Disaster Recovery

Bringing Cloud Independence to Your Business Continuity Solutions

The usage-based model of cloud computing is well suited for disaster recovery (DR), and it offers a viable alternative to on-premises solutions. Moving DR operations to the cloud reduces the required data center space and storage infrastructure, resulting in increased cost savings and flexibility.
