In episode 40 of the Cybersecurity Minute, Robert Wood discusses how multi-cloud deployment patterns support backups and service restoration.
00:10 — Backups are normally everyone’s favorite topic — until an outage or failure strikes. Backup failures happen for many reasons, such as ransomware, infrastructure failure, or services collapsing for any reason.
00:26 — The business likely doesn’t care who or what is to blame for the failure. It just wants its services back online.
00:40 — Business continuity plans and disaster recovery plans are in place to support backup failures.
00:47 — Organizations will find themselves in a tough place if backups and production workloads are located in the same place. Whatever caused a backup failure in the first place is likely to impact production workloads, too.
01:07 — Situations like this represent a great opportunity to explore multi-cloud deployment patterns for service environments, as they can support backups and service restoration. Multi-cloud deployment is a constrained, focused way to solve the problem of backup failures while adding resilience to services.
