Disaster Recovery in Clouds
Cloud computing has been a new buzzword of today's most enticing technology areas due to its cost-efficiency and flexibility. It offers mainframe or better infrastructure through a small set of services delivered globally over the Internet. As per one of the estimates from Gartner, by year 2012, 20% of enterprise market e-mail seats will be delivered via Cloud. Many businesses rely on Disaster Recovery (DR) services to prevent either manmade or natural disasters from causing expensive service disruptions. Unfortunately, current DR services come either at very high cost, or with only weak guarantees about the amount of data lost or time required to restart operation after a failure.
