Local storage may not be as trendy as cloud storage, but it remains a crucial part of most BaaS and DRaaS offerings.
In our current “cloud-native” age, local storage can seem unnecessary or even backward.

In reality, however, local storage remains very valuable for certain types of workloads. Data backup and disaster recovery are among them.
