We are looking for an offsite cloud solution to duplicate data backed up through Rapid Recovery on our local NAS. Seems replication with a cloud VM is the way to go but costs could be significant. If we went with Amazon S3 for read-only archiving, can we still recover data from these archives?
I guess what I'm really asking is what is the main reason to go with a cloud VM for replication verses just archiving the data if it can still be recovered? Is it just the retention policy?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
