Re: Giant Eagle will still have two data centers
Nice to see a great case study on a realistic cloud adoption. I can definitely see how one day larger organizations like Giant Eagle can even reduce down to a single data centre as we see more efficiencies. But it's great to see how companies are thinking ahead and how SoftLayer in this case, can help also augment their disaster recovery, a critical yet often underlooked area of business continuity. The ability to reduce down from an hour to 15 minutes, or even perhaps instantly, and even the "pilot light" model just illustrates all the side benefits of cloud adoption since honestly, we have gotten so used to focusing on computing benefits.
