“Adding Windows To Go to the [disaster recovery plan] mix just seems like added complexity, unless it’s a USB stick in a glass box labeled, “In case of emergency, break glass.” — Gabe Knuth
Microsoft is suggesting several uses for this feature, one of which is disaster recovery for small business. The scenario goes something like this: there’s a fire that destroys the office but luckily, all the employees have Windows To Go configured USB drives so they can just just plug the drives into their home computers and voila — the company is back in business. Of course, this scenario assumes that employees can access everything they need from the cloud. That’s just a minor detail, of course. (NOT!)
One small step for Windows 8, one giant step for the cloud DR.
