Larger corporations have the financial resources and staff to reduce downtime, but the statistics for small to medium sized businesses are not as encouraging.

Are You Utilizing the Cloud to its Full Potential?

But ironically, the cloud offers a far more simplistic storage solution than previous methods. The need for cloud services is on the rise, with Gartner predicting “IaaS will grow 36.8% this year and reach $34.6 billion."

Many people believe that your data floats into cyberspace where it hangs out until you need it again. Hollywood has also created this unrealistic myth that your data is easily available to hackers.

The truth is, the cloud has a physical location and, in this case, it’s located in our data centre. Think of the cloud as a safety deposit box and the data center as the bank. You store all your valuable data in our facility, taking advantage of the security and maintenance perks.

While this was a small setback in my research, I now know that Replication gives businesses and networks a cloud-based replica of your environment. This replica allows for easy access to a recent backup of a singular virtual machine, a set of VM’s (Virtual Machines) or even an entire network, along with the ability to switch over to said replica should anything go wrong with your own environment.
