The emergence of the cloud is leading to more and more companies shifting their IT workloads and associated data into Cloud Infrastructures on an on-demand and pay as you go basis.
Depending on the Cloud Providers, this can result in key data and applications being housed in secure remote locations. This is the standard first step in provisioning a cloud capability and Cloud DR can be a natural extension to existing Cloud Based Services.
In addition, it can be provided without the high ongoing costs of permanent redundant infrastructures with the ability to be spun up at DR Invocation or during periodic tests for compliance and risk reduction purposes.
