Data Backup and Disaster Recovery
While backups may not be top of an organisation’s digital transformation agenda – and they may not excite CTOs and heads of innovation – they will keep senior management teams awake at night if they fail to protect the information a business relies on the most.

But A, it needn’t be that difficult; B, the right TaaS should speak in plain English about the backup solution that’s right for you; and C, it’s extremely important that you get this right.
