A loss of data or productivity can be disastrous for an organization. While many companies see the value in protecting their operations from downtime or loss, they simply don’t have the in-house expertise or budget to develop a sufficient recovery plan. What if you were told that there was a flexible, lower-cost solution to increasing your resiliency? The secret’s out – companies are exponentially adopting cloud-based models to improve their disaster recovery capabilities. Here’s why:
1. It’s Easy to Get Started
Forget complex processes that involve hardware, hiring and training specialized staff, etc. With cloud-based disaster recovery setup is simple, secure and automated. In the event of a disaster or disruptive occurrence, applications and data are replicated and recovered easily – so you don’t have to worry.
2. It’s a Flexible, Lower-Cost Alternative
Stop compromising your security in order to stay within budget. In-house BDR solutions are expensive and relatively static. Cloud-based BDR options are flexible and scalable, meaning you only pay for what you need, plus you don’t need to invest in all of the hardware.
3. It’s a Simplified Environment
Don’t tear your hair out trying to create a disaster recovery plan when you can consolidate all of your IT needs under one roof. With cloud-based models you can leverage the same tools, skill sets and processes that you currently use with confidence and ease.
4. There’s Consistency in Management
Don’t hire new specialized staff or invest in complex training for current staff on BDR processes. Cloud-based models provide a single interface and common management with your onsite environment. Therefore, admins can operate in an environment they are comfortable in with access to your BDR at all times.
