Most cloud service provider legal contracts state that they aren’t responsible for interruption or loss of service, and aren’t responsible for loss of business, revenue or profits as a result. When you move to the cloud, or as many organizations are doing today – to the multi-cloud, the truth is that it is YOUR organization who owns ultimate responsibility for ensuring that your business applications are protected against potentially costly cloud outages. We’ve seen some major cloud outages over the last year and these have cost businesses up to millions of dollars. A simple human error, a power outage or even a cyber-attack in the cloud means that you are powerless – you don’t control the infrastructure, you don’t control the services and you don’t even control the personnel. It’s outside of your purview but these can have disastrous implications for your business.
Imaging that your business applications are running in Cloud 1 and Cloud 1 goes down. You need a way to ensure that you can failback your applications to your data center, or even to another Cloud – Cloud 2. This mobility for applications is important especially in a multi-cloud scenario. Having a simple way to protected applications in the cloud and across multi-clouds can help maximize your cloud investments while reducing your business risk.
