One of the many misconceptions regarding private cloud is that businesses don’t require a disaster recovery plan for their assets and data. It is just untrue!
In this press release, Chaitanya Kumar, CEO of MIRAT, talks about the conditions necessary for efficient disaster recovery.

Chaitanya points out that though private clouds are designed to have a high uptime availability, we should not rule out the possibility of them failing/going down.
However, whether businesses use their data center or a service provider that offers infrastructure, platform, or fully managed services, there is always the possibility of failure in the private cloud.
According to a recent survey, almost seventy-five percent of enterprise workloads will remain in the company’s private cloud.
“Businesses must have a disaster recovery strategy in place, regardless of the design of their private cloud infrastructure,” says Chaitanya.
Private cloud disaster recovery might provide additional cushioning beyond the standard set by an efficient disaster recovery plan.
Chaitanya shares what could work when planning disaster recovery in the pointers below:
Backups that can be easily replicated:
Backups are kept in the primary production environment, but the organization will find relocating their files to the new location impossible if the recovery site becomes unavailable.
Similarly, in-network transition, the goal is to make production and recovery accessible to end-users. The best disaster recovery strategy for private clouds allows for backup data replication and restoration at a recovery location, ensuring that enterprises don’t suffer any downtime.
Instead of being at the mercy of their provider, companies should be able to declare a catastrophe on their own. Businesses should also look for granularity in this control, which goes beyond that.
The private cloud vendor must be able to handle post-recovery administration. Companies need to outline their needs when it comes to managing recovery environment like providers capacity.
The transition from one network to another is seamless:
A smooth user experience should be provided regardless of whether a corporation uses its own cloud or disaster recovery environment. Users should be unable to identify if a corporation is operating at a different location regardless of where an IP address travels.
Networking is what makes this so tough to accomplish. A recovery environment may not be able to provide the same application and workload performance as expected if it lacks sufficient connectivity.
Readily available controls:
Some companies have different control over their private cloud than they have over their recovery target.
With a provider’s infrastructure, you may have complete control over your private cloud. To avoid losing two levels of control, choose a private cloud instead of a public one because on the former one, you can only access from the operating system and nothing beyond. Cyber security threats like ransomware or malware, equipment failure, or even a natural calamity can serve as tipping points.
