How do you Recover Data From the Cloud?

An estimated 90% of organizations will use multiple cloud services and cloud platforms by 2020 (IDC Nordic). While enterprises generally feel comfortable about storing data, even business-critical data, in multi-cloud environments, many have not yet considered how to restore or disaster recover their enterprise and cloud-native applications.


Most SaaS or cloud providers include in their agreements a disclaimer stating that responsibility for protecting the customer’s data lies with the customer.


Yes, hyperscale public clouds like Azure, Oracle or AWS will protect and maybe even backup your data.


But in case of data loss caused by human error from your side, a malicious attack or other incidents, your recovery options are solely dependent on your own backup and restore precautions.


In other words, your business might run into trouble, should you ever need to recover your data from the cloud.
