What are best practices for cloud repatriation with backups?

“Organizations are occasionally leaving cloud-based backup services to resume an on-premises workflow.

Reasons for cloud repatriation might include:

  • financial (reduction in budget funds);
  • operational (management decision to centralize all IT functions);
  • security (breach occurring at the cloud provider); or
  • strategic (merger or acquisition by another company that does not use cloud-based services).”
