Maximizing business continuity while protecting critical data can be especially challenging for Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMBs). Most data protection systems are designed for large enterprise environments, which do not work for SMBs. For smaller businesses, resources are especially limited, and administrators cannot afford to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for expensive Continuous Data Protection (CDP) solutions. But having a server out of commission isn't an option either. In addition, many data protection solutions overlook the critical component of the Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Your RTO is the maximum amount of time your systems can be out of commission - from when a disruption occurs to the moment your system is available again.
