Some MSPs may think that their backup software solution will also protect their clients in the event of a technology disaster, however this may not be the case.

Disaster Recovery. Data Backup

Data backup is the act of storing a copy of files or data to a separate storage location so that in the event those files are lost or damaged, they can be restored.

Disaster recovery is the act of restoring those files and data. Although each is a different business continuity and IT security solution, many companies are combining data backup and disaster recovery into one comprehensive solution for easier and faster restores.

Data backup and disaster recovery have been converging.

Today's data backup software now can capture production data changes more frequently, and it is more tightly integrated with backup hardware.

There are also converged hardware products that can backup and replicate application data, eliminating the need for separate software. As a result, the concept of a separate disaster recovery process may be fading away. In this tip, you will learn how backup software products are evolving to include disaster recovery functionality.

Companies, big and small, that heavily rely on IT, know very well that backup is not a luxury but a requirement. Whether it is your internal documents, or customer-facing marketing information, or fast-changing transactional data – it needs to be protected. Losing data is a disaster by itself, and can cause even more disastrous consequences if it is not restored in reasonable time.
