Comments on A hidden benefit of cloud computing disaster recoveryA SearchCIO-Midmarket.com blog2013-04-02T15:16:26Zhttp://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/cio/a-hidden-benefit-of-cloud-computing-disaster-recovery/feed/atom/By: SLM791SLM791http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/cio/?p=568#comment-1212010-05-25T19:30:08Z2010-05-25T19:30:08ZI think what Mr. Pyle was simply stating is that you can have additional resources when necessary even though your using a small amount of resources consistently for replication of data and testing. With a ‘pay-as-you-use’ cloud DR model, you are in fact recovering from a disaster with current replicated data that resides in the cloud.

His comments relate to disaster avoidance not recovery. The strategy of continuity through redundancy or partial redundancy is old. The old problems still exist, cloud (internet) or otherwise, of data relevance due to update cycles and change control. Real disaster recovery solutions need to be tested periodically for applicability, rigor and volume (infinitely scalability is a notion). This benchmark or baseline should be adequate for insurance purposes.
