CBR Online posted a very informative article profiling a prominent Cloud services provider that provides insight into what happens behind closed doors with IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) options.
The obvious advantages are prevalent– minimal downtime and a focus on retaining critical data pertinent to your every functions. Interesting to note is how SoftLayer, the provider, leaves security up to the client after offering an array of security options.
We’ve chosen to profile this article to bring attention to the necessity of the hybrid cloud– because at this stage in Cloud services development(and any other data solution for that matter), nothing is 100%, and contigency plans make the difference between continued success and the possibility of losing your entire business due to not having a layered disaster recovery intiative.
Please take the time to peruse this article and think about its applications regarding your current setup. Questions and comments are welcome!
