of needing to allocate millions upfront to build and sustain disaster recovery infrastructure, companies can pay a fraction of the monthly cost for protecting their current servers and clusters.

Specific features of Wanclouds Multi-Cloud Disaster Recovery as a Service include:

  • Sign up and create backups via a few simple clicks
  • Infrastrastructure-wide snapshots that can be restored on-demand - VPC Configurations, Design, Kubernetes, Data, Virtual Machines
  • Flexibility to schedule backups on any timeline
  • Restore on-demand across clouds and regions from backed-ups
  • Backups are stored within the customer cloud-object store and are fully encrypted
  • Visualize infrastructure design and track consumption
  • On-demand views of disaster recovery spending with detailed consumption reports

Subscribers can take advantage of this new comprehensive backup and recovery option alongside Wanclouds' Cost Optimization as a Service (COaaS) solution for just $9.99 per resource. The offer is all-inclusive of DRaaS VMs, VPCs, and Kubernetes for one year, enabling users to unlimited backup configurations and restore them on demand.

"We understand that IT leaders are being asked to do more with less in the current market," added Khan. "This blended solution enables them to address two of their top concerns for 2023 - cloud cost optimization and fully compliant backup - at an unbeatable price."
