Backup Myths and Assumptions That Lead To Trouble

Today, it's safe to presume that all IT professionals (and even some non-IT professionals) understand the importance of having a backup.

Next, we introduced Symmetry DevOps™ by PvDC, where we discussed all the benefits of why a cloud environment (hybrid or 100%) can not only be more efficient and cost productive, but it can be managed close to vest as well.

A few weeks ago, a customer went through a data loss event. When we hopped on a call to discuss the issue, they said “I guess now is a great time for us to see if our DR plan really works.” Though we can happily say they recovered their data easily, during an event is not the time to “see if it really works.”

Why Cloud?

It’s not whether if you “should” move to the cloud or “when” you move to the cloud, but WHY. A vast majority of enterprises are already moving to the cloud, but for smaller enterprise environments, or the SMB, the question of “why” is still being asked. Here is a great 90 second video from the experts at Zerto that discusses the 3 main advantages as to WHY business should take advantage of the cloud:
