Cloud recovery service quiz tests details about DR

Cloud-based disaster recovery can be a cost-effective, practical means of DR. Discover how well you know this method compared to a more conventional DR approach with physical sites.

Many organizations now use a cloud recovery service for their DR. This disaster recovery as a service, or DRaaS, is especially helpful for small and medium-sized businesses looking for a cheaper and simpler offering than traditional, on-premises DR.

There's a lot to understand in the cloud recovery service market, and organizations should have a firm grasp on the technology before implementing it. Bandwidth, security, latency and licensing are among the concerns that need to be addressed. Even cost can be an issue -- continuing to operate in the cloud after a disaster can quickly become expensive.

In the face of cloud DR, enterprises may stick with their traditional disaster recovery setup, citing a previous large investment and uneasiness at taking on a technology that is still quite new. But DRaaS vendors are growing in number and also expanding their services.

How well do you know cloud recovery service terms, features and products? What about on-premises disaster recovery? Take this quiz to test your knowledge.
