Pilot light disaster recovery is a perfect use case for the cloud. With cloud-based DR, companies avoid costly capital expenses and staffing costs are minimized as the responsibility for maintaining a dedicated disaster recovery site belongs to the cloud service provider. Monthly payments are based on the services used, making the 'pay as you go' model much easier to budget. More applications can be protected as a result. Companies also enjoy the ability to test more frequently and to scale up and down as services demand. For all of these reasons, CloudVelocity offers Pilot Light DR for AWS--automated cloud-based disaster recovery for multi-tier, physical and virtual production apps.
