How do cloud-based disaster recovery solutions compare with traditional off-site disaster recovery solutions?
Cloud-based recovery solutions
Cloud-based disaster recovery solutions can reduce the complexity of recovery. The service provider owns the hardware required, so organizations no longer need to pay for hardware that sits idle. Because they don’t require infrastructure purchases or in-house specialized recovery knowledge, cloud-based solutions enable small and midsize businesses to achieve the same recovery times, recovery points and security levels as large enterprises.

Traditional off-site recovery solutions
Some organizations expect a traditional solution to offer them the greatest operational control and the most economic value. But traditional off-site disaster recovery can harbor hidden costs: expensive hardware sits idle when not being used for recovery; worse, it may be “borrowed” for other purposes, unavailable when disaster strikes. After a disruption, the hardware, operating systems, data and applications at the recovery site must be configured from the ground up to match the organization’s IT site—a process that can take days.
