The next question asked and answered in Asigra’s “What you need to know about cloud backup: your guide to cost, security, and flexibility” is an excellent one. The question presented is “How does data recovery typically operate with a cloud model?”
I have summed up the Asigra answer. They highly recommend that every business determine its RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective). By identifying how quickly your business needs to be able to recover after losing data (RTO) and how much data your company can afford to lose (RPO), you will better understand your risk tolerance and business continuity needs.
Having real-time access to valuable competitive business data through a cloud-based BURR solution can have a tremendous impact on the business continuity of an organization.
