Each Wednesday in June, I’ll be exploring an aspect of this through a series of videos and blogs – based on ESG’s Data Protection Cloud Strategies research report.
Part 1 – WHY use clouds as part of your data protection strategy … June 7
Part 2 – WHICH clouds to use within your data protection strategy … June 14
Part 3 – HOW to ensure security when using clouds within your data protection strategy … June 21
Part 4 – WHAT products or services might you consider when using clouds within your data protection strategy … June 28
Last week, we covered why the cloud should be part of most data protection strategies, with the recognition of the perception of economic benefits (which can vary widely from service to service) to the agility benefits (which are indisputable). In this installment, let’s discuss WHICH cloud services you should consider, including:
STaaS/dp – cloud-based storage-as-a-service, augmenting on-premises backup software or hardware
BaaS – Backup-as-a-service
DRaaS – Disaster Recovery-as-a-service
IaaS/SaaS – Production infrastructure (IaaS) or software (SaaS), which requires data protection too
To make this easier, this video offers a flowchart to discern “What are you solving for?” and then makes some suggestions of service(s) to consider:
Please check back next Wednesday for part 3 on HOW to ensure security when using clouds within your data protection strategy.
As always, thanks for watching.
