Datrium has announced the introduction of Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS. Built on Datrium's workload orchestrator, ControlShift, this new SaaS solution provides ‘the world's first production support of fully automated failover to the VMware Cloud on AWS based on snapshots held in AWS S3’, according to the company.

Datrium DRaaS offers comprehensive disaster recovery and cloud backup for data protection of on-premises Datrium DVX systems, with Datrium providing a single point of ordering, billing and support, eliminating the need to manage AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS accounts directly.

Datrium DRaaS enables organizations to make the cloud their DR data center at a fraction of the cost of a second data center / centre, delivering 10x or greater cost savings, says Datrium.

Enterprises using Datrium DRaaS ‘can be confident that their DR plan will provide fast failback, granularly recovering thousands of VMs after a sudden disaster or a rolling disaster such as a ransomware attack’.
