This survey investigates the current state of backup and disaster recovery with SMBs, with a focus on evaluating the impact of cloud backup solutions.
Unscheduled downtime can have dramatic impacts on business results. Outages are detrimental to any business, regardless of its size. With increasingly complex and critical IT environments, SMBs are seeking ways to implement reliable backup and recovery solutions to protect their businesses. The cloud has emerged as a desirable alternative to traditional backup and disaster recovery.
