When it comes to backup, the architecture you deploy should be a tool you use to achieve your recovery objectives. The cloud can help you meet your objectives, but it is a precision tool that fits some use cases far better than others.

  • Bandwidth requirements can make the cloud unsuitable for extremely large data sets.
  • The speed of data transmission may also make the cloud an unattractive option for data that requires a highly aggressive recovery time objective.
  • The cloud makes more sense for replicating small, infrequent, or incremental backups that do not have rigorous recovery requirements, or for organizations who want to greatly simplify hands-on backup management of their present strategy.

Evaluate the business case for cloud backup and make an informed decision; then assess opportunities and readiness for your organization.
