outages and how companies prepare for them are undergoing significant
changes. Here are some industry-watchers’ predictions for
More non-public cloud DR. Companies seeking to leverage financial and
operational benefits have (rightly) embraced cloud-based solutions. Many,
however, have miscalculated the total fees and costs of public-cloud DR. This
will lead to more businesses scaling back public-cloud BDR and shifting instead
to hybrid and private solutions.
AI. Analysts at ContinuityCentral.com say that, “in the coming year,
organizations can expect data protection solutions to go beyond real-time
insight and incorporate AI capabilities that can predict and avert unplanned
downtime from physical disasters before they happen.”
3) Less available talent. As cloud complexities increase, there
will be fewer workers who are skilled at monitoring, managing and recovering
data in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.
In response, business
leaders intent on adopting DR and other cloud-based solutions must either
step-up their talent search or enlist assistance from cloud
backup-and-disaster-recovery experts like TeamLogic IT.
