Disaster recovery to the cloud

Cloud-based Disaster Recovery (DR) can be an attractive alternative for companies looking to closely manage their IT resources. The usage-based cost of cloud services – in which secondary infrastructure is parked and idling most of the time – makes it very suitable for DR. It minimizes the need for additional IT resources, infrastructure, and dedicated data center space, helping reduce both capex and opex costs. This makes it easier for many organizations to be more aggressive in their DR planning, and facilitates the kind of DR testing that can make the difference between success and failure for your DR strategy. Commvault’s high level of integration with major cloud platforms enables greater cross-cloud management and portability. You can move data seamlessly and easily into and across clouds, and even back-up your data, applications and VMs in one format and then recover them in another — regardless of which format you select.
