Cloud Backup & Disaster Recovery

Cloud Backup & Disaster Recovery

For businesses that are starting to use the cloud as an extension of their own IT environment, backup and disaster recovery are great applications for the cloud and cloud-based services. Outsourcing these tasks can free up IT resources to work on more strategic business initiatives, and the SLAs associated with backup and DR are typically less stringent than primary applications.

And by using new technologies like variable-length deduplication, companies are able to reduce cloud storage and bandwidth costs substantially, making the cloud cost-effective by dramatically reducing the amount of data going to the cloud.
