Without a reliable backup and replication solution, if confronted with a disaster, whether that be human error or a natural disaster organisations are at risk of downtime, data loss and lack of productivity. It is therefore crucial, to have a solution in place for critical data and applications to ensure that they are secure, safe and accessible for fast recovery, whether that be on premises or in the cloud.
