Backup & archiving
The Public Cloud is a good disaster recovery location for an on-premises infrastructure. Backups are copied from the on-premise server to the cloud, and storage of non-system-critical data and workloads can be easily outsourced to the cost-optimised Public Cloud.
The rapid recovery of business-critical applications is an essential part of a business continuity strategy. If your on-premise IT infrastructure fails, your IT applications will continue to operate seamlessly in the cloud. A hybrid cloud disaster recovery solution provides flexibility, greater stability and an improved user experience.
Cloud bursting is a useful response to a sudden increase in demand for IT resources: it involves instantly moving an application that is running in a private cloud or data centre to a public cloud. It offers the advantage of managing capacity peaks cost effectively through the temporary use of Public Cloud resources (pay as you use).
