When a critical system goes down, whether from ransomware, natural disaster or human error, businesses suffer lost revenue and productivity until normal operations resume. The fastest way to recover is to relocate the workload to another server, often at a secondary location. But for most businesses, the redundant hardware, data center space and additional IT resources are too costly to make this a viable option, leaving many small and midsize businesses unprepared in the event of a disaster. With few resources available to manage a full disaster recovery program, many businesses rely on self-service software to meet their basic needs. These self-service solutions can be effective for businesses that can apply proper configuration settings and dedicate resources to manage a disaster recovery environment. But many companies need a more assisted option to help with installation, reporting, auditing, compliance, and hands-on management should disaster strike.
Instead of living with the risk of unexpected downtime, companies can trust Carbonite, which offers small and midsize businesses options for disaster recovery that aligns with their recovery objectives and the resources they have – or may not have – available.
