As mobile and other technologies continue to expand faster than IT departments can keep up with them, the development of hybrid IT environments have become a reality for large enterprises and organizations worldwide. Almost every business is faced with the fact that it cannot move at the speed of IT evolution. Not only is not cost effective, but resources are not readily available, and there are uncertainties when migrating from technology to technology.
As this continues to evolve, IT departments increasingly will use disaster recovery (DR) as an entry point to the cloud. Preparing for a disaster requires solid planning and thorough tech evaluation. As IT teams go through the process of evaluating and adopting cloud for DR, many begin to see easy ways to extend the cloud for other uses, such as production and test and development.
Although there are numerous drivers in the cloud DR sector, cost savings and maximizing return on investment (ROI) are significant factors. Because DR is a service that customers hope they never have to use, they want the cost to be kept as low as possible. Nevertheless, CIOs and IT accept that the price of DR is easily more cost effective than not having a DR plan in place if disaster strikes.
As the cloud-based disaster recovery market grows, there will continue to be complex heterogeneous environments that have a growing mix of physical and virtual infrastructures that impact cloud DR. These environments are difficult to manage in production and even more so to ensure that they can be recovered.
Companies will continue to seek service providers that can deliver on the full promise of cloud-based disaster recovery, regardless of whether a natural disaster wipes out the primary systems permanently or a power shortage disables the system for just a few hours. Service providers must keep in mind the applications and challenges that are most important to customers in order to remain viable in the fast-growing cloud-based disaster recovery market.
Disaster Recovery Hits the Cloud, Finds Silver Lining examines the cloud-based disaster recovery market, analyzing the features that are most likely to be implemented over the next two years, as well as drivers expected in the market over the next two years. It discusses challenges in the industry and includes a comparative analysis of solutions available. Finally, it examines the geographic landscape of the market and details trends that are likely to occur in the industry over the next 18-24 months.
Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:
As shown in the following excerpt, cost will remain the overriding driver for cloud-based disaster recovery. The cloud provides an irresistible solution: an instant, cost-effective, worry-free DR site. Each aspect of the cloud saves on costs: a short planning and deployment cycle, no capital purchases and on-demand compute resources that only need to be paid for upon use.
