In the last few years, businesses have changed the way they protect data.
Studies show they’re abandoning traditional backup and recovery in favor of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).1 With DRaaS, businesses enjoy the luxury of keeping a replica of their data hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to in an emergency—without bearing any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is the responsibility of the provider. Gartner predicts that global DRaaS revenue will reach $3.4 billion by 2019. The firm cited several reasons for the shift:

Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform featuring powerful on-demand infrastructure and solutions for building and deploying applications workloads as well as a wide variety of IT and application services. You can use Azure as a public cloud provider and as a hybrid extension to existing on-premises infrastructure. Organizations that use Microsoft solutions on-premises are able to extend their infrastructure and operational processes to Azure.
With the growing popularity of Azure, today’s systems administrators need to acquire and strengthen their skills on this fast-growing public cloud platform. In this guide we explore the Azure public cloud platform with a focus on the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) features. We cover general architectural features of the Azure cloud including geographic regions, availability zones, and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) attached to the core Azure IaaS infrastructure.

Most organizations today understand that a disaster recovery (DR) plan is essential to their continued survival should a natural disaster occur. But implementing a DR plan entails substantial time, effort and cost - not to mention significant investment in developing new areas of technical expertise within the organization. As a result, many organizations are turning to disaster recovery service providers (DRSPs) to offload their disaster recovery operations.

Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on.
As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid
vendor lock-in—having only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on
The implications of getting your next generation data center strategy wrong can be fatal for a cloud and hosting business. The Fueled by NetApp Consulting team has seen a trend with service providers testing the waters with many different go-to-market strategies due to these high stakes.
Don't ignore DDoS; instead, take preventive action. With that in mind, IDC believes that hybrid defense scenarios (on-premises equipment married with cloud services) will continue to grow as organizations seek to parry advanced application and large-scale volumetric attacks and as solution providers and product vendors work to deliver joint solutions.
In recent years, the legal marketplace has seen an influx of new start-ups and new entrants looking to challenge the long-standing service model offered by law firms to their clients. Traditionally, clients looked to their law firms to provide a full range of legal and legal-related services, i.e., to handle every aspect of a matter, even including those activities that did not involve the direct provision of legal services. Today, by contrast, consumers of legal services find themselves the beneficiaries of a new and growing number of nontraditional service providers that are changing the way legal work is getting done.
These alternative providers comprise a new sector of the legal market, one that is emerging and evolving rapidly, but is still very much in its infancy.
