Backup recovery and disaster recovery in one:
The cloud comes as a highly available off-site backup, as well as a disaster recovery solution. This means that your productive systems are secured and backups of your relevant data are enabled. So you can boot systems and data directly in the cloud in cases of emergency.
It doesn’t matter whether the complete failure of your IT infrastructure was caused by a flood, storm or other natural disaster, whether just individual components broke down on short notice, the cloud solution will always step in to prevent painfully expensive downtime.
You don’t have to make off-the-peg emergency plans. An emergency datacenter in the cloud lets you activate and disable resources to suit your budget and security requirements, thus creating an individually tailored performance. This scalability is a clear benefit compared to external solutions.
Cost-efficient due to metered services:
In the cloud, you only pay for what you actually use. Say the disaster doesn’t happen at all and the computing capacities are not needed, you will only be required to pay minimal costs for data backup. That means that a backup and disaster recovery solution in the cloud is more cost-efficient than a local emergency data center.
