Clouds and colocation sites have completely changed the data center game. Today, there’s simply no good reason for organizations to build secondary data centers for disaster recovery (DR). As organizations increasingly embrace hybrid cloud, service providers have an opportunity to help identify and address companies’ individual needs with hybrid DR options.
With the traditional approach to disaster recovery, organizations maintain (and scale) a secondary data center to house critical applications, which can be costly and require a lot of upkeep. However, new technologies on the market today offer more efficient and cost-effective options. In this session, Laz Vekiarides, CTO and co-founder of ClearSky Data, will share his top tips for building a hybrid DR environment. Using real-life examples from MSPs, Laz will discuss how balancing a number of different services and investing in metro-based colocation partners can help provide customers with a holistic approach to DR and a more logical, secure path to the cloud.
