I’ve been reading a lot about continuity, and especially continuity in the cloud.  In the past, traditional disaster recovery and business continuity could mean for less critical businesses a tape-based recovery to a cold or warm recovery data center or for more critical businesses a replicated data center, significant data storage capabilities, and mirroring of mission-critical systems. The more critical businesses type of model could get expensive just to build, not to mention maintain and keep current.hp-servers-in-apple-data-center-300x207.jpg

 

Continuity/Recovery in / from the Cloud is not as simple as “ I’m storing my information in the cloud so I can get it back if I need it… “ it’s not just the data you are going to need, it’s your applications, and it’s how quickly can you get your hands on everything vs. waiting to piece it all together.  It’s not as simple as just copying everything in the cloud then using it.

 

Finding a cloud provider that can handle both the data and applications, the SLA’s for recovery that meet your business needs, and have the processes / methodologies in place to bring your business back on line are just a few things that need to be considered when thinking about the Cloud as a recovery mechanism.

 

Take a look at this recent viewpoint paper called “ Open for business” which has some great insights into things you should consider, and how you can take advantage of Cloud based Recovery-as-a-Service.

 

There’s also some great information on the Enterprise Cloud Services – Continuity website that will give you a view into how we can cut recovery time and costs thru this service.
