The cloud DR hype continues to gain steam, but it’s not necessarily the best fit for all systems. We will present case studies, tools, and a structured approach to effectively evaluate your options and communicate the results. We will discuss the cloud pay-per-use model, cost considerations for all options, and short-term versus long-term events. A hybrid solution may meet conflicting requirements and leverage the benefits of cloud where it makes sense but organizational constraints can also tip the balance.
