#cloud2cloud Live Twitter Chat

Posted by Zaid Rasid

Thanks to everyone who participated in our live Twitter chat we held yesterday and a special thanks to our guest moderator Mr.Backup, Curtis Preston. The discussion was interesting and provided some great insight about the current cloud environment with an emphasis on the new challenges of managing data in SaaS/PaaS applications.

We've captured the chat in its entirety using Storify which you can find below. Here are a few highlighted points worth mentioning from the chat:

  • @ktichenor mentions that analytics data from your website online could be seen as pertinent business data in the cloud
  • To recover your data from any changes or edits made in a CRM application, typically a database restore is required which is a timely process.
  • SLAs can vary from one SaaS/PaaS provider to another with unclear details on how often they backup data. They can be inconsistent and not meet your own SLAs. @wcpreston says that in some cases there are no recovery SLAs at all!
  • According to @ktichenor, most companies trust that the SaaS/PaaS vendors are performing backups of their data. @BrandonOdegard says that the ultimate responsibility lies on the administrator to know whether or not the cloud service has adequate backup plans.

As part of the live event, we also held a draw for a Nexus 7 tablet. Entries were submitted for each Tweet mentioned in the chat. A lucky Twitter follower was chosen by random from the pool of eligible tweets. And the winner is:


Congratulations to @ktichenor. We'll be in touch soon to send you your prize.

Here's a look at the live event:
