Cloud platforms offer not only the capacity to facilitate effective and scalable services for third-party applications and business solutions, but also present an opportunity to implement intricate disaster recovery strategies. For instance, a Chief Technical Officer may opt to maintain operations on private systems in order to effectively manage costs, privacy, and security, while simultaneously leveraging the cloud as an autonomous and immediate disaster recovery support. This can be achieved by building a secondary leg of the IT system that functions as an online cold or hot spare, manages workload peaks, or handles a portion of the workload under normal conditions. To assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of such solutions, appropriate models are essential to examine the trade-offs and explore the parameter space of possible alternatives. This paper presents a modeling approach for the design and evaluation of cloud-based recovery setups.
