The basic difference between Backup & disaster recovery solution is RTO & RPO.
Backup: In backup, the backup frequency defines the RPO & time to restore data defines the RTO.
disaster solution: in disaster solutions most of the organization will keep the real time data movement from source to Target so RPO is near zero & the RTO is just a network changing from source to Target. So there is small period of downtime of the production/

Backup is to have multiple copies with longer period.
Disaster recovery will give you business continuity without down time.

Backup need to restore to production site for use. Disaster recovery site will become production site when Primary/production site is not available.

Backup: Creating the copy of your data in secondary location to restore it back when any disaster happens at primary location.
Disaster Recovery: The process of restoring your data from a backup site/DR site at the time of disaster/data loss.
