The SMB’s Guide to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for Azure
There are many excellent reasons for businesses who want to take advantage of the cloud to choose Microsoft Azure, starting with the familiarity that comes with Microsoft software but also including the company’s much-expanded support for open source technologies. For small to midsize businesses seeking to grow on top of Microsoft’s scalable data center network, Azure is a great choice.
However, we recommend you take a few precautions to protect data in Azure against cybersecurity threats and cloud outages. Our eBook, the SMB’s Guide to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for Azure, explains:
- The “shared responsibility model” in Microsoft’s contract, and the responsibility you retain for protecting your data and applications.
- The risk of depending on a single-cloud solution, where data may be backed up but only within Azure.
- Why not all backups are created equal, for example if they only occur on a daily basis or don’t provide some means of verifying the integrity of the data.
The risks of the cloud are no reason not to take advantage of the strengths of the crowd. Read the SMB’s Guide to Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for Azure. Or contact us today with your questions.
