Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery Basics in Three Minutes

There is no debate that every company wants to protect their operations from downtime and loss of data. Floods, earthquakes, tornados and hurricanes, not to mention errant cups of coffee, are all capable of shutting down business critical applications and workloads at any time, unexpectedly. Unfortunately, many businesses don’t have the expertise or budget to implement the disaster recovery plan they need. Traditional disaster recovery solutions typically cost too much, they’re too complex, and they are not always reliable.  Cloud-based disaster recovery is an easy to use, less expensive  alternative for traditional solutions.
