Computer Weekly article on cloud based disaster recovery

For Computer Weekly’s Briefing series I’m looking at cloud based DR.

I’ve set out what the article aims to cover below. I welcome input from vendors and others in the industry, but please contact me by email no later than 1700 London time, Thursday 25 January. I will then respond with any questions or to set up interviews.

What is cloud DR?

How does it work?

Do different product/services work differently?

Is there a DIY cloud option?

What are the key limitations to cloud DR services?

What use cases/workloads/customers is cloud DR best suited to, and not at all suited to?

When would it be better to keep DR in-house?

Who are the key cloud DR providers?

There is scope for us to list the Main providers with a short, factual summary of their offering.
