How The Right Cloud Backup Solution Enables Faster Disaster Recovery

feature-How-The-Right-Cloud-Backup-Solution-Enables-Faster-Disaster-Recovery

Ransomware attacks, malware, human error, and cloud outages are just a few of the threats that can instantly take an organization offline—thereby risking the integrity and availability of its data.

Disaster recovery is the collective response to such events. Part of this response includes the restoring of the data and applications needed to maintain business continuity. When planned and executed successfully, a disaster recovery plan can minimize or fully avoid downtime that would threaten permanent data loss, disabling internal processes, and the disruption of customers and end users. 

During a disaster event and subsequent recovery, speed is of the utmost importance—just a few minutes can be the difference between an organization’s vital infrastructure going offline or remaining operational with little to no effect on processes and end users.

Key Requirements for Faster Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

With many of today’s organizations now hosting their applications and workloads in the cloud, most have also turned to cloud native backup solutions to protect their data—leaving legacy solutions like physical, on-premises backup in the past. If an incident occurs that leads to data being lost, corrupted, or compromised, the cloud backup solution can initiate data recovery and restore the most recent copy of the data from any location.

However, not all cloud backup solutions are the same in terms of features and capabilities. Using a cloud backup solution does not automatically guarantee the data will be safe, uncorrupted, or restorable at a speed that ensures business continuity. 

Here is the truth: your organization’s disaster recovery abilities are only as good as the tools it uses. For a cloud backup solution to facilitate fast and effective IT disaster recovery, it must be able to:

  • Back up and store data efficiently
  • Ensure the security of the backups from threats like ransomware and malware by air-gapping them
  • Rapidly restore mission-critical data and workloads required for business continuity


You need a way to not only keep the backup data secured from threats, you also need a way to quickly restore the specific data required to keep your operations going rather than waiting on all the data to be restored. Here’s how Clumio addresses these needs directly.

Three Cloud Disaster Recovery Best Practices

Cloud-based disaster recovery is now the best choice for any entity that hosts its data and workloads in the cloud. Discover three best practices to ensure an optimal disaster recovery plan that fully leverages what the cloud offers. 

Leveraging Cloud Backup in an IT Disaster Recovery Plan

A specific IT disaster recovery plan is essential for organizations wishing to ensure the viability and functionality of mission-critical IT infrastructure during a disaster event. Learn about the crucial role cloud backup plays in a robust IT disaster recovery plan. 

Examining the Role of Cloud Backup in a Disaster Recovery Plan Template

Disaster recovery is indeed a complex process, which is why a disaster recovery plan template can help in the creation of a plan that doesn’t leave anything out. Find out why cloud backup should be at the heart of every disaster recovery plan—and the template used to create one.

Can a Disaster Recovery Plan Protect Against the Effects of Ransomware Attacks?

Ransomware is just one of many potential threats that can risk the integrity of an organization’s data at a moment’s notice, creating a domino effect that can result in costly downtime and disruption to both internal processes and end users. Fortunately, an effective disaster recovery plan can mitigate—or even avoid—the potentially devastating effects of a ransomware attack.
