Azure Backup & Recovery Best Practises

“Cloud computing is a no-brainer for any start-up because it allows you to test your business plan very quickly for little money. Every start-up, or even a division within a company that has an idea for something new, should be figuring out how to use cloud computing in its plan.”  

                                                                                                         –Brad Jefferson, Animoto CEO. 2009. 

As time moves forward with new technologies and their continuous need for improvement, enterprises have to transform and advance their business operations with proper protection of their information data. On-premises are proven to be an insufficient and expensive way of storing data, whereas cloud computing offers a replicated environment for storing data other than its original storing place. Business continuity can only be possible when there are no disruptions in data loss. For that matter, disaster recovery strategy is a critical component to bring the goal to life. Cloud solutions offer Azure Backup for leading services to provide space, scalability, and redundancy.
