CIO's Future of Work Summit (June 14-15)

In this submission, JetStream Software's President and Co-Founder Rich Petersen makes the case for why organizations should shift to disaster recovery as a cloud-based service right now.

With the increased pace of digital transformation, it's more important than ever to plan and prepare for disaster recovery and business continuity (DR/BC). At the same time, IT leaders are increasingly looking to major cloud providers to offer data storage and systems recovery environments for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

It's useful to consider why this might be the right time to shift to DRaaS in the cloud. With the advance of the software-defined data center (SDDC) over the past decade, most on-premises data centers have virtualized compute, storage and network functions. At the same time, VMware has developed partnerships with all the major public cloud providers as well as thousands of regional managed service providers (MSPs). So IT leaders running production workloads on VMware on-premises can partner with the cloud provider to ensure a comparable VMware environment will be available as a failover destination in the cloud.
