Benefits Of Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery

Benefits of Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery

Developing a proper disaster recovery plan is quite a challenging task for any type of organization, especially small and medium business segments. When a disaster strikes your business, restoring it can be a really arduous task. Many companies are implementing cloud computing services for their disaster recovery plan. Cloud-based disaster recovery can be described as a component of a disaster recovery plan that involves maintaining copies of enterprise data in a cloud storage environment as a security measure.

Continuous data availability is an absolute essential at times of a disaster. With this wonderful plan, business continuity planning has become cost effective. The cloud’s pay pricing model is quite less, as it follows the principle of shared resources. Cloud storage facilities also manage and maintain the DR servers thereby reducing the impact of failures at the disaster site.

Let’s now have a look at the benefits which a company can gain by using cloud-based disaster recovery solutions.

Disaster recovery in the cloud:

Cloud-based disaster recovery is gaining a more prominent place in the whole disaster recovery world. It is streamlined, convenient, and successful in delivering a novel, continually evolving and improving solution for full-on data storage and recovery. Furthermore, this relatively new technological concept allows you to design your disaster recovery solution according to your users and business requirements. You are allowed to specify the data files and applications you require for various business departments, locations, RTO and RPO. As you make modifications in your business requirements, you can change these settings as well.

Cloud backup and recovery:

Cloud-based disaster recovery ensures that your data is recoverable and secured. As the cloud is easily scalable, you can instantly replicate your data on multiple cloud servers in multiple locations. By replicating the entire server and network configuration between data centers, the time consuming process of recovering data into the cold site environment is now replaced with just a few clicks. Many cloud storage service providers give customers an option to duplicate the cloud backup of data to any geographically diverse data center. An option to archive tape copies of select data is also provided.

Lowers deploying comprehensive disaster recovery plan:

While traditional disaster recovery plans have been expensive, unreliable and time consuming, cloud-based disaster recovery is more reliable, fast and affordable. One big advantage of using cloud-based disaster recovery is that it lowers the bar for many more business enterprises to provide comprehensive disaster recovery plans for their entire IT infrastructure. It also ensures fast deployment in a matter of minutes with easy
installation and configuration wizards.

Cost effective:

When it comes to cost, cloud-based disaster recovery is more economical than the traditional cold site disaster recovery plan. This innovative concept does not require any capital investment in terms of procuring new servers and deploying a new disaster recovery solution. Moreover, this plan comes with a pay-per-use billing model, thereby creating a customized disaster recovery solution that caters to your specific IT requirements without actually increasing costs.

As cloud storage provides unparalleled data protection with superior encryption and security procedures, data that is backed up onto the cloud can be restored whenever a disaster occurs. A cloud-based disaster recovery plan is critical for business continuity and is perhaps a great alternative for small business organizations strapped to a large budget.
