The Five Myths of Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery
A recent study by the Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council highlighted a disturbing fact: three out of four companies
worldwide are failing in terms of disaster readiness. The impact IT interruptions have range from thousands of dollars to
millions of dollars.
No wonder the “cloud” is having such an attraction and why businesses are rethinking their recovery strategies.
However, what is preventing companies from fully adopting cloud solutions for disaster recovery? We believe that there
are five myths surrounding cloud-based recovery services that have to be dispelled.
- Cloud Solutions Are for Disaster Scenarios
- Cloud Storage and Cloud Disaster Recovery Are Similar
- Cloud Solutions Are Not Secure
- You Can Do It Yourself
- All Cloud Providers Are the Same
Not all cloud providers are created equal. Do your research and decide on what is important to you, then find a provider
that meets your needs.
These are the top five myths — it’s now in your hands to make the decision that’s best for your company and needs. No
matter what you choose, the least you can do is do something to protect you and your business.
