Protecting Data Security through Robust and Hybrid Disaster Recovery Infrastructure

Interviewed with Jason Wu, VP of Alibaba Group, President and Senior Fellow of Storage, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.

Most of you may not have heard of World Backup Day, but you are surely familiar with data backup. Backup is an important means to ensure data security. World Backup Day was started by Reddit, an online community from the U.S., and celebrated on 31 March, one day before April Fool’s Day. The purpose of this event is to remind users to back up their data and suggest various online backup programs in order to help improve data security.

On 31 March, Alibaba Cloud teamed up with the National Engineering Laboratory for Disaster Backup and Recovery to conduct a World Backup Day event.

Vigorously Develop Disaster Recovery Infrastructure to Protect Data Security

Professor Xin believes that disaster recovery technology is an important pillar of support for the national cybersecurity strategy and an integral part of the development of IT informatization. Disaster recovery centers are a basic component of data center construction and an important part of new infrastructure construction. Cloud disaster recovery will be a key development factor in the disaster recovery field. Therefore, cloud vendors need to make breakthroughs in disaster recovery, especially in the private network field. At the same time, they must vigorously develop data privacy protection technologies, further expand the definition of disaster recovery technology, and reduce the cloud disaster recovery costs. At the regulatory level, China must further improve its system of cloud disaster recovery standards and allow the industry associations to play a greater role. In addition, data privacy requirements must be backed up with heavy penalties.

Cloud Facilitates Disaster Recovery

Cloud disaster recovery solutions offer higher resource utilization than traditional disaster recovery solutions. Additionally, such solutions reduce IT costs, boost business innovation, and normalize drills, making data protection reliable, controllable, and visible. Relying on the powerful technical capabilities and comprehensive product ecosystem of Alibaba Cloud, Alibaba Cloud Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) supports the backup of databases, files, big data, and virtual machines. This product ensures a data reliability of 99.999999999%, and its storage space can be dynamically scaled almost without limits.
