The rise of disaster recovery in the cloud

Sponsored by SearchDisasterRecovery.com

Today, a number of organizations are moving their backups to a public cloud in an effort to place the backups at a safe distance from regional disasters, while also reducing backup-related storage costs. Prior to writing backups to the cloud, however, there are a number of considerations that must be taken into account. Administrators must not only plan for how cloud-based backups will be restored in times of emergency, they will also need to determine how long the recovery effort could potentially take and whether it is better to perform a traditional restoration or to use the backups to temporarily run virtual machines in the cloud while the recovery efforts are underway. In doing so, administrators will also need to establish a cost estimate for the available recovery options. This handbook will help administrators to weigh their options while also addressing the most common pitfalls of cloud-based backups.
