Great question. One of the best topics to start a conversation around cloud is Disaster Recovery. We affectionately call DR “The Gateway Drug to Cloud”, our cloud experts and many customers have said it is the #1 easiest way to get your customers talking and trusting you for cloud.

Here are some good conversation starting questions to ask your customers:

  1. Do you have a cloud based strategy for backup and if not are you open to talking to a consultant who can design one for you?
  2. How prepared are you for a major outage at your primary data center?
  3. Is your existing backup strategy fully tested on a period basis to ensure that you are prepared for a catastrophic event?
