The Silver Lining of Cloud Computing: Data Protector for Cloud Workloads

by   in Portfolio

The past few years have been nothing short of bizarre, unorthodox, unconventional, strange – okay, you get it. Amidst the changing times, one theme has been ever-present in organizations. Growth.

Grow the customer base, grow the revenue, and especially, grow the data. We can all agree data is worth its weight in gold when properly used, but on the other side of the data coin, cybercriminals have the same growth mentality. With a rise in data comes a rise in cybercrime. According to an IDC survey, 79% of companies have experienced at least one cloud data breach in the past 18 months alone.  

Cybercrime aside, disaster can strike at any time. With data as an asset, are you ready for a disaster? Do you have the infrastructure to not only get the applications back up and running in a timely manner, but restore any data you might have lost?

As cloud computing presents a host of benefits, it can quickly turn into a darkening storm cloud without the proper safety nets in place. However, there’s a silver lining to this data storm cloud.
