Businesses are at constant risk of disaster, and while that may seem to be a dire pronouncement, a crisis really can strike at any time. As such, it is vital that a company be prepared for the worst, or risk everything.
According to IT World Canada, the goal that every business should work for is 100 percent uptime. Even if a disaster strikes, backup and recovery software should allow a business to keep working straight through any emergency – or at least until it is safe again to do so. This may not seem possible, but with the right solution, it may be easier to achieve than many believe.
With virtualization, cloud storage, and other emerging technologies, a business can almost completely remove the risks of a crisis, allowing disaster recovery to happen immediately and quickly. These tools provide other benefits as well, from enhancing general workflow to reducing the costs of operations.
Ultimately, no business can afford to be without disaster recovery software, but the true task is to find the solution that eliminates as much downtime as possible and makes a return to business efficient and affordable.
