Cloud backup, recovery and restore (BURR) solutions are increasingly becoming recognized as a secure, cost-effective and reliable approach to protecting the rising tide of corporate data in both data centers and remote business locations. While the advantages of cloud backup have been validated in hundreds of thousands of business installations, switching to a cloud-based backup system is a significant decision that requires a clear understanding of how it will integrate into the organization’s IT environment.

This new Asigra guide to cloud backup addresses the most common questions that companies are asking about cloud backup and will help determine what role a cloud backup, recovery and restore system can have within the business. Some of the topics covered in the guide include: 

·       Public, private and hybrid cloud backup and which approach is best suited for differing business environments.

·       Steps required to implement a cloud backup solution.

·       How data recovery typically operates within a cloud model.

·       How availability requirements are met when company data is stored offsite in a cloud.

·       How cloud backup systems ensure data integrity while data is being transferred over the wide area network (WAN).

·       The requirements for reliable cloud backup services.

·       IT resource requirements for the setup and maintenance of a cloud backup solution.

·       The myths and realities of cloud backup subscription fees.

·       How data is stored in a business-class cloud backup environment.

·       High-speed recovery which is critical when time is of the essence and a production data center becomes unavailable.

Given the reliability, cost savings and ease of operation associated with cloud backup, many companies are now moving to the cloud. Cloud backup allows companies to leverage existing infrastructure, significantly reducing the capital costs associated with data protection. Cloud-based backup is a transparent approach to data protection that allows users to set their backup policies once and let the solution do the rest, slashing management resources and the risk of human error associated with alternative approaches. Cloud backup also solves the shortcomings of tape-based backup, reducing the expense, management headaches and security concerns of lost tapes. Businesses also have greater control of the data recovery times which are set in the service level agreement (SLA) between the customer and cloud backup service provider. 

The new guide to cloud backup provides businesses with greater insight into this modern approach to recovering information assets when data loss occurs. It also examines what a switch to cloud backup, recovery and restore solution involves from the perspective of management time, IT resources and costs. The guide is available immediately and interested parties can download this resource without obligation at
