Cloud disaster recovery guidance available

Databarracks and NCC have published ‘Guidelines for Disaster Recovery in the Cloud.’

Written by Oscar Arean, Technical Operations Manager, and Mark Thomas, Solutions Architect, from Databarracks, the paper has been produced to provide simple guidance on how businesses should approach disaster recovery when using cloud services.

The guidance examines the disaster recovery options available for the various different types of cloud deployments a modern business is likely to use.

“Disaster recovery in the cloud isn’t one thing, but many. In the past, your entire infrastructure was in one place, so you needed to prepare a plan for the loss of those systems or that site. Today, businesses will often be using several different cloud services. This reduces your chance of losing everything at once, but it does add an extra layer of complexity into your DR plans” said Oscar Arean.

Keith Vooght, director for the NCC commented: “DR in the cloud, is an emerging area of concern for IT professionals and Databarracks' authors, Oscar Arean and Mark Thomas, have done an excellent job of providing authoritative and succinct advice."
