According to an online survey from Forrester and the Disaster Recovery (DR) Journal, businesses reported 72% of their data and applications were either mission-critical or business-critical. With such a large percentage of data and applications deemed critical to function, implementing and maintaining a “DR in the Cloud” strategy is more important than ever. The Cloud offers a robust solution that incorporates fast recovery times, regular testing and virtual resources management of your mission-critical applications.
1 – Faster Recovery Times with DR in the Cloud
Some disaster recovery solutions, such as tape only backups, have recovery times ranging from days to weeks, resulting in costly downtime for a business. Virtualizing your DR strategy through Cloud makes for much faster recovery times. Data, applications, operating systems and patches can be bundled into virtual servers that are copied and saved for later. If disaster strikes, recovery is as simple as spinning up the copied virtual servers. Better yet, businesses can make as many copies as they need to maintain the most up to date information.
