5 Tips to Slay the Cloud Disaster Recovery Dragon

IT organizations are choosing the cloud to harness the never-ending onslaught of data coming at them, from sales to social media. Storing data in the cloud, along with virtualized datacenters, is becoming a far more common practice as the cloud offers elastic storage capacity, giving IT more freedom in moving workloads and eliminating operational waste.  While the cloud is less of an esoteric concept now, what has not gotten the attention it should is data recovery. That’s scary, considering the incidence of company data breaches is on the rise. Cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) is the next hill for IT to take, the next frontier to conquer. It’s time for IT to take the reins and deliver cloud DR that can provide a stronger offense against cyberattacks through better visibility, tighter security and cross-platform management.
