Why Setup DR/BC in the Cloud?
Once you have decided in principle to have a robust DR and BC plan in place, the next vital question to ask yourself is, where to put this mechanism in place. Although setting up a dedicated disaster recovery site on premise is an option, but it is a very costly one in terms of financial, technical and IT resources.
Secondly, why add another layer of complication to your existing IT infrastructure once you have a highly robust DR and BC platform in the form of the Cloud. You don’t have to setup another dedicated disaster recovery site and then maintain it indefinitely due to a cloud disaster recovery plan in place.
This requirement can be adequately fulfilled by a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud. Over the cloud, you don’t have to bear any capital expenditure (CapEx) to attain DR and BC. Instead, the costing model is mostly based on the level of cloud resources you end up utilizing, making it a great option.

Post Pandemic DR and BC
A factor that has greatly impacted the DR and BC landscape lately is the Covid-19 pandemic. This crisis has exposed the inadequacy of a lot of non-cloud recovery mechanisms established on site. Currently, there is a serious trend of taking DR and BC to the Cloud, right where it actually belongs.
In the year 2021, it is expected that nearly 40-50% of enterprises will migrate towards cloud disaster recovery. The situation these days is rapidly evolving and by the time we reach the end of this year, cloud powered DR and BC may well exceed the above percentage.
Due to the multitude of DR and BC benefits you enjoy over the Cloud, more enterprises than ever are taking it to the cloud. What’s more important is to choose the right CSP that not only takes care of your existing needs, but also the future ones.
