ChalkTalk Video: Best Next Steps for Hybrid Cloud

The first step to the cloud, for most organizations, is backup. They use the cloud as either the primary or secondary backup target, essentially leverage cloud storage as a giant data dumping ground. But this use case totally ignores something that cloud providers are better at delivering – cloud compute. Join Storage Switzerland and Zerto as we discuss the best next step for hybrid cloud. Leveraging the cloud as a next generation disaster recovery site.

Replication is the key ingredient of a hybrid cloud disaster recovery strategy. If the replication is software-based, then the organization is able to use the same software for all of its storage hardware. It also activates hybrid cloud capabilities, enabling the organization to replicate data on-premises to their own secondary location, to a managed service provider or to a public cloud provider. That capability allows the organization to move applications to different clouds based on availability or based on best fit for the application.
