The traditional way of preparing for disaster recovery (DR) — by physically moving data off-site on tapes — is already old-fashioned. Leveraging the cloud is a more efficient way to modernize your DR strategy. Cloud-based DR provides a number of advantages over the traditional approach. It allows you to save with a pay-as-you-go model, use a functionally unlimited storage capacity and get the flexibility of the cloud. At the same time, integration of the cloud in your off-site backup and recovery solution brings up new challenges that you need to address.
This essential guide, by Orin Thomas, an IT Pro and bestselling author, covers the most important aspects to consider when planning your cloud backup and DR strategy. You’ll understand the benefits of cloud-based DR solutions in comparison to the traditional off-site backup and recovery services and get insights to implementing Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). The utilization of cloud facilities managed and offered by service providers makes DRaaS an excellent off-site backup and recovery solution for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
The guide unlocks the most common concerns around data security management in the cloud and the cost-efficiency of cloud services. You’ll also get recommendations on how to meet compliance regulations and choose the right DRaaS vendor.
Read this e-book to learn how you can address the challenges around cloud backup and DR, including:

  • The drawbacks of traditional off-site backup and recovery
  • Managing and monitoring cloud backup and DR
  • Cloud security concerns
  • And more!
