Your original information can get deleted - by accident or on purpose. Your system or network can fail. A hurricane or tornado can strike. That’s why you have another copy safe and sound. It’s why you also have a disaster recovery plan in place to make sure your data is safe. You do have a disaster recovery plan, right?

Like many cloud-based products and services, Disaster Recovery is advantageous for many companies, especially SMB (small and medium businesses), for a number of reasons:
Networks and network security have gone from simple multi-cell organisms into a supernova of colliding devices. As any network admin can tell you, more users and more devices means more complexity. And as networks quickly inflate they quickly become hard to administer.
‘Virtualization’ has become a buzzword… and like most buzzwords, very few actually know what it means, like ‘network security’, ‘scalable’ and ‘think outside the box’.
