For more than a decade, enterprises have turned to secondary data centers to house critical applications that can be accessed in the event of an outage or disaster. However, this approach comes with never-ending headaches for already resource-strapped IT teams. It’s a struggle to keep up with the costly, ongoing maintenance that secondary data centers require – especially as budgets continue to shrink. We all know there must be a better way.
Today, thanks to the growing cloud adoption rate and increasing number of cloud-forward colocation providers, there is simply no good reason for any organization to build a secondary data center for DR purposes. It’s no secret the data center world is evolving and there are a number of more efficient and cost-effective options, far beyond disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).
So where do you begin?
The next installment in our weekly webinar series, “Get out of the box: what you’ll need to know next about storage,” will feature some of our top tips for building and maintaining a hybrid DR environment.
During this live webinar on Thursday, July 27 at 1 p.m. ET, ClearSky Data’s own Marc Keating, director of technology and alliance strategy, and Darren Miller, manager of engineering test and performance, will explore the death of the secondary data center and share best practices for leveraging new technologies for an optimal hybrid DR solution. Attendees will learn how to balance both on-prem and cloud services, as well as how investing in metro-based colocation partners can help organizations access their data anywhere, anytime.
