The adoption of cloud services is now well underway – a recent ESG study found that 74% of IT departments will increase spending on public cloud computing services this year, while 63% plan to increase spending on server virtualization software or begin to build out a private cloud on top of their existing virtualized infrastructure.
And, as many have already realized, one of the most expedient ways to realize the economic benefits of cloud storage is to integrate your current backup or DR operations with a cloud backup service – as it makes for a practical “entry point” to cloud storage services.
In the cover story of the April 2012 issue of Storage magazine, Lauren Whitehouse outlines best practices for cloud backup integration and the various methods for doing so. Also included in this issue are articles regarding virtual server management, storage for big data, the rising cost of disk drives and more.
