In the past, disaster recovery plans were time consuming to create and expensive to execute. Adding to the financial sting, traditional Disaster Recovery also meant a lot of wasted server and network infrastructure resources sitting idle until needed. By providing rapid access to dynamically scalable and virtualized IT resources, companies can be more responsive to potential disruptions and data loss. Cloud computing can provide a higher-quality, more efficient infrastructure while simultaneously providing significant cost savings. Whether your existing production infrastructure is physical, virtual or in the cloud today, a cloud solution could be an excellent way to execute your organization’s disaster recovery requirements. Thanks to the advent of cloud computing, there’s a whole new platform for disaster recovery.
