Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster Recovery as a Service gives the possibility to restore  your IT environment, on the T-Mobile infrastructure, in case of a failover.  Thanks to the DRaaS, whenever a crisis situation occurs, you will reduce the time of unavailability of your IT services and systems to a minimum. This service is available in the single (Private Cloud) or multi -tenant model (Virtual Data Centre) and built using VMware vCloud Availability feature. DRaaS could beaccessed and managed using the VMware Cloud Director panel provided by T-Mobile or by means of your VMware vCentre.


The service is provided in the following models:

  • Virtual Data Centre (VDC) – recovery on a shared infrastructure,
  • Private Cloud – on a dedicated infrastructure.

As part of DRaaS, we offer three standard disaster recovery plans (DRPs). It is also possible to choose an individual plan tailored to your needs.
