How do cloud service providers contribute to protecting the cloud?

Veeam has created a series of videos where Jason Buffington, vice president of Solutions Strategy, and Dave Russell, vice president of Enterprise Strategy, discuss key findings from Veeam’s Cloud Protection Trends 2021 report, where 1,550 data center professionals were surveyed regarding their cloud data protection activities.

In part one, we’ve talked about personas involved in protecting cloud workloads. In this second blog post, we focus on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and hybrid IT cloud workloads.

IaaS (Hybrid IT): ado​p​tion drivers, challenges, and strategies

Organizations have been using the cloud longer, and for more workloads than many people realize. In the first video we cover:

  • For which use cases do organizations use cloud-hosted infrastructure.
  • How long companies have been using the public cloud in production.
  • Where production workloads deployed in the cloud in the last year originated from, with most workloads not brought back from the cloud to the data center.

Using IaaS as a disaster recovery site strategies

In the second video we cover:

  • What cloud services contribute to an organization’s disaster recovery (DR) strategy.
  • For cloud-based DR, how operations are resumed, and what kind of failover/failback mechanisms are used.

Check out the last part of this three-part blog series.

About the report: In August 2021, Veeam published the research findings from an independent analyst survey of 1,550 unbiased IT decision makers involved in cloud-powered production IT, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and/or Containers.
