Cloud computing, virtualization some of the best disaster recovery optionsMarch 4, 2013 No Comments
Cloud computing and virtualization are gaining steam as some of the most effective disaster recovery solutions. Firms looking to ensure they can operate during major disruptions should strongly consider the advantages of both the cloud and virtual environments. A recent Business2Community report by Jared Jacobs indicated that 25 percent of companies that experience a disaster close their doors for good.
Jacobs explained that cloud computing has grown in popularity in recent years, thanks in large part from support from major vendors. Firms leveraging the cloud for recovery purposes migrate their mission-critical data to an off-site location, meaning any disruptions that impact physical infrastructure do not harm cloud-based environments. Although security has been an inhibitor to the adoption of the solutions, service providers are making strides to keep information safe.CLOUD COMPUTING, Featured Articles
