Disaster Recovery in the Cloud
Continuity has changed, if not in meaning, then in method.
Once upon a time, computing was tangibly physical, and disaster recovery was primarily about protecting known assets that could be seen and touched. Whether on-site or in data centres, critical infrastructure was contained within a neat, tactile perimeter.
Today, the perimeter lies in tatters, or else stretched into an incomprehensible shape by a multitude of discrete cloud services, hosted on globally-dispersed infrastructure by an endless variety of providers.
This guide does not focus on service continuity or look at the methods to build resiliency into the design of cloud computing infrastructure; rather it focuses on disaster recovery and what can be done to recover from a ‘disaster’ when using cloud services.
