DRaaS Doesn't Have to Break the Bank — Reserved Storage and Burst Compute

Pete Benoit

For veterans of the IT services industry, DR has always been a popular topic of conversation with potential clients. Those that have been around long enough will certainly remember how many of those conversations progressed.

Typically, it went something like this.

Potential Client: We’ve determined that our current IT infrastructure DR plan puts our business at risk and we are interviewing service providers to assess potential solutions.

IT Services Vendor: What are your infrastructure RPO and RTO targets?

Potential Client: Our CIO wants us to maintain a RPO/RTO of 4 hours or less.

Beyond Disasters — Do More with DR

Jason Clark

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, after unprecedented amounts of flooding have finally begun to recede from the Houston area, I wanted to avoid focusing on the disastrous event itself. It would be doing those impacted by the storm a disservice to write a commentary on protecting data, after a time where protecting loved ones was significantly more important. Instead, I wanted to share other reasons why it would be beneficial to have a solid DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) plan in place.

Richard Stinton

Shared Responsibilities for Cloud Computing: Who Does What in the Cloud? Part One

Richard Stinton

There have been several articles published recently around the internet media discussing the shared responsibilities of cloud service providers (CSPs) and customers when it comes to cloud computing.

The lure and mystique of cloud computing sometimes gives customers a false sense of security (no pun intended) that the cloud will auto-magically provide new levels of security for their applications, without them even having to think about it. However, the cynics out there will also remind us that the cloud is just ‘someone else’s computer’ and to a certain extent, that is true.
