Transitioning to the Cloud? Redundancy is now even more important!
If it wasn’t clear before the 2012 “Acts of God”, it should be clear now that access to the Cloud is not always a given. Realization: Cloud Computing has the same liabilities that non-Cloud systems have and it’s critical to have a solution in place in case of an entire system failure.
Technology Management Corporation’s CEO (TMC), Cheryl O’Brien explains: “The Cloud is an incredible advancement that provides operational continuity. However, redundancy has to be addressed before you can sleep peacefully through the night. Cloud failure is possible and you plan and build around that. Internet bandwidth has to be part of the consideration.”
Automation of your disaster recovery plan is a key ingredient. Fortunately the cost to implement such a plan is lower than in the past.
