Backup and Disaster Recovery

According to Spiceworks report,  15% of the cloud budget is allocated to Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions, which is the highest budget allocation, followed by email hosting and productivity tools. This huge percentage impacts the shared responsibility model that public cloud providers operate on. Public cloud providers, like as AWS (Amazon Web Services ), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud are responsible for the availability of Backup and DR solutions and security of the infrastructure, while the users are in charge for their data protection and compliance.

Cloud Security

As we see the rise in technology, security is obviously another serious consideration. With the introduction of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) security concerns have risen much higher and are the essential thing to look after.

Therefore, GDPR will be an important thing in 2019 and the organization must ensure that their data practices are both safe and compliant.
