Understanding Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions

Service providers know it is not a question of if a business will experience data loss, it is a matter of when. Backup is widely employed as the last line of defense to protect against threats like human error, infrastructure failure, or natural disaster. A single threat can cripple a business, regardless of whether it is malicious, environmental, or accidental. Backup always provides a necessary safety net.
