Leveraging Purpose Built Cloud Service Provider for Backup and Disaster Recovery

Backup and disaster recovery top the list of applications that companies hope to migrate to the cloud. Storing backup data offsite, retaining it for long-term, scaling up, and testing and performing reliable disaster recoveries make the cloud ideally suited for these type of applications.

Companies migrating to the cloud first think general purpose cloud service providers (CSP) such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS or Google Cloud as the best platforms to deliver backup and recovery services. However, propose-built CSPs providing disaster recovery services are best positioned to deliver on these services. The purpose built backup and disaster recovery cloud service providers deliver these services at lower costs and more effectively and quickly than Azure, AWS and Google Cloud with much less effort.

Purpose built CSPs tune their cloud operations specifically for cloud based disaster recovery and backup. This approach shortens the learning curve for companies adopting a cloud-based solution for the first time and takes much of the risk out of cloud adoption.
