White paper: Top 5 backup and DRAAS considerations to strengthen your multi-cloud strategy
Enterprise IT is embracing multi-cloud as the go-to model for cloud deployments. While this trend gives organisations more flexibility overall, it puts added pressure on IT to manage backup and recovery in a more complex environment. By leveraging a single platform for cloud backup and disaster recovery as a service (DRAAS), IT can simplify management and ensure availability across every cloud and any application. Here's how:
By 2019, nearly 81% of enterprises are adopting a multi-cloud strategy.1 The shift to multi-cloud is a relatively recent phenomenon that increases complexity for a variety of important IT functions. One of these is backup and disaster recovery, particularly crucial at a time when enterprises are dealing with massive data growth, digital transformation, the Internet of things (IOT) and other initiatives that require always-on availability.
Simply put, as you use more clouds, it becomes more difficult to manage backup and recovery and ensure availability for business-critical applications. As far as multi-cloud is concerned, there's no going back. So, going forward, you need solutions that let you consolidate management of multi-cloud availability into a single platform for all of your needs, including on-premises infrastructure and any public cloud platform you choose.
With the right solution, you can lower costs and reduce complexity by leveraging multiple service offerings, including cloud backup, DRAAS, infrastructure as a service (IAAS) and SAAS data protection, as well as cross-cloud data protection. This will empower you to manage and ensure business continuity to multiple clouds; from multiple clouds, and within multiple clouds.
These are the top five factors to consider in choosing the right cloud backup and DRAAS solution for your multi-cloud strategy.
