Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery were the most commonly cited reasons (60%) for having adopted Cloud-based solutions for backup and recovery. Enterprises acknowledge that cloud backups and recovery are required to maintain business operations and business continuity. The ability to recover data, when needed, in a cost effective manner was widely cited as one of the main criteria used to select a particular Cloud service. This whitepaper takes a look at both the advantages for those who have transitioned to cloud solutions and drawbacks for those who haven’t. Key takeaways from this whitepaper: Characteristics of today’s retention landscape Business Continuity, not simply Data Recovery, is the actual requirement Are Cloud-based backup & recovery solutions being used to address these needs? Benefits of using the cloud for backup, recovery and business continuity Criteria used to select Cloud solutions Hindrances to adoption of Cloud-based solutions for backup and recovery
What is Cloud Computing ?
