Businesses with fast scalability and high bandwidth consumption, driven by trends such as Big Data and Internet of Things (IOT) face several challenges when setting up disaster recovery infrastructures. Concerns are not just about investing in significant capital expenditure, but also costs related to operating expenses that can include upkeep and frequent changes in workloads.
Even after putting in place an effective disaster recovery plan, you are not through. You must implement a disaster recovery testing plan that ensures that your DR recovery strategies are working correctly. Why, because an untested plan is as good as no plan at all.
Remember, testing accomplishes several goals, but by a long shot these are the main ones.
It verifies whether your recovery approaches are correct
It makes your team familiar with the procedures so that they can function in a crisis situation
In such a scenario Disaster Recovery (DR) on cloud is a good solution.
There are several benefits that make DR on cloud compelling. Chief among them is the variety of ways you can adopt them, for example:
We must understand that the cloud based DR that was available more than a decade ago enabled companies to hire an allocation of CPU, RAM and networking resources at a shared facility. This was no doubt effective for smaller businesses. But if the infrastructures become complex and data volumes increase drastically, such a set-up can fail to deliver. Presently, however, cloud technologies have improved a lot, choices for user have increased and costs have drastically come down. As one IT executive rightly pointed out, “Nowadays DRaaS is easy to configure and execute and prices are attractive”.
Some of the compelling benefits are availability of stand-alone DR solutions. Providers are able to design and manage for their clients a secure multi-tenant cloud based DR platforms that offer almost instant recovery. But at the end of the day successful execution is everything.
Providers of DRaaS must minimize the impact of a potential disaster and in no time must resume critical operations. After all, this is what disaster recovery is all about.
