The Industry Perspectives channel at Data Center Knowledge highlights thought leadership in the data center arena, providing industry professionals with the opportunity to share their insight and expertise. Here’s a recap of this week’s Perspectives:
Cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service Options – An increasingly popular option is to put both primary production and disaster recovery instances into the cloud and have both handled by a managed service provider.

Redesigning the Data Backup Plan – Backup is now required to do more than just “back up.” A data backup plan must provide reliability, recoverability and value like never before, especially in light of new e-discovery requirements, server virtualization and tighter budgets. Backup is no longer just an IT function; it involves every department and should be a corporate-wide effort.
