The latest pandemic has forced major change across many organizations proving that organizations can complete digital transformations in months, not years. Unfortunately, many corporations still have not completed their digital transformation, which could lead to dire implications if they do not have a disaster recovery or business continuity plan. The current pandemic has left many organizations aware that their business continuity strategy is greatly lacking. You need to be proactive to compliance, versus reactive after an event has occurred.
Businesses across the globe need to drastically change how they operate, serve their customers, and enable newly remote employees, all while assessing ongoing risks. Remote work is not the only shift on the horizon. Many organizations recognize that any crisis will also affect their back-office IT operations, such as local data centers or colocation facilities. The importance of distributed Cloud in disaster recovery situations cannot be overlooked, your employees need to seamlessly get access to all of the information they need to do their jobs, and you can't be concerned about who is running your on-premise data center.
Microsoft has been actively working to minimize the impact on applications that rely on Azure as a foundation, such as Office 365. The company has long-established processes for dealing with spikes in work brought about at unexpected times.
Microsoft uses stress testing of their systems as a normal course of action. They also rely on existing processes to address the increased cloud infrastructure and network demand that come with the spike in remote work. This includes providing comprehensive service continuity plans for increased usage, remotely managing services, and leveraging a geographically diverse engineering workforce to support those services.
Microsoft is actively working to assess and minimize the impact on Azure infrastructure capacity through established and tested processes. This is in line with what other hyper-scale cloud providers state, and Microsoft is providing service updates to its Azure blog. The areas of interest include ensuring that existing customers have breathing room for workloads that need to expand and contract. The monitoring of cloud services is ongoing, and anticipation of need will spur action to stay ahead of the demand curve.
The benefits of the Cloud are numerous, and if you are still wondering if on-premise is still your safest option, wonder no more. It is not.
Today, more than ever, the cloud is imperative to ALL businesses. Cloud technologies enable our economies to function by relying less on local conditions. A widespread crisis validates the need for the maintenance of corporate functionality based on cloud technologies. As companies' position to maintain productivity and evaluate what to do in general when disaster strikes, it is imperative to rethink disaster recovery plans and explore cloud offerings as mitigation to local disasters. The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow and you cannot be fast without the Cloud.
