A Guide to Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

Most organizations know they need to protect
their business critical information to minimize
downtime in the event of outages, failures,
disasters and other disruptions. But not all
companies have the budget, expertise, or
time to develop a comprehensive disaster
recovery plan.

Traditional disaster recovery plans are
prohibitively complex and expensive for
mid-sized businesses with limited budgets
and resources to successfully configure and
manage a solution in-house.
According to an IDG market survey, 43% of respondents
are getting started with hybrid cloud to improve their
disaster recovery capabilities.

For organizations with disaster recovery
services in place, the challenge often lies in
supporting the ongoing maintenance and
re-evaluating the initial investment versus
newer offerings as their environment
continues to expand, or leases expire.
