Cloud disaster recovery is a strategy for backing up and restoring your data on the cloud. It involves storing and maintaining copies of your electronic records in a cloud environment to keep your information secure. Cloud service providers aim to provide an organization with a way to recover data in the case of an unforeseen event.
How Does Disaster Recovery Work?
There are a number of advantages of using cloud services, which include a confident strategy for disaster recovery. Disaster recovery can be implemented in-house or purchased from a service provider. You can even do a hybrid model with partial in-house implementation and the rest as a service. There is a solution for all company sizes, whether they are small-scale or large-scale enterprises.
Typically, cloud service providers will charge you for storage on a pay-per-use model. The cost really depends on capacity and bandwidth. The service provider takes care of the entire infrastructure, i.e., purchasing, setting it up and any other resource that is needed for business continuity. They will also hire professionals to maintain, support, and secure the equipment in the data center.
Failover and Data Recovery
Effective cloud disaster recovery provides business continuity to you as an organization with the ability to fail over to a second site when there is a hardware or software failure of your systems. After the crisis is resolved, you can shift your workload back to the original locations. These switches between primary and backup can also be automated if it happens more often. You can choose to fail over data, all your applications or virtual machine images. However, cloud recovery can take a significant amount of time if you have lots of data. You should determine which data/files are really crucial to recover so that it can be done in a short period of time.
