DCIG Report – Choosing the Best Cloud Storage for Data Protection
Organizations no longer discuss if they will use the cloud. Rather, they may determine how many clouds they will use. As they do, many will minimally use cloud storage as a target for their backup data for disaster recovery and long-term archiving needs.
Cloud storage affords them access to a virtually unlimited pool of storage capacity for their backup data. This eliminates the effort, overhead, and cost of implementing and managing on-premises storage. Further, enterprise backup solutions make implementing and adopting cloud storage from multiple providers almost a wizard-like experience.
This paper reviews a wide range of cloud storage options and discusses best practices and important considerations.
