You recognize the advantages of cloud recovery. You’re ready to get started. But before you jump in, there are a number of questions you should ask and changes you should prepare for.

What are the cost implications, and what level of performance will you get? Will transitioning to a cloud-based recovery solution speed up your recovery? Should you do it yourself or partner with a provider? Should you recover in a service provider’s environment or to the public cloud? What about your work loads running in a public cloud?

In this presentation, we’ll take an in-depth look at these and other key factors to consider when adopting a cloud recovery strategy.
