Cloud Recovery: How to Handle Added Complexity in DR/BC Initiatives Resulting from the Cloud

Dave Kluger, Principal Technology Architect, StorCOM 

Moving data and applications into the cloud can create great efficiencies for enterprises. But going down this path can also add complexity in disaster recovery/business continuity initiatives.

Recent industry studies conclude that organizations face the following challenges in a cloud environment:

  • The ability to control failovers and make resources more highly available

  • Backup being hampered by resource and storage constraints

  • Too many tools, too little control

  • Downtime perception gap – outage can actually be twice as long as it is perceived to be

Topics that will be covered include:

  • What are the responsibilities of the cloud provider
  • Who takes ownership in a private versus hybrid approach in the event of a disaster
  • How to identify potential issues earlier
  • How to ensure that data and applications are treated the same across physical, virtual and cloud
  • How to simplify data protection processes
  • How to prioritize planning activities and processes which lessen downtime
