Is a do-it-yourself disaster recovery center your best solution?

Years ago, Comdisco and Sungard were the only solutions for protecting the enterprise data center from disaster. The contracts were long-term, the services were expensive, and only the largest companies could afford these disaster recovery solutions.

Today, small and large businesses rely on their computer systems for day-to-day operations. Business owners and IT professionals want to protect their organizations from an interruption.

So what is a do-it-yourself disaster recovery center? We define it as a location where you implement a set of technologies to protect your most important computer systems from an interruption. It might be a one of your branch offices. It might be an outsource data center or colocation facility.

Backup and replication technologies have come a long way. Today, dozens of technologies exist to reliably move your data off-site. You can implement and maintain these technologies in-house, or you can work with an outsource data center provider to use these technologies. Prices can range from a few dollars per month on up.

How do you select a technology to implement a do-it-yourself disaster recovery center? Call the experts in do-it-yourself disaster recovery centers to learn more.
