Offline data recovery devices should be able to bring key applications back online in a matter of hours to reduce losses resulting from downtimes. CIOs, CTOs and IT Managers responsible of data backup need to identify Cloud Providers with robust Disaster Recovery Solutions that are reliable and affordable.
Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) require easy and affordable turnkey options for restoring data in the fastest ways possible.
