Application prioritization is traditionally necessary to determine which applications get first access to available CPU cycles during the recovery process. In the cloud, resources are infinitely available, but you must still prioritize the order of application deployment to ensure the most critical systems are up and running first.

In the wake of the increasing threats to the data center via cybercrime and the recent natural disasters occurring across the globe, AFCOM's Data Center Institute believes it is time to review the adequacy of existing data center business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

They maintain that the cloud offers new and dynamic approaches to the art of disaster recovery. It builds upon the techniques developed with load balancing, virtualization and geographical separation of assets. If done right, the cloud can drive multi-purpose utilization of assets, which makes disaster recovery more affordable and can provide significant ROI.

Leveraging the cloud for use in a disaster will require pre-planning and monitoring of the resources available in the cloud to ensure that what‘s needed is there when it is needed. This slideshow features eight key steps, identified by AFCOM, for taking advantage of the cloud for disaster recovery.
