Historically, disaster recovery preparedness required substantial time and financial investment. For many IT professionals, disaster recovery (DR) was out of reach; for others, it was a burdensome task that often seemed like an expensive insurance policy.
Today, cloud-based DR is poised to challenge legacy approaches and offer IT professionals a more flexible, cost-effective alternative. Instead of having enterprises buy resources in case of a disaster, cloud computing and its pay-per-use pricing model allows them to pay for long-term data storage while paying for servers only if they have a need to spin them up for testing or in the event of a disaster.
This provides a significant cost reduction and removes several barriers to entry for many firms looking for faster recovery than what they can receive from tape.
