Session Description:
Statistics show that 43 percent of companies who experience a major loss of data will never reopen and 51 percent will close within two years. The longterm survival rate is a mere 6 percent. How well prepared is your business for a major disruption and data loss event?

One way to ensure that a business can stay open after suffering a major data loss is by having a proper backup and recovery system in place. This session will address the latest cloud-based RaaS Recovery as a Service options and ways to ensure your business is able to withstand an unexpected outage that could otherwise result in significant data loss and operational outages, which, by IDC’s estimates, costs businesses upwards of $84,000 per hour or downtime.
