Eight Key Considerations When Planning Hybrid Cloud Backups

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2015-04-13

When it comes to business continuity for most enterprises, a physical appliance sits at the center of the data center. Most IT departments use disk-to-disk (D2D) hardware and replication of some sort as the main protection for backup and recovery of critical data, servers and applications. While D2D backup has its shortcomings, including high capital cost, capacity planning challenges and finite storage constraints, it's generally tested, trusted and reliable. It's the convention. With these same services in a cloud model becoming more broadly adopted, many enterprises are considering hybrid cloud backup as a viable option for their data protection needs. Who doesn't want lower costs and increased efficiency? It's a crowded market, so understanding the top requirements will be the key to architecting a hybrid cloud backup and recovery solution that ensures fast and reliable data protection, with the cost savings. In this slide show, developed using eWEEK reporting and industry insight from cloud-based service provider Infrascale, we bring you some important considerations when planning a new-gen business continuity system.
