Virtualizing disaster recovery using cloud computing
"We are in an always-on world, where the flow of information and commerce in this global business environment never stops. Is your business thinking about application continuity or dealing with occasional disasters? Does your disaster recovery solution include seamless failover and fallback? A cloud-based business resilience approach can help address your demands and budget requirements.
This IBM whitepaper discusses traditional approaches to disaster recovery and describes how organisations can use cloud computing to help plan for both the mundane interruptions to service, from cut power lines, server hardware failures and security breaches, as well as more-infrequent disasters. The paper provides key considerations when planning for the transition to cloud-based business resilience and in selecting your cloud partner."
