What Is Backup and Disaster Recovery?
Wondering how businesses have their critical data available even after a disaster or hacker attack? The answer lies in Backup and Disaster Recovery, a process where data is moved from the primary data center and backed up to an onsite location and/or a secure offsite server. This is done through the use of replication software on the host to replicate data to a secondary site while still protecting data stored onsite as well.

When your data is backed up, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you won’t be stuck with an expensive data recovery bill or risk losing your clients from your inability to deliver products or services on time. And because your data is available always, you can get back up and running in no time should the worst happen.
What Are My Backup and Disaster Recovery Benefits?
Backup and Disaster Recovery also gives you a better understanding of your equipment inventory and allows for better asset management since you’ll know what pieces of equipment you have and which are superfluous. And with detailed documentation as part of the backup and recovery plan, you’ll clearly understand the way your network is functioning so you can remedy issues quickly. What’s more, backup and disaster recovery ensures task redundancy, meaning you can rest easy knowing at least two people can do any one task to keep you covered in an emergency and streamline the workflow of your operation.
