Cloud technology has made remarkable progress in penetrating IT organizations across the globe. In many cases, cloud technology introduces opportunities to optimize utilization and perhaps even consolidate functions and operations. However, most cloud implementations – especially private cloud deployments within the firewall – mask and manage complexity rather than eliminating them. This carries significant ramifications for the Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity operations. In this edition of 1on1 with BizTechReports, we explore how organizations should approach BC/DR in the era of the Cloud.
