Can your business recover from a disaster?

Disaster recovery has traditionally been considered a technology safeguard without a clear return on investment (ROI). But the business benefits of cloud computing are now driving the adoption of disaster recovery (DR) solutions.

Today’s disasters come in many varieties, from naturally occurring events (such as hurricanes, earthquakes and floods) to man-made threats, like employee sabotage, hacking and data theft.

One in three American companies has declared a natural or man-made disaster during the past five years. With an average cost to business exceeding $22,800 for each hour of downtime, the impact of a single disaster is an expensive risk that needs to be averted — and one that can be mitigated through proper oversight and the right technological approach.
