When you have completed the review of the literature, please compose a 3-5 page paper that will combine your reaction and analysis of the materials and answer the following questions:

"Is Cloud Computing a Better Platform for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery?"

Your paper should be short (3-5 pages, not including cover sheet and references) and to the point. You are expected to:

  • Begin this paper by stating your main position on this question clearly and concise.
  • Be sure that you include an outline of what you see as the main elements of a good business continuity and disaster recovery plan
  • Consider the technical, economic, and managerial implications for applying cloud computing for business continuity plans and disaster recovery. Does cloud computing provide the main elements needed for a good BCP and DR and at what cost?
  • Address the advantages/disadvantages of applying cloud computing for BCP and DR.
  • Citing appropriate sources, present the reasons why you take this position. Be sure to make the most effective case you can.
  • Then present the best evidence you can, again citing appropriate sources, against your position -- that is, establish what counterarguments can be made to your original position.
  • Finally, review your original position in light of the counterarguments, showing how they are inadequate to rebut your original statement.

By the end of your paper, you should be able to unequivocally re-affirm your original position.
