I am sure sometime in your professional career you have faced a software, hardware technology failure and needed to recover from backups. Traditional backups were usually performed on expensive tape drives or tape libraries. Based on statistics tape backups failed to restore at a rate between 65 - 80 percent. This is an astounding statistic. Another thing to consider is your data is only as good as your last backup. If you backup your company critical data once a night and you have to restore back day or so then you will loose data and have to manually rebuild. Below are some recommendations for a DRaaS (Disaster Recovery As A Service). Continuallly backing up your data and can restore at anytime.
