Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has become part of the mainstream compute infrastructure for both small and large businesses. But when public cloud services fail, businesses can find themselves in a “disaster recovery” scenario just as they would if they had a disruption in their own datacenter.
Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are increasingly migrating their IT infrastructure from an on-premises model to public cloud platforms to capitalise on the cloud’s greater scale and flexibility. For managed service providers (MSPs), this means building a cloud practice is crucial for being able to fully support their clients’ needs.
Charles Love, Director of Service Operations at ShowTech Solutions, a Florida-based MSP, utilizes SaaS Defense to secure the changing business landscape. As the transition to remote work continues to become a more permanent move for companies, security solutions are now dependent on the data of previously known threats and how those operate to help prevent new threats.
There was a time when taking a backup and ensuring it existed in another physical location was considered best practice. But this is no longer the case. Rather than using on prem for backup, more managed service providers (MSPs) are looking to the cloud to save clients’ time. For those companies still doing a backup and sending it elsewhere, having a true cloud failover should be a consideration because having it gives access to data within 24 hours in the event of a system failure.
