PROVIDE DISASTER RECOVERY IN THE CLOUD
There are a lot of benefits with cloud computing – cost-effective resource use, rapid provisioning, scalability and elasticity. One of the most significant advantages to cloud computing is how it changes disaster recovery. Disaster recovery procedures within an organization aren't a new concept, but many organizations do not have adequate disaster recovery protection for their applications and critical data. In most cases, disaster recovery is perceived as too expensive, complex and unreliable. Cloud makes it more cost-effective and lowers the bar for enterprises to deploy comprehensive disaster recovery plans for their entire IT infrastructure.
Disaster recovery is a natural fit for the cloud, and providing disaster recovery services makes resources broadly accessible for all applications and sites by providing cost-efficient, automated and simple disaster protection. Cloud computing delivers faster recovery times and multi-site availability than conventional disaster recovery by eliminating the cost of a second physical site.
One of the added benefits of disaster recovery with cloud computing is the ability to fine tune costs and performance. SecondSite™ Backup is one cloud application that can replicate data in a secure offsite location in case of a disaster. Applications and servers that are deemed less critical can be turned down with fewer resources, while assuring that the most critical applications get the resources they need to keep the business running through the disaster.
