Hybrid Environments Require Cloud DR

One of the most attractive use cases for VMware was disaster recovery, and the availability of cloud infrastructure enhances this use case. That’s the topic of this episode of the On-Premise IT podcast, sponsored by Pure Storage. Cody Hosterman, Calvin Hendryx-Parker, Ned Bellavance, and Stephen Foskett discuss the use case for disaster recovery in the cloud. Although each cloud platform has different virtual machine capabilities, most now have a storage platform like Pure Storage Cloud Block Store, which is available in AWS and Azure. In addition to the pay-as-you-go aspect, the consistency of operations when using a compatible storage solution between the datacenter and the cloud is extremely compelling. Once data is in the cloud it opens the door to cloud-native applications and modernizing the enterprise as a whole.
