Emerging Technologies in DR and the Cloud
- Biff L. Myre, Director, Onx

Virtualization and cloud-enabled solutions offer new possibilities which are transforming and optimizing Data Protection and Disaster Recovery strategies. Virtualization-based technologies are extending high availability and local resiliency to offsite Disaster Recovery fail- and switch-over capabilities (and testing) into "burstable" cloud infrastructure. Traditional backup and archive solutions are integrating into cloud architectures to enable data protection or archiving to the cloud as another option for efficient offsite data protection. New options and capabilities on the availability continuum are allowing organizations to continue to optimize their Data Protection and Recovery Strategies to their business' specific needs - achieving gains in capabilities without the huge capital expenses they once were. Examples of how companies are transforming and optimizing their Data Protection and Disaster Recovery strategies by leveraging these new capabilities and cloud-enabled solutions will be discussed.
